Golf Course Aerial Challenge

Golf courses are a sight to see from above; wonderfully crafted puzzles working through the natural terrain like works of art. But people don’t often view golf courses from above — we look at golf courses on the ground as we play them.

In this challenge, we’re going to put your golf course knowledge to the test and see if you can guess golf courses from their aerial photos.

Introducing the Golf Course Aerial Challenge.


The goal is to recognize the golf courses from a Google Maps image. There are 18 courses and each photo should prove progressively more difficult to recognize.

These courses are from all over the country, with every province represented, so get out your photos and open up your Maps app!

Three (3) names will be drawn at random from those with the highest accurate number of guesses to win a dozen Srixon Q-Star golf balls.

RESPOND BY COMMENTING ON THE POST BELOW WITH PHOTO NUMBER AND GUESS (i.e. #1 Augusta National)

Note that all comments need to be approved manually before we post so it may take a bit to appear.

Good luck, and let’s see how many you can get!

    Rather than typing them out, I just used Alex’s list which was the same as mine.
    I just added Shaughnessy as Number 7.

    It was a fun challenge. Took me forever to get Whirlpool.
