New outdoor activities available at Broadmoor Public Golf Course

Strathcona County invites the community to enjoy new cross-country ski tracks, snowshoeing, walking and tobogganing fun at the Broadmoor Public Golf Course this winter season.

Ready for mid-December (weather dependent), cross-country skiing at the golf course will be a FREE winter activity available for all to enjoy. There will be three loops of tracks, groomed three times a week, set throughout the course. Skiers will require their own equipment, as equipment rentals will not be available at the golf course location.

Residents are also welcome to walk, toboggan and snowshoe throughout the course. If not skiing, please avoid the groomed ski trails to help maintain optimal trail conditions. As a reminder, dogs must be leashed while onsite.

Strathcona County is appreciative of the support from the following sponsors who helped make these winter activities at the golf course possible; Air Products, Leading Edge Physiotherapy, Canadian Tire – Sherwood Park South location, and Cowan Graphics.

Washrooms are available 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and are located on the exterior of the Broadmoor Clubhouse. The golf course is open 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. for daily use.

This new approach encourages outdoor recreation and fitness throughout the winter. Leading an active lifestyle, especially during the current pandemic, is important for overall health and aligns with the newly approved Recreation and Culture Strategy.

Additional cross-country skiing trails are available at the Strathcona Wilderness Centre. Regular trail fees remain in effect. Trails at the Strathcona Wilderness Centre will be groomed daily, as needed.
