When southbound drivers whiz past Leduc on Highway 2, they get an overpass assisted view of the Leduc Golf & Country Club layout. But, folks in the know understand that the course has to be played to be fully appreciated.
On the Fairway
The Leduc course has undergone a few changes, part of a three-phase, $3 million improvement project. A new pond between the ninth and 18th holes adds a level of hazard for both holes. The 15th hole has been lengthened to 454 yards, and new tee boxes dictate a 208 yard tee shot over water.
Regulars say the measure of a golfer's ability is how they do on the fifth, sixth and seventh holes, a troika of par-fours with their own individual callenges. The fifth hole has one of the largest greens on the course, the sixth hole has bunkers right and water left around the green, and the seventh has bunkers guarding the large kidney-shaped green.
There are a few other challenges at Leduc. Water is in play on 11 of 18 holes. The par five 11th hole, at 530 yards, requires an accurate drive and precise layup shot before an approach shot to a green guarded on three sides by bunkers.
