Located in Drumheller, Dinosaur Trail Golf & Country Club is situated in the heart of the Badlands. The course's wooded terrain provides a striking contrast to the surrounding desert-like landscape. Jagged hills sprinkled with ancient boulders and cacti provide a setting that is truly unique. The site is home to dinosaur bone beds that date back 75 million years, which is where the club gets its name. The golf course was carefully constructed around these beds and the 11th hole was even reconfigured so as not to disturb the possible dinosaur skeletons embedded in the hillside. The layout has a player-friendly front nine, which you'll want to take advantage of because the back nine is much more challenging. Dinosaur Trail's final nine holes are even known for being one of the area's toughest closing nines.

Terrific experience

The whole course was a blast to play and a beautiful site to see, but specifically the back 9 while being very challenging brought some of the most fun I’ve had golfing!

Easy front, challenging back

Front 9 is just back and forth with straight holes. Back 9 has some forced carries and blind shots. Greens were smooth and played well. I played the course twice on consecutive days and never saw a marshall.

If I’m in town again, I’d definitely play it again.

Great course amazing back 9

While this was not the first time I played the course, I usually just forget the front 9 and can't wait to start the back. This time I really took the time to appreciate the front and while definitely not as majestic as the back it did take me by surprise how good the front actually is.......with that being said if you haven't played here before just speed through the front and get to the back.

A very unique experience

This course was something else! The front 9 is all flat, very lush and green. The back nine is incredible. It’s really hard and basically target golf but worth the view.

Back 9 is very unique

The front nine is nice, well kept and in good condition. The back nine is where the fun starts. What a cool, unique and challenging set of holes. Will definitely be playing here again!

Classic & Challenging

First 9 - pretty standard prairie track.
2nd 9 - tricky, leave the driver in the trunk. Beautiful scenery. Building the fairways into the badlands was no easy task I'm sure. But it was worth the effort. Staff very friendly & accommodating .
