Recreation has been providing golf opportunities for citizens for more than 100 years! Shaganappi Point Golf Course, the second oldest golf course in Calgary, turned 100 in 2015. Thank you to everyone that helped make this celebration so special.
Shaganappi Point Golf Course celebrates a century of providing golf to Calgarians and on July 28 we had a ceremony to acknowledge the golf course's historic relevance which has included use by First Nations, the 1901 Royal Visit King George V and Queen Mary, and the home of the 1988 Winter Olympic Hot Air Balloon Festival.
