The Canal At Delacour is a links style golf course located about ten miles east of Calgary on Country Hills Boulevard, which becomes a provincial secondary highway after city limits. It is located in the hamlet of Delacour. If you are heading eastbound, turn right just after the railway crossing.
The course plays about 7100 yards from the tips. This course features fairways that allow the ball to run. However the greens resemble potato chips with several sections, swales or tiers on each green. This is probably the most difficult course in Calgary with respect to lag putts.
The course provides a scenic downhill opening hole. The eighth hole is a tricky hole with a green guarded by a nasty pot bunker in the front - there are ridges in the front that will kick the ball to this trap. Number seventeen is the shortest par four on the course at 340 yards from the tips. But the green is guarded by both sand and water and the putting surface has four sections, forcing an accurate chip.
The fairway bunkers provide good target lines for your drives on the par fours and par fives.
This course was the first in the Calgary area to utilize a hybrid golf hole cup on their greens. The course now uses Par Aide Everwhite cups, a common fixture on most courses in the city.
