Evergreen Golf Centre is about to be my new best friend.
I’m a new golfer and, frankly, just in it for fun. I don’t do “weather”. I often forget to count my shots. I prefer to play in my Converse sneaks … But, this is the year I’ve committed to getting better!
So, I’ll be spending a LOT of time at Evergreen this summer. It’s a great Par-3 course. It’s accessible for new golfers (i.e. it won’t make us cry!) but it also gives more skilled golfers a great opportunity to work on their short games, thanks to the short holes with water hazards and sand traps.
Here are my favourite things about Evergreen Golf Centre:
I’ve had the pleasure of participating in Ladies League for the past four years, and it’s a hoot! The league is super chill – maybe not for the serious golfer, but great for casual practice and having fun with the girlfriends. They go out of their way to make us all feel welcome and appreciated, and have a fun game or challenge and prizes every week.
Don’t let the Par-3 format fool you. You can get golf lessons from some skilled pros at Evergreen. They offer group and private lessons for men, women and juniors.
The course has a great driving range. It’s open year-round, with overhead heaters for the die-hards. They also have Trackman technology, so they can really hone in on your problem areas and make a quick difference in your performance.
They also offer Golf Clinics for just $40 a session!
Other Fun Activities at Evergreen Golf Centre
There’s outdoor fun for the whole family at Evergreen!
- Toptracer Range – Play fun mini games or 18 holes at one of the famous courses from around the world. This is a hybrid of real and virtual play – you hit your ball on to the driving range and Toptracer tracks your shot and shows you where you landed on the virtual course. Bring the whole family – there’s group seating and you can even have snacks!
- Go-Karts – Test your racing skills on a fun course. You must be 18+ to drive, but you can check out a double cart and still take the kiddos along. This is a seasonal activity.
- Mini Putt – Who doesn’t love mini golf?! This is a fun mini putt, with bridges, a water fall and some great phot-ops.
Evergreen has a great pro shop. They offer a wide variety golf clubs, attire, shoes, golf bags, and more. And their fantastic pros can help you out with club fittings or choosing the right equipment to improve your game – or just look great out there!
