From Wilderness Dream to Golfing Gem: The Story of Water Valley Golf Club
In 1987, amidst Alberta's breathtaking foothills, Brian and Cindy Setter dared to dream. They envisioned a golf course that embraced the serene wilderness, a haven for players seeking both challenge and escape. Thus, Water Valley Golf & Country Club was born, starting as a nine-hole course nestled in the natural splendor.
As golf surged in popularity, so did Water Valley's appeal. The "wilderness feeling" resonated with players hungry for something unique, and soon, expansion became inevitable. In 1994, 9 more holes unfolded, gracefully weaving around the original layout, creating the beloved 18-hole course we know today.
But ambition didn't stop there. Brian and Cindy understood the need for a clubhouse that matched the course's spirit. In 1998, their vision took shape with the stunning new clubhouse, boasting a spacious pro shop and a restaurant with breathtaking views – a testament to their unwavering dedication and love for the game.
For 34 years, Brian and Cindy nurtured Water Valley, crafting a community woven with laughter, friendly competition, and a shared love for the outdoors. Today, under the stewardship of Pat and Jeremy, the journey continues.
The legacy of Water Valley lives on in the recent renovations that breathe new life into the clubhouse, pro shop, and snack shack. New tee boxes, strategic bunkers, and an upgraded driving range whisper of continued commitment to excellence. The future holds promises of further enhancements, ensuring Water Valley remains a must-play in the Calgary area.
