Water Valley Golf & Country Club was designed and developed by Brian Setter. In August 1987, Brian and his wife, Cindy officially opened Water Valley Golf & Country Club as a 9 hole golf course. In Winter 1988 the original Clubhouse was built.
Within a few seasons, it became evident that the wilderness feeling at Water Valley was an excellent draw for golfers. As golf became a way of life in Alberta, expanding the course to 18 holes was necessary.
Course expansion started in 1993, the project was completed in 1994 and in Spring 1995 Water Valley Golf & Country Club opened as a 18 hole golf course. The new nine (1995) plays first and is wrapped around the original nine (1987). Continuous upgrades since have kept the course a must play in the Calgary area.
After the expansion to 18 holes, it became evident that a larger Clubhouse would be needed. In 1998 construction on our new Clubhouse began, facilitating a much larger Pro Shop and a full restaurant with patio and deck upstairs. Care was taken to move the original Clubhouse and incorporate it into the new design. The facility takes advantage of the views that initially inspired the course.
Brian and Cindy operated Water Valley Golf & Country Club for 34 wonderful seasons.
In October 2021 Water Valley Golf & Country Club was purchased by Pat Thomas & Jeremy Dueck. To rebrand and simplify, the name of the golf course has changed to Water Valley Golf Club.
Since taking possession, a full scale renovation of the existing Clubhouse, Pro Shop and Snack Shack is underway. Renovations will be completed by Spring 2022. A new driving range and practice area will also be available for the new season. In Spring 2022 the construction of a new maintenance building will start. There have been many improvements made around the course at the end of last season and there are many future plans for the course in the works.
