Marvel Rapids Golf Course

About
Marvel Rapids is situated on rolling meadows and mature woodlands. Resplendent in towering pines, this beautiful course provides variety and challenge in each of its nine holes. Eels Creek wends its way through the course en route to Stoney Lake and encompasses a series of rapids cascading over pre-cambrian outcroppings. The creek and its rapids make this a splendid golfing experience.
Duration: 2-3 hours

This is a beautiful course with challenging holes and beautiful scenery, especially if you go in the fall. It's a bit of a drive for me, but we'll worth it!

This 9 hole beauty is cut out of the Canadian bush along side Eels Creek. It has 7 holes with significant water play and every hole requires straight shots, no slices and hooks or you ball is gone. Nice club house and good sandwiches and beer when you finish. Nice walking course but 9 will be enough as the terrain is challenging. Wear bug spray!!

This is a really nice little golf course. There are minimal amenities but the sandwiches are good. Driving range is up a steep hill but quite fun.

Marvel Rapids has very narrow fairways at points, which makes it a challenging 9-hole golf course. It's where I learned to play golf and the main thing it taught me is that shorter shots with control are key to getting around this one!

One of the common criticisms I hear about the course is that there are some trees in awkward spots, but overall I feel that that gives this course some extra character.

The price is also quite reasonable for a 9-hole or 18-hole (2x around the 9-hole) course.

Marvel Rapids is a beautiful 9 hole course carved out of the Canadian Shield. It meanders through the woods while criss-crossing Eels Creek several times making it enjoyable, yet challenging to play. Lots of change of elevation and very scenic holes.

Don't hit too far left, right, short or long or you'll end up losing another ball. But it will be the most fun you'll have sending little white objects deep into the heart of cottage country.

My only nit-pick is that the cart paths are quite rough.

I've played it several times, and will be back at least a couple of times a year.

One of the most picturesque golf courses I've ever played. Challenging and fun course played back and fourth over Eels Creek. Overall a great course close to cottage country.
