Henderson Lake Golf Club has been in operation for over a century. During that time, the course has tested golfers’ ability to navigate tree-lined fairways, water hazards, sand traps and small greens amidst a relaxing, picturesque backdrop. The multiple tee compounds allow players of all abilities to play and compete within the same groups.
The golf club is only five minutes from downtown Lethbridge, making it all the more convenient to drop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner at the restaurant and lounge, followed by a round of nine, 12 or 18 holes.
If you need a bit of practice to knock the rust off before you hit the links, Henderson Lake offers chipping and putting areas. There’s also a pro shop on-site in case you need to pick up some equipment or apparel to raise your game.
