Deer Valley Golf Club
One of Saskatchewan’s Premier Hosts
Deer Valley Golf Club, located just a short 15 minute drive northwest or Regina, continues to top the list as one of the more popular hosts for corporate events, Amateur Championships, Junior Golf events and PGA of Canada – Saskatchewan Zone events.
Tucked peacefully in the scenic Qu’Appelle Valley, the golf course is also a popular host to the traveling golfer. With a well groomed practice facility and inviting deck, both conveniently located steps away from the sprawling clubhouse, it’s easy to see why Deer Valley is highly visited by golfers of all skill levels and ages.
Head Professional John Greenough, who recently held the position of President of the PGA of Canada – Saskatchewan Zone, continues to enhance his Golf Event Management expertise to assist golf event organizers in effectively managing their events hosted at Deer Valley. John has been carefully selective in providing groups an optional event registration and scoring solution, saving countless hours for everyone involved. Adding to the overall success of any event at Deer Valley is the impressive 8,000 square foot clubhouse and savory meal options.
The well maintained golf course, set alongside the Deer Valley Development, was built within 475 acres of natural valley and prairie terrain. Before your next visit, be sure to check out the fantastic drone video on the Deer Valley website. A gentle par 5 opening hole, with a generous wide fairway, allows golfers to confidently ease into their round. This is one of those golf courses that holds your attention throughout the entire 18 holes, with an amazing view of the valley from numerous viewpoints.
The leading golf manufacturers such as Titleist, PING and Callaway Golf make frequent visits to Deer Valley with their newest products on demo days, a great added service due to the expansive practice facility and supportive PGA of Saskatchewan Professionals available to the golfers. Deer Valley is the custom fitting authority in Regina and provides a Certified Fitting Professional and custom fitting systems that are on site at all times.
Junior Golf in Saskatchewan is thriving, due in large part to golf courses such as Deer Valley consistently delivering quality, affordable Junior Golf Programs. Families will want to inquire about Deer Valley’s Diamond in the Rough Junior Golf Camp. The Camp originated in the 1990’s by Amateur golfer Mark Greenough who saw a need for Junior instruction that was more advanced than beginner, but not at the elite stage. “The Juniors get to work with a PGA of Canada Professional for the days and are exposed to several topics, including; tournament preparation, rules and etiquette and course management”, states John Greenough. The entire facility at Deer Valley Golf Club is made available. Lunch is provided each day (included in entry fee), with the students being able to play between 9 and 18 holes each day. The camp’s goal is to produce future golfers with a competence and love of the game.
Following your round, or after your golf lesson, you’ll want to relax on the outdoor deck and soak in the views of the golf course and surrounding valley. As one of the top destination golf facilities in the province of Saskatchewan, be sure to block off plenty of time to fully enjoy all the amazing amenities that Deer Valley Golf Club has to offer.
