Located southwest of Edmonton, situated along the dramatic banks of the North Saskatchewan River, Blackhawk is widely considered one of Canada’s premiere private facilities. Created by Alberta’s own Rod Whitman, Blackhawk was among the first modern day, minimalist designs in the country, offering wide fairways, rugged bunkering and dynamic green sites.
Ranked as the Best New Course in Western Canada by Golf Digest when it opened in 2003, and currently ranked #20th in Canada by SCORE Golf Magazine, Blackhawk Golf Club has all the amenities and atmosphere that you would expect from word class private club and is committed to providing an unforgettable golf and social experience.
“Blackhawk is a bold vision that is reminiscent of the best golf courses created in Canada by the likes of Stanley Thompson,” writes golf architecture critic, Robert Thompson. “In fact, Blackhawk may have more in common with (Stanley) Thompson’s work, including the great designer’s predilection for wide fairways, strategic bunkering and occasionally wild greens, than any Canadian designer in the last fifty years.”*Please Note: This golf club is private, not open for public play.
