Alberta Golf Destinations

  • Calgary

    Alberta's largest city is famous for the Calgary Stampede, a medley of midway rides, rodeo, country music and line-dancing, beer-drinking bashes. Ironically, the 10 days of what's called the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth each July might be the easiest time to score a tee-time in the Stampede City because everybody else has temporarily gone Wild West. In 2011, CNN listed the Stampede, which attracts 250,000 visitors a year, as one of the top five parties in the world.

  • Edmonton

    Alberta's capital city is best known for West Edmonton Mall, the largest shopping centre in North America. At 5.3 million square feet square feet, "The Mall" -- as its simply known around these parts -- is home to more than 800 stores, about 100 restaurants and watering holes, a pair of movie theaters, two hotels, an amusement park, a waterslide park, a shooting range, a sea-lion show and an underground aquarium.

    Edmonton Garrison Memorial Golf & Curling Club is centrally located within 15 minutes of the Edmonton Area, St. Albert, Morinville, and Cardiff. It first opened as a nine-hole course in the 1950s. Since the second nine wasn't added until 1996, there is a distinct difference between the front and back nine that makes it feel like you're getting two golf courses in one.
