City golf courses working to reopen safely for 2021 season
The 2021 golf season has begun, with City of Calgary Golf courses beginning to reopen as the weather gets warmer. Three golf courses opened this week, with two more on the way.
- The 18 hole and par three courses at McCall Lake golf course opened this week.
- The Shaganappi Point 18-hole golf course opens today.
- The Maple Ridge 18-hole and Shaganappi Valley 9-hole courses will open on Monday April 12. Tee times can be booked as of today.
The City’s other courses will reopen based on weather, course conditions, and in alignment with public health orders.
Safety has been a key focus of the reopening. The seasonal reopening is in alignment with Provincial direction, and measures have been put in place to help increase safety for players as they golf. These include allowing only pre-booked play, no club rentals, limits on gatherings and amenities use like power carts and ball washing stands. Driving ranges are not open at this time.
“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, and we’re pleased we can provide another safe and healthy way to be active through the warmer months.”
