The project is supported by the Waskesiu Foundation, Waskesiu Recreation Association, Waskesiu Community Council, Waskesiu Chamber of Commerce, and Parks Canada Agency. A portion of revenues will be donated to the Waskesiu Foundation, and the balance will be used to fund improved recreational programs and facilities in Waskesiu.
Renewing and improving Waskesiu's recreation facilities is an integral part of Waskesiu community's "Vision 2020 and Beyond"
The design of the mini-golf course reflects natural, historic and cultural themes, and the iconic treasures we know and love in and around Waskesiu and Prince Albert National Park.
Imagine stepping up to hole #1 and having to deal with a recognizable rise and a Lobstick tree in the middle! Or navigating your ball around a family of loons or recreated natural challenges like the Waskesiu River riffle, Bagwa-Lily-Clare canoe route or water, snow, beaches and beaver dams.

It''s not too late to donate! Donations are still being accepted to enhance the Waskesiu and Prince Albert National Park themes in the mini-golf course. Plus there's a whole lot more on the Waskesiu Recreation Renewalplan including adding a sport court, fitness park, a picnic shelter, tree carvings and improved pathways with benches. If you haven't yet supported, we'd gladly take a little 'green' out of your wallet!
You did it! It's a hole in one! Thanks so much to each and every donor who answered the fundraising call 'fore' mini golf. Thanks to you, $466,416.38 in cash and pledges was received by August 31, 2017, meaning construction got the green light!
We have so many generous people to thank including our Lead Donor - the Alan Vincent Hadley Logue Memorial Golf Tournament.
Alan Vincent Hadley Logue was a natural athlete and loved activities and sports of every kind, including golf. Alan was well known for his love of people – sharing a laugh and bringing light to all those around him. He could be seen puttering around Waskesiu in his van nicknamed ‘Little Al’ seeking out new adventure at every corner.
Alan’s journey of 22 years took an unexpected turn when he was diagnosed in May 2011 with Leukemia. Alan’s courage and optimism never left him as he faced treatment and hospitalization, though his time in this life came to an end on February 10, 2012.
In honour of Alan’s incredible spirit, his love of all physical activity, and his passion for people, we’re proud to introduce “Little AL’s Mini Golf” opening this summer. Many thanks to the incredible tournament participants, supporters and fine folks of the Alan Vincent Hadley Logue Memorial Golf Tournament for their generosity and dedication to the Waskesiu community.
Site preparation began in fall and continues this spring. Check out our photo gallery! Completed work includes:
Drainage swales on all four sides and drainage berm
Shape of Waskesiu Lake dug and lined
Site prepped and packed for approximately half the putting surfaces
Major custom components are manufactured and in Waskesiu
The starter shack, modelled after Grey Owl's Cabin will be an iconic beginning to your golf game at Little AL's Mini Golf. We can't wait for you to see it!
