Redcliff Riverview Golf Club tracks the South Saskatchewan River and delivers on the promise made by its name. The river views are indeed some of the badlands’ best. Perched on cliffs overlooking the river, even experienced golfers may need another practice swing before sending their Calloway over a rugged, hoodoo-filled coulee.
Although stunning, the view doesn’t necessarily make things easier as the river below your feet can draw the eye towards the horizon. And depending on the time of year, you may be staring down storm clouds looming over a hundred kilometres away.
Yes, Canada’s badlands landscape can certainly play tricks on you. Keep your cool, admire the view, take a breath, and swing for the fairway. Just like back home.
