Still confused? Here’s what Snow Golf in Camrose is all about…

It’s different. It’s fun. What a great way to spend some time outside with your friends in this winter!

Snow Golf is a sport based on golf but played over snow instead of grass.  The holes for this event are located in strategic areas around the City of Camrose.  Using a golf club and a soft foam ball, teams of four tee off at designated spots and keep score just like on the golf course. To get from hole to hole, your golf cart is your car.

The day ends up with a Banquet and Awards Ceremony, with Silent Auction, Silent Donation, 50/50’s, Mobile Escape Room, at Norsemen Inn.

WE WANT TO THANK OUR 2018 SPONSORS 

Show them your support by drinking, eating and shopping local!  “One Less Trip!”
