Located next to Norman Wells’ Heritage Hotel, by the banks of the Mackenzie River, here is the only golfing to be found in the Sahtu. The grassy, evergreen-lined Ptarmigan Ridge course is a green oasis, and a bucket-list item to be sure for any golfers looking for an experience off-the-beaten-path. Just be careful with your swing. Ptarmigan Ridge’s modest four holes — soon to be expanded to six — should not be taken lightly. The wrong slice and your ball could sail right into the mighty Mackenzie.
