In 2014, Stephanie and Terry Carter moved to Grande Prairie from Corner Brook, NL.
Having not yet explored the Peace Region, they booked the Ultimate Golf Staycation Package for only $218 (includes hotel, golf, dinner and theatre passes for 2).

My husband and I and our two children moved to Grande Prairie, AB in 2014 from Corner Brook, NL. It was just after our big move that the economy slowed down and we were in a recession! We jokingly say that we broke Alberta. Fast forward a year and things are looking up so we decided to explore the Peace Region and get to know the place we now call home. I was on Facebook and a friend posted the Mighty Peace Tourism Staycation package. It sounded amazing and exceptionally well priced. I booked online and confirmed with both the golf course and hotel and our adventure began.
Being from Newfoundland mountains are important to us and Peace River delivered. Gorgeous scenery surrounded us as we made our way to the Best Western Hotel where we were greeted with the kindest staff! We checked in and were given our package deal which included 9 holes of golf, 2 gift certificates to Mr. Mikes, and 2 free movie passes! I had never played golf before so this was a treat for me and off we went.
Bill was the man! He greeted us at the Peace River Golf Club and, as I had spoken to him several times on the phone, while he answered my numerous questions he said, “Hello Stephanie” as we walked in! I felt special!
The golf course was lovely and the highlight for me was the golf cart that my husband so graciously let me drive! LOL! The weather cooperated and we had a lovely afternoon. A drink in the club house followed and, again, the staff was great and friendly!
After our day of golfing we headed back to the hotel to freshen up and change, and we went to Supper at Mr. Mikes, which was conveniently located next to the hotel. We had a fantastic meal! Again, friendly service!Later that evening we went exploring the town of Peace River and found it to be so charming! The houses were nestled in the mountains with a majestic view of the river below! It was breathtaking and felt like home!
The next day we went to the local museum and had a tour of the facilities with a friendly young girl who explained the various exhibits and answered our questions. We visited the Riverfront Park and the statue of 12 Foot Davis and walked along the trail by the river!
After lunch we settled into our seats in the quaint little viewing room of the River City Cinema to watch a movie!
That evening we headed back home to Grande Prairie with smiles on our faces vowing to come back again! Next visit…horseback riding!
