The perfectly groomed grass, the beautiful trees, and the warmth of summer make golf an excellent way to enjoy the great outdoors in the summer. While a round of golf can come with plenty of frustration, those with the skill and patience to succeed can do some amazing things on the course. Although golf is a means of relaxation for many, playing competitively turns the pressure up a notch. For golfers looking to feel the pressure of a 10 metre putt with the match on the line or are simply looking to see how they stack up against some of the area’s best golfers, you can put your skills to the test in any of these Edmonton AB golf tournaments and scrambles taking place in summer 2015.
