18-Hole Course Renovation

Are you looking for the latest information about this project? Check out our renovation updates. Note: McCall Lake 18 is scheduled to re-open May 17, 2019 on 9 holes with the full 18 holes to open later in June.

Project overview

The 18-hole golf course at McCall Lake, open since 1981 and accommodating over 31,000 rounds of golf per year, will undergo much-needed renovations during the 2018 season. Renovations to the facility will improve playability, safety, accessibility and player experience, and will ensure the course's operation into the future. Upgrades to the facility have been thoughtfully considered, with input from consultants, management, and players. The renovations will ensure a quicker pace of play, while also adding a stroke to par, enhancing the player experience.

The $6.7 million project is funded by the Government of Alberta's Municipal Sustainment Initiative, through The City's Sport Facility Renewal (SFR) fund.

Project timing and impact

The ambitious project is on track and will be completed in one season, with an estimated open date in late Spring 2019, to ensure that Calgarians can return to play as quickly as possible.

The main course will not be open during this time; however, the Par 3 course and driving range will be fully open during this time. The South Practice Green, Trap, and pitching area will also be available for use.

Frequent Player cards, as well as youth packs and golf-12-packs, can be used on the par 3 course, or at all other City of Calgary golf courses.


Course upgrades:

Upgrades to the facility are on track and will include:

  • Addition of multiple tees at all holes, which will help the course appeal to a broad range of gofers of all skill levels
  • Modification or relocation of traps and hazards, providing ease of play or challenge depending on the level of skill
  • Adding a stroke to par on hole 5 - course total will be par 71
  • Raising fairways and greens on holes 7, 8, 9 and 18 to mitigate flooding and improve playability
  • New tree planting to screen holes 2, 3, 11 and 15
  • Pathway upgrades
  • Drainage repairs throughout the course
  • Recladding of the clubhouse, maintenance and pump house buildings
