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 for an early preview of 9 holes with the complete 18 holes opening 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, underwent much-needed renovations in 2018. 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 were 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 is scheduled to re-open May 17, 2019 for an early preview of 9 holes with the complete 18 holes opening later in June.

Until that time, 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.

Hole 18: From the tee, take a moment to enjoy some of the best views on the course, then focus on the task at hand as a challenging final hole awaits. Swing away from this elevated tee as the left-side fairway bunker is generally out of reach for most players. The green lies in close proximity to McCall Lake so aim for the left side of the green to remove the water from play.
