Canadian Badlands Canadian Badlands

In prehistoric times, much of North America was a lush subtropical habitat embracing a vast inland sea. This is where the dinosaurs roamed 70 million years ago. Fast forward to present-day central and southern Alberta where their bones now rest in ancient riverbeds, framed by the maroon-striped canyons of the mysterious Canadian Badlands. Find yourself a little bit out there. Wander through the cottonwoods along the banks of meandering rivers. Ride horseback through prairies and grasslands just like the early cowboys and ranchers. Discover the history of the pioneers who flocked west to build the railway and seek their fortunes in coal and clay.

Henderson Lake Golf Club

Lethbridge, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

Henderson Lake Golf Club is a gem in the city of Lethbridge – a beautifully mature, 18-hole course that has been delighting golfers of all skill levels for over 95 years. If you go on foot, the experience of golfing here is very much a walk in the park. A canopy of cottonwood trees lines the edges of every hole, and there are gorgeous views of the neighbouring lake on much of the back nine. The course offers many challenges to be sure, but when golfing at Henderson Lake most people find themselves feeling completely at ease.
