On the edge of the Rockies and just a few minutes from the beautiful Calgary limits, The Links of GlenEagles invites golfers into a serenely beautiful course that is second to none for Calgary golf courses.

Aside from the breathtaking vistas that are around every corner, the design, architecture, and playability of the greens is challenging and exciting to compete on.
The Links of GlenEagles has become one of the best places to golf in Canada because of their commitment to the sport and those that are passionate about it. In the off-season, they take the time and resources to go over their facility and better it in as many ways as they can. With the help of their valued guests, valuable feedback has been put into action through projects and continual maintenance to make the experience new and refreshing each time that you come. Their aim for every visitor is that they come, have a great time, and leave with their sights set on coming back ASAP.
At The Links of GlenEagles you will find a pristine course – lush green fairways, almost 100 bunkers filled with the whitest of sand and exciting changes in elevation. Designer Les Furber carved this course into the rugged foothills just as they run up to the Rocky Mountains. Portions of the course run along a cliff some 200 feet above the Bow River Valley. He used the natural features of the site to create an unparalleled golfing adventure. This championship length par-72 has five par-5s and five par-3s. There are five sets of tees here to test your golfing skills.
Every hole here is a great experience, according to Slade King, director of golf and head professional at The Links of GlenEagles.
Your day will begin on a dogleg right par-4 (384 yards from the back tees and 252 from the forward) that offers some challenging shots over water. From most of the tee boxes, you’ll be firing over a creek to a generous but elevated fairway. You can use driver but less club is probably better off the tee. To succeed on this hole, you need to land far enough along on the fairway to see where you’re going next. Your approach shot takes you over a lake with a waterfall into a little bowl of a green. Those with a lot of courage may want to try to cross an assortment of dangers to get on or near the green with the first shot. Watch out for a large waste bunker on the right-hand side; you may have to cross it if you try to drive the green.
Their challenging golf course demands the best out of you. So take time to warm up on their unusual 180-yard aqua range before you play a round. You’ll be hitting floating balls into one of their sparkling ponds.
Short game skills are also crucial for scoring well at GlenEagles. They have a putting green where you can roll your ball and find out how the greens are set up at the course. They also have a chipping green equipped with a bunker so you can practice your sand saves.
The great part about the practice areas is that all balls and use of the facilities are included in the price of your round. No extra charge!
