This semi-private, 18-hole course, just 25 minutes east of Calgary, might be one of the best-kept secrets in Alberta. Calgarians are accustomed to courses nestled in the spectacular scenery of the foothills or alongside the Rocky Mountains. Some might even say we are spoiled by our surroundings, but punished by our short golfing season. Few people think about venturing off the beaten path to explore courses east of Calgary, but one trip to Strathmore Golf Club and you’ll soon be back for another round.
You won't find mountains or rolling foothills at Strathmore, but what this track lacks in elevated status, it makes up for with water. An irrigation canal cuts through the course separating the front nine from the back nine and thanks to the course's original builder, the Canadian Pacific Railway, sandstone gives the course a picturesque presence. Aside from the canal, the course boasts several lakes which attract wildlife habitat and ensure a rich green layout all season. Designers took advantage of this aquatic layout in designing the 377-yard, par 4, fifth hole which dog-legs left to a full island green. The front nine is the more difficult of the two, but be careful after you make the turn, several hazards are waiting on the back. The par 3 eighteenth ranks among the tougher finishing holes of the course as it requires a long iron, or fairway wood, from even the longest hitters.
