The creek rises at Little Sarsfield Lake in geographic Bompas Township. It then flows north into Ellis Lake, then into Gould Lake, which straddles the border with geographic Lee Township, then into Sarsfield Lake. It takes in the left tributary Tomwool Creek, turns northeast, and reaches its mouth at Meyers Lake, on Woollings Creek, near the border with Cochrane District.
