Built in 2009, Inuvik's Road’s End Golf Club boasts a grassy, 250-yard driving range and a three-hole course. Keep an eye out for ravens as you swing – the course once had to close when the sneaky birds made off with all the golf balls.
Come putt with us
Golfing in the Northwest Territories? Absolutely. We golf all through the spring, summer and fall, and we've been known to stage golf tournaments in the winter snow as well. In June and July, 24 hours of daylight allows golfing round the clock. Several courses feature a range of necessary equipment, including golf carts. Visitors are always welcome. Most of our clubs are open May through September.
