The banks of the Bow River offer some of the most spectacular scenery in southern Alberta, and it is in this inspired setting that is home to Speargrass Golf Course. Eighteen championship holes wind their way through the prairie, framed by native brush, trees, shrubs and grasses.
Since its opening in 2003, Speargrass Golf Course has won accolades and acclaim as one of the top public courses in Alberta. Designed with vision by Gary Browning, the 6698 yard par 72 course offers guests of all abilities a challenging and highly playable experience. Only 30 minutes southeast of Calgary, Speargrass Golf Course has been recognized for its deceptively generous fairways and greens framed by strategically placed sand traps and water hazards. Speargrass offers an impeccably manicured links-style course with a choice of six teeing grounds on all holes. Yardage ranges from 4900 to 6700 yards, with slope ratings from 116 from the forward tees to a conservative 129 from the black tees.
One of the course’s most unique features is that both the front and back nines each have 3 par threes, 3 par fours and 3 par fives. A challenging layout that offers a balance of comfort and complexity.
