The Calgary Golf and Country Club’s 18 hole course is the oldest private course still in play in Alberta. Established in 1897, the Club bought land on an isolated bend of the Elbow River in 1909 and began play in 1911.The foundation for today’s course was laid out by the Scottish designer Willlie Park, Jr. in 1922 and restored to his classic standard in a 2005 – 2007 major renovation.
