The Golf Course at Forest Heights
Wait till you try our 9th Hole!!
This quietly peaceful course near the town of Sundre is set overlooking the Red Deer River Valley in the rugged beautiful foothills of Central Alberta. It features splendid views of the Eagle Valley to the East, and the magnificent Rocky Mountains to the west, the best views of which can be enjoyed from the 5th tee.

Its eighteen hole layout measures 6,341 yards from the back tees and plays over rolling terrain with 100 foot spruce trees lining the fairways in places. Its fairways are broad and generous, its greens large and undulating - making this a place where you can pull out the big stick and let it fly from the tee.

If you talk to anyone who has played the course, the hole they are most likely to want to tell you about is the Par 4 9th, a tricky 335 yard dogleg right that features a tee off over a large water hazard. Your first shot must be a minimum of 150 yards to clear the water hazard, with no convenient bail out area as an option. An excellent shot is also required for your approach to the 9th's two-tiered green, guarded in front by a pair of bunkers, and back-stopped by large spruce trees.
