The Cottonwood Golf and Country Club is a beautiful course in a natural setting with easy access from Calgary. It takes advantage of the rolling hills on Calgary’s outskirts and offers plenty of challenging golf terrain and beautiful treed views.
Learn to golf
The club’s teaching academy offers 16 driving range stalls, a grassy teaching area separate from the rest of the course and large putting greens with bunkers to practice on. There’s also the “Swing Solutions” computer to help you sort out all the issues with your swing. You can opt for one on one private lessons, group lessons for you and some friends or co-workers and junior lessons for the kids. There are also more specific programs like the “Swing Solution” lessons that analyze your swing and give you drills to correct it. There’s also the personal coaching program that extends over the whole golf season. This will help you improve all the aspects of your game. If you want a more “hands-on” approach, they offer a playing lesson out on the course.
A tranquil setting
This course also offers attractive facilities and full catering services for any function you might need to host in a tranquil setting. They can provide their barbecue centre to hold everything from a wedding reception to a corporate retreat. Their professional chef and catering staff can provide delicious, high-quality meals that are customized to your needs. They also offer baseball diamonds, beach volleyball courts and fly-fishing on the Bow River.
