No matter what your pleasure, Dorchester Ranch RV and Golf Resort can probably accommodate your every recreational wish. Located a few miles south of the Village at Pigeon Lake, the resort is about 45 minutes south of the Edmonton International Airport in Alberta, Canada.
In the spring of 1987, the first 9 holes of Dorchester golf course opened. Then, in 2005 the course was expanded to 18 holes and is now a par 72 measuring 6,415 yards from the tips. Former PGA professional Chi Chi Rodriguez has played this stunning course on several occasions.
The highlight of the golfing year is the annual four-man “Fall Scramble,” held the second Saturday in September. This tournament is open to everyone except golf professionals and assistants, with the winner taking home $15,000 – $17,000.
In addition to golf, Dorchester Ranch provides a wealth of amenities for all age groups, while the surrounding area is rich with countless attractions.
Children’s splash park, swimming pool, tennis and half basketball courts, barbecue picnic areas, walking trails, recreation center, fireside lounge, community hall, showers, and laundry facilities are all part of the make-up of Dorchester Ranch RV and Golf Resort.
The resort also offers 175 fully-serviced residential size RV/park model lots and 24 residential home lots, which are intertwined within the 18 hole golf course. Encompassing more than 270 acres, Dorchester Ranch offers plenty of room for taking a stroll down one of the many paths or roadways, while enjoying the picturesque views of the surrounding rolling terrain.
Whether you’re an avid golfer, bookworm, hiker, biker, or poolside lounger, there is plenty to do at the resort. Boating and beach enthusiasts are just 10 minutes away from the tranquil waters of Pigeon Lake. For your day-to-day needs you will find all the essentials such as a grocery store in the Village at Pigeon Lake, plus some amenities that you would not expect to find here like a spa, clothing store, and several restaurants.
