Riverside Golf Course

Plot Your Course Hole-by-Hole With the Pros

Head Pro: Ken Ingoldsby

If you're looking for a challenge, you'll find it just east of Dawson Bridge at Edmonton's breathtaking Riverside Golf Course. One of the most challenging 18-hole courses in Edmonton, Riverside is one of the finest municipal courses in Canada. Heavily treed with fairways that dip away in all the "right" places, Riverside is filled with plenty of opportunities to raise the old blood pressure and bend the clubs.

6,242 yards, Par 71… Your Challenge Awaits

The good news is the clubhouse is licensed and offers you a chance to recount your victories and commiserate over balls gone astray.

Hole #1 - Par 4

Please ensure the group ahead of you is on the green before you tee off. This will help maintain the pace of play for the rest of your round.

Hole #2 - Par 4

Similar to the first hole, this short Par 4 only requires a long iron or fairway wood to reach the widest landing area on the fairway.

Hole #3 - Par 4

Check the pin position on this short Par 4. If the flag is on the right side of the green, your tee shot should favour the left side of the fairway.

Hole #4 - Par 3

Hole #5 - Par 4

The fifth hole is a delight for the "big" hitter. A good long drive down the fairway will leave you with an easier second shot into this long Par 4.

Hole #6 - Par 5

Do not let the elevated tee distract you too much on this picturesque Par 5. The green is reachable in two for long hitters; however, accuracy is essential with each shot as wayward hits will make it difficult to approach this well bunkered green.

Hole #7 - Par 3

This is a long and difficult Par 3. Tee shots play uphill into a green with a false front. Always aim to the middle of the green to keep the hidden left side sand bunker out of play.

Hole #8 - Par 4

There is lots of trouble on this demanding and difficult Par 4. The ideal tee shot on this dog leg right should be down the left centre of the fairway to leave you with an easier, yet challenging, approach to this very small green.

Hole #9 - Par 5

This dog leg left fairway slopes from left to right and has a great view of the downtown skyline. Tee shots should favour the left side as everything kicks right off the hill. Second shots should also play left to bounce back off the slope.

Hole #10 - Par 4

This Par 4 dog leg right requires a good long drive down the middle of the fairway if you hope to reach the green in two.

Hole #11 - Par 5

Risk and reward. The farther you hit off the tee the narrower the landing area gets. The undulating fairway slopes down to the left and right with plenty of tree on both sides to challenge your second shot.

Hole #12 - Par 3

Just because you think it's a short hole doesn't make this an easy Par 3. This small green is protected by a desert of deep sand bunkers on the right and left side of the green. Pars on this hole are few and far.

Hole #13 - Par 5

This Par 5 offers a challenge to any player who misses the fairway. Drives should favour the right side as the fairway slopes from right to left, and long hitters must be aware of the trees to the left.

Hole #14 - Par 3

This short elevated Par 3 is trickier than it looks. Be cautious with your club selection. The green slopes quite a bit from back to front and left to right.

Hole #15 - Par 4

To reach this long Par 4 in two, you will need a good drive down the centre of the fairway.

Hole #16 - Par 4

This is a great Par 4. For long hitters, the landing areas get narrower the farther you hit from the tee. Also, longer tee shots landing on the edges of the fairway tend to bounce hard towards the trees.

Hole #17 - Par 3

Club selection and shot accuracy is crucial if you want to find the putting surface of this difficult Par 3.
