Mannville Golf Course – One Of The Best In Alberta

August 27, 2019

 

 The Mannville Riverview Golf Course & RV Resort was recently named one of the best in the province in a recent review by Golf Life Alberta’s Ryan O’Neill. 
“If I was living out in the Mannville area I’m fairly confident I could play that golf course as a member for the rest of my life and never get bored. It’s that good and that much fun to play. Everything was absolutely stunning. 
This is another course to add to the list of top quality tracks that are out east of Edmonton joining Whitetail and Coal Creek; even with as many balls I blasted into the Vermillion River. For anyone making a trip out east, it’s just off the Yellowhead and will make for a delightful little golf stop; I highly recommend the visit. 
Even though we are in the early parts of my great nine hole golf journey, we may already have a lock for a top five candidate for Greatest Nine Hole track in Alberta. It’s courses like this that motivate me even more to journey across the province to find and play these nine hole wonders,” said O’Neill.
Thrilled to have such a review, Manager Ken Staden said, “We are having a good season despite the difficult golfing weather. The course and campsites are probably in the best shape they have ever been in!” 
He went on to say that the 63-site campground has been getting busier each summer with returning golfers and those just wanting to camp. Last year, the RV Resort received a top four in Alberta award from the RV West golf magazine. 
“The facility is being utilized for more than just golfing and camping. We have hosted weddings and fundraisers for Mannville Minor Ball and the Mannville Health Care Centre. The number of school and family reunions has increased, and the menu has expanded so the number of people stopping for food has as well. 
“Overall, we are satisfied with how the season is going and are thankful for the support. To read the full independent golfer’s viewpoint you can visit https://golflifeab.com/finding-albertas-greatest-nine-hole-courses-mannville-riverview-golf-course/,” said Staden.
He noted that they still have a few campsites available for the September long weekend, and are looking forward to hosting the Ladies Scramble on September 7, and 2-Person Iron-Man on September 28.
