I was very pleasantly surprised at just how beautiful this course was. The site lines from the tee boxes, the bunkering and green undulations were very well designed and maintained.

It is a golf course that has two distinctly different 9’s........ The front nine is a Parkland design that follows the bow river and has beautiful large tree lined fairways........very player friendly...... The back nine has great elevation change, water features and demands more precise shotmaking.

Course was in excellent overall condition and was a joy to play

Top 5 of must-plays in Calgary for sure!

Valley Ridge is a nice course but nothing special. Everything about it is average including the staff. Not a great welcome by the staff, both the back shop and pro shop. The course is there to make money and that's how your treated. The range is in tough shape, feels like your warming up in the rough. The course conditions are great especially considering the high number of public tournaments they host. The toughness of the course lies in the greens. Fairways and greens are easy to hit but if your on the wrong level your faced with some tough putts. I think the course itself is great but the staff could use some work. Go inside for a bite and a cold one after your round. Food is good and the beer is cold...... What more could you ask for.
