In the beautiful foothills of Southern Alberta lies a golfer’s dream. The Coyote Creek Resort, near Sundre, is situated just a short distance from the magnificent Rocky Mountains and attracts golfers and others to the area for fun and relaxation in green and peaceful surroundings. After a round, the golf course clubhouse is the perfect place to unwind, socialize and experience the warm, friendly resort atmosphere. Situated off the dining room is a large deck overlooking a crystal clear pond stocked with rainbow trout.
