Creating memories to last a lifetime for 100 years.
Ranked #57 in Canada.
Perfect for the competitive golfer, but entirely relevant to every player, regardless of ability.
And throughout it all, Royal Mayfair is consistently ranked as one of the Top 100 in Canada, and is the club of choice in Edmonton when major professional championships come knocking. That’s why we’ve hosted the Canadian Open and the Canadian Women’s Open, and why greats have walked our fairways.
A COURSE FOR EVERY MEMBER.
A great course only rises to the top after existing for 100 years because it continues to tap into a golfer’s imagination and outpace their expectations. That’s exactly why Royal Mayfair is still vital and significant, almost 100 years after Stanley Thompson renovated the club’s initial design.
Conditioning is always impressive at the club, meaning every time you, your friends, or your guests tee it up, they’ll experience the best golf has to offer. No detail is spared—that’s what our members expect, and that’s what Royal Mayfair delivers, day after day, year after year.
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT.
Royal Mayfair offers a wonderful practice facility to help you hone your game. With a 265-yard range, two chipping greens, an expansive putting green, and a warmup green, all the elements exist to help you move your abilities to the next level.
At Royal Mayfair, we want you to improve. That’s why we’ve created a golf coaching team that has no rival in the Edmonton market. The golf coaching team is led by Mike Belbin, a two-time winner of the PGA of Canada Assistants Championship, whose instruction has been featured in SCOREGolf.
In fact, Royal Mayfair is committed to having one of the best teams of PGA of Canada professionals at any facility in Canada. Led by Director of Golf Matt Johnson, as well as seven other PGA of Canada professionals, and using the latest in technology, including TrackMan and Foresight launch monitors, the goal of the team at Royal Mayfair is to help you shave shots off your game.
“One of only several Canadian golfing societies with the ‘Royal’ prefix and its splendid course is certainly worthy of such a regal club.”
DESIGNED BY GENIUS.
The initial Mayfair course was crafted by J. Munro Hunter, a giant Scotsman known for his prodigious length off the tee. It opened with a shot from the Mayor of Edmonton in 1922. “The course, as laid out, was pretty straight forward,” wrote Shirley Graham in the club’s history.
It didn’t take long for the nascent club to recognize it would have to make some changes to elevate the course. The club turned to Stanley Thompson, Canada’s best-known designer, who was responsible for several of Alberta’s top courses, including the work at Jasper Park Lodge and Banff Springs. Thompson heavily renovated Mayfair over several seasons, creating more bunkers, reshaping greens, and rerouting holes. The result has Thompson’s hallmarks—bold bunkering, routes to challenge the best golfer, as well as allowing the mid-handicapper to have an enjoyable time on the course.
In recent years, Royal Mayfair has retained Doug Carrick to help fashion a restoration plan for the club.
