You’ll be teeing off in about fifteen minutes. Just enough time to check in at the pro shop and grab a sleeve of new golf balls before taking your first swing. As you make your way down the gently sloping path around the Club House, you can’t help but notice the energy of the place. Just being here makes you feel good. Maybe it’s the view overlooking Henderson Lake. Maybe it’s because this classic golf course is right in the heart of the city. Maybe it’s the retro vibe of the building that first opened its doors in 1960. Or maybe it’s because everyone here, from the pros to the shop staff and starters is as warm and welcoming as the southern Alberta sun.
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.
