Wilderness Golf Course
Annie Lake Wilderness Golf Course, Yukon’s first golf course, is located 30 miles south of Whitehorse at km 2 on Annie Lake Road.
Annie Lake Wilderness Golf Course is a rough course built deep in the beautiful boreal forest. Greens are sand and must be swept after play. You can play as late as you want in the summer months, but don’t forget the mosquito repellent ! There is a day use area with picnic tables and a children's play area. Please no overnight camping.
Built as a 9 hole course by U.S. Army personnel during the Second World War, it has been a favorite golf venue for over sixty years. In 1949 the rights to the land were relinquished by local cattle grazer, Steve Veerman, and the club was incorporated as the Whitehorse Golf and Country Club. In the mid 1950’s, Sunday work parties were organized to clear fairways, cut survey lines and fill gopher holes. Transportation was provided from downtown to the golf course and mid-day picnics were the highlight of the day. The first tournament was held on Sunday July 10, 1955.
In the 1970’s, the club was renamed Annie Lake Golf and Country Club. More trees were cleared to add another 9 holes and several of the original holes were redesigned. By 1980 membership was up to 130 and the club offered workshops and instruction clinics to players.
Annie Lake Golf and Country Club was the main location for golf activities in the Yukon until Mountainview Golf Course opened in Whitehorse in 1987.
In the spring/summer of 2021 the Annie Lake Wilderness Golf Course had a major facelift thanks to the Community Development Fund ! We installed new t-boxes, upgraded the putting greens, practice area and driving range. New picnic tables, outhouses and a kids playing area was constructed alongside a parking lot upgrade. Come and check it out !!
Members play for free, and non-members have a 5 dollar drop in fee. All proceeds go towards golf course maintenance!
Annie Lake Golf Course is DAY USE ONLY. No overnight camping and no fires at any time. Please do not use your ATV as a golf cart on the fairways. Your cooperation will help make golfing a pleasurable experience for all users
