Sturgeon Point Golf Club is a unique full service golf facility - with a fully licensed clubhouse, a full practice range and putting/chipping greens - we have all the amenities of a private club, open to the public.
Our historic 9 hole golf club built in 1899 continues to build on the tradition of challenging but accessible golf.
The course takes you along Sturgeon Lake, playing alongside the lake and through mature oaks and pines. With course conditions unparalleled in the region, this mature course will challenge good golfers, but stay accessible to those out for a good time.

Average sized greens that are very mature. I'm sure theses greens can be made very fast during peak season. Mild contours but just about any part of the green can be used for a pin location.
Sturgeon Point has those great traditional rolling fairways that play havoc with an electric cart.
Fairways are quite generous and the rough is quite short. Even the worst of players should be able to keep a ball playable.
Three sets of tees with a maximum yardage of close to 5900 yards for a complete 18 holes.
Tees are slightly raised to identify them from this otherwise very flat track of land.
Sturgeon Point has a classic design and a proud history. Not many Canadian courses can lay claim to being founded in the 1800's.
A few strategically placed bunkers attracted a number of my golf balls around the greens. Other hazards are at a minimum.
A few screens can be seen around some tees to protect golfers.
A great couples, seniors, and family course. Sturgeon Point would be a great place to learn the game.
A newly built dock often sees golfers arrive by boat.
Lots of open space to spray your ball. A few mature trees can easily enter play. Hole #9/18 will almost surely have two trees hamper access to the green. A few earlier holes also have a tree in mid-fairway (#2 & #4).
You'll start your round with two short par 4s that can be reached by long hitters.
Sturgeon Lake provides a nice backdrop to the south of the course and is clearly visible on the first two holes. The clubhouse also overlooks the lake.
A view down any fairway had me wishing I could replace my front lawn with a chunk of Sturgeon Point fairway.
You'll need to walk Sturgeon Point to enjoy the course.
Staff at Sturgeon Point are knowledgeable in all aspects of golf and the history of the club. I was given a brief tour and saw some of the earlier photos of the founders and of the clubhouse.
The historic clubhouse/pro shop moved to it's existing location in the early 1900's. To my knowledge, the course has never had a liquor license and only obtains a permit on special occasions. This building is about the history!
The pro shop has basic supplies to suit basic golf needs.
There's not a lot of electric carts but I would never recommend using one at Sturgeon Point. The rolling fairways can provide more bounce then a normal butt can handle.
Sturgeon Point has a strong membership of 300 plus.
I wish I had the time to delve further in the history of Sturgeon Point. I'm sure some of the more senior members would have some wonderful stories to tell.
Only recently did Sturgeon Point post signage along to highway to direct traffic to their course.
