Located 15 minutes south of Prince George (off of Highway 97 coming up from Quesnel). This charming 5780 yard 18-hole layout is one of the newer full-length 18 hole golf courses in the golf boomtown of Prince George. It may not be the Aberdeen Glen G&CC but it is close and it is the place where the Average Joe can slug it out and have a chance of scoring well with out emptying out the wallet. From late April through to early October, Aspen Grove offers a test to any golfer of any level.
Aspen starts off with a nice 347-yard par 4 holes that has a slight dogleg right then left hole. There is water on the right and even though the trees look dark and dangerous the hole is wide and open and as long as you keep it out of the water and the bunkers the trees should not be a problem.
The number 1 handicap hole is number 8. A par five measuring 501 yards from the back tees. This hole is a sharp dogleg right par five that plays a lot longer than the card reads. Two water hazards await you on the right hand side and there is sand as well on the right hand side of the green. The smart shot is a three or 5 wood laid out to the left and a mid iron approach shot that follows the rolling contour of the fairway. This green, like the rest, is sloped nicely and medium paced. The par 3 holes range from 158 to a long, long 234 yards monster. You'll enjoy your game and you'll need every club in the bag. There is little to look at off of the course so I wouldn't bother with the Polaroid and you will wander around a little looking for some of the tee boxes after some holes (why don't more courses put up proper directional signs for the tourist I will never know) but all of this is a small price to pay for a charming way to spend an afternoon. The clubhouse and pro shop is top notch and the practice
facilities are all you'll need to both warm up or to sweat long and hard on to work out what ever ails your swing.
