Just over 100 yards out from the first tee sits the famous Lobstick tree. Arguably one of the most famous trees in western Canada, the Lobstick is the symbol of the tradition and history of the Waskesiu Golf Course, so much so that our world famous match-play event is named in its honour.
The annual Lobstick Invitational at Waskesiu is the largest match play event in North America, attracting more than 700 golfers from across the continent to one of the four Lobstick tournaments: Juniors', Men's, Women's and Senior Men’s. The Open Division of the men’s tournament consistently attracts top amateur and CPGA professionals from Saskatchewan and beyond.
The tournament, a summer tradition in Saskatchewan for more than 70 years, was named after the famous Lobstick tree located in the middle of the fairway off the first tee. The Cree word lobstick refers to an evergreen tree that's had its branches cut off to the mid-way point to act as a trail marker.
The Lobstick Tournaments are open to players of all skill levels and offer participants the thrill of friendly competition. Qualifying rounds are held in all tournaments to determine equitable flighting for the match play and stroke play components of the events.
Registrations for events can be made by calling the Pro Shop at 306-663-5300 (April 15-September 30) or 306-663-5301 (October 1-April 14).
Whether you are participating in your first Lobstick, or are a long time participant, we are confident that you will enjoy the beauty that surrounds you in Waskesiu and the wonderful people you will meet.
Note: Policy for members who have yearly cart privileges. The policy going forward is that for Lobstick tournaments, the member is only entitled to one seat. Any person who does not have golf cart privileges will have to pay for his/her seat for the round.
Jr Lobstick Golf Scholarship
The Waskesiu Golf Course is very pleased to announce that they have established the “Waskesiu Golf Course Scholarship for Junior Golf”. The initial seed money for this scholarship has come from the 75th Anniversary celebrations raffle and silent auction supported by businesses in Waskesiu, Prince Albert and Saskatoon. The purpose of the scholarship is to recognize and promote academics and community involvement among participants of the Jr. Lobsticks. Funding for the scholarship comes from annual donations, one time donations and various raffles, draws and tournaments.
The scholarship will be open to entering or continuing students pursuing undergraduate or graduate studies in any program at any post secondary institution and who are registered to play in the forthcoming Jr. Lobstick tournament at Waskesiu Golf Course. The scholarship consists of up to four awards annually with a value of $500. Selection is based on registration paid in full for the Jr. Lobstick, academics, and commitment to volunteerism in their local community.
