A few words Golf Edmundston
Let us introduce ourselves
Situated in the legendary Republic of Madawaska, the Fraser Edmundston Golf Club offers you an unforgettable challenge throughout your round. We offer a variety of topographical changes, mature trees lining the fairways, well placed bunkers, the famous railroad track and lake.
The Fraser Edmundston Golf Club was established in 1926. It was a pulp and paper company by the name of Fraser Inc., located in the city of Edmundston, which decided to build a nine-hole golf course. The course was opened in 1926 and, in 1936, its first clubhouse was built. In the mid 40’s, Fraser decided to purchase additional land to expand its golf course and in 1947, a brand new 18-hole course was completed. The course was completely redesigned and rebuilt by a noted golf architect, Mr. Albert Murray.
It is also one of the rare facilities to possess a five-hole Junior Course designed exclusively for our very young golfers.The Fraser Edmundston Golf Club continues to be rated as one of the best golf courses in the Maritime Provinces. In 1956, the Club and its members proudly hosted the Canadian Amateur Golf Championship when Moe Norman won against Gerry Magee. Mr Norman still holds the course record with an astonishing score of 64, which is 9 strokes under par. In 2002, the Club again had the privilege of hosting yet another Amateur Championship. The winner was an American, Mr. Dilbert Pruitt.
In 2005, Fraser Papers transferred the ownership of the Club to the city of Edmundston. A Board of Directors was appointed by the City to oversee the operations of the Club. Mr. Jean-Pierre Cyr presides over this group of 7 volunteer members. In 2007, a brand new and enlarged driving range was completed. This facility is accessible to everyone, members or non-members.
In 2008, the Fraser Edmundston Golf Club received a Recommended Play Award from Golf in Canada for “providing quality, variety, and most of all, enjoyment. All the things Golf in Canada looks for in a great golf course.” That same year, Golf Digest gave it a Four-star rating as well as including it in its Best Places to Play list.
