Pheasant Hills was a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of the province of Saskatchewan, Canada, centered just north of the town of Grenfell. This district was one of 25 created before the 1st Saskatchewan general election in 1905.

Originally named "Grenfell", this constituency was renamed Pheasant Hills in 1908, after a range of hills north of the Qu'Appelle River valley near Grenfell, Saskatchewan. The district was abolished before the 9th Saskatchewan general election in 1938.

It is now part of the constituencies of Moosomin, Last Mountain-Touchwood, and Melville-Saltcoats.
