The golf course
Mini Links Miniature Golf
18 hole miniature golf course, fun for the whole family. Tourists welcome, no reservations required.
Adults $4.50; Children 14 and under $3.50. Family and group rates available.
Mini Links also has the best ice cream place in Grande Prairie in the summer - excellent shakes, sundaes, and they are always stocked on blue bubblegum ice cream!
Equipment: No equipment required - they provide balls, putters, score cards and pencils!
Apparently, as seen in the pic, they also rent bikes here.
Directions: Located just off downtown in Muskoseepi Park - access via 100 Avenue
Phone: (780) 538-4500
Bear Creek Golf and Country Club
18 holes, pro shop, clubhouse/lounge, and cart, club rentals.
$13/9 holes, $21/18 holes weekdays; $15/9 holes, $24/18 holes weekends/holidays. In the fall, unlimited usage after 6 p.m. for $12
This is a great, kid friendly golf course. No dress code, slower pace, and smaller than the classy courses. This is the place to go when you want to laugh and drink beer!
Directions: Located west of the city on 132 Avenue (turn at GP Honda)
Phone: (780) 538-3393
