Calgary Golf & Country Club

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1897

Calgary Golf & Country Club is home to a championship golf course that ranks with some of the best in Canada. Although the Club modified Willie Park Jr's 1922 layout over the years, his design has always provided the fundamental underpinning for the course. In 2007 a restoration project returned the course to Park's classic style.

This tree-lined parkland layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. On several occasions the holes are played close to or directly alongside the Elbow River.

Limited access: this private course is generally playable only by members and their guests.
