As recommended by health officials, if you choose to participate in activities outside of your home, please adhere to COVID-19 health and safety measures, including proper physical distancing, mask-wearing, and frequent handwashing. If you are sick, please stay home.

This year’s golf season has begun in Calgary, with select courses now open for the season.

As the tightening of public health measures leads to closures around the city, looking forward to tee time is a great way to safely take advantage of facilities that remain open.

The 18-hole and par three courses at McCall Lake Golf Course opened earlier this week, and the Shaganappi Point 18-hole golf course joined the roster on Thursday.

To further this good news, two additional courses will be opening on Monday, April 12.

Tee times can be now be booked for the Maple Ridge 18-hole and Shaganappi Valley 9-hole courses, for time slots beginning Monday.

“The City is very excited to reopen our golf courses for the year,” says Greg Steinraths, Regional Operations Manager with Calgary Recreation. “We know how anxious many Calgarians have been to get back out on the links this year.”

“We’re pleased we can provide another safe and healthy way to be active through the warmer months.”

The seasonal reopening of these Calgary golf courses has been done with safety top of mind, and measures have been put in place to ensure operations are in alignment with the Alberta government’s mandate.

These measures include allowing only pre-booked play, no club rentals, restrictions on group size and gatherings, and limits on amenities such as power carts and ball washing stands. Driving ranges are not open at this time.

The City says that their other golf courses will reopen based on weather, course conditions, and in alignment with public health orders.
