Course Review and Comments

As far as the golf goes, I think this is pretty much the best value you'll find near Calgary. The course is easily on par with (or better than) the $100 to $110 courses in or near the city, and costs much less.
The service isn't spectacular, but if you're (like me) more interested in the golf than whether or not someone will load your bag onto your cart for you, Water Valley blows the city courses out of the water.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments I have only one small issues with the design of this course: There isn't a single hole on the front nine where I can hit a driver. The fact that the plethora of doglegs makes you focus as much on getting the right distance on your tee shot as the right line, is something that I really like about this course. It's just that it'd be nice if there was at least one grip-it-and-rip-it hole mixed in every now and then.
Anyway, in spite of this, I still really like the design and layout of this course. It's challenging, scenic, and so incredibly relaxing and quiet.
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments Great shape. A few spots where the ground was a little spongy, but given the flooding in the area that subsided a week ago, I think that's pretty forgivable.
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments Not the place to come for super-friendly service in the pro-shop. If you follow their guidelines, you'll be treated just a little better than a nuisance. If not... Well, I guess I would just suggest that you follow the rules. And phone ahead if you have fewer people than you're booked for.
The kiosk staff are always friendly.
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments Very nice driving range on real grass, and long enough that you can hit your driver. The rest of the facilities are average.
Course Overall Rating
