Assistant/Apprentice Professional

The Edmonton Country Club, one of Alberta’s premier private golf clubs, is located along the picturesque banks of the North Saskatchewan River minutes from downtown but seemingly far from the city. Established in 1896, and currently celebrating its 125th anniversary, the Edmonton Country Club is steeped in a tradition of excellence. The course was redesigned by famous Canadian golf architect Stanley Thompson between 1945-1947 and represents the best of Thompson’s design features in a serene, parkland setting. With a full and active membership and a desire to continually enhance the facilities, the club will complete an 18-hole greens and bunker renovation in 2023 while remaining open for member play during the construction period.
