Trochu is a small town in central Alberta with a population of just under 1,100. The town is named for Armand Trochu, the settler who founded the St. Anne Ranch Trading Company on the present site of the town in 1903. The main industry here is agriculture and the oil/gas industry, BUT they have an interesting attraction - the Golf and Country Club in Trochu hosts... wait for it... the World's Biggest Golf Tee. Yes, that's right - they have a 40 foot (12 m) golfing tee. Sounds weird I know, but we had to pass through Trochu to have lunch before going on to Red Deer, so we decided to check it out.
