Saskatchewan’s oldest golf club is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. Royal Regina Golf Club is one of only a small group of golf courses in Canada to include the word “royal” in its name.

Also known as “the home of golf in Saskatchewan,” Royal Regina opened as a nine-hole course in May 1899. The club soon after moved from its Crescents-area location to land that was leased from the North West Mounted Police. The club moved again to the western part of the city along Wascana Creek before considering a move back to the Crescents area. It finally relocated to its current location in 1911 on leased property next to the RCMP Depot.

When moving to its current location, the course consisted of 13 holes with golfers playing the first five holes twice for a full round of 18 holes.

Both the men’s and women’s mid-amateur provincial championships will be played at Royal Regina in July.
