Shaganappi Point Golf Course
Gliding over the greens
Cross-country skiers in Calgary don’t have to head to the mountains to glide through the snow: They just have to find the nearest city golf course. Throughout the winter, volunteers maintain cross-country ski tracks at two courses in the center of the city: Shaganappi Point Golf Course south of the Bow River, which overlooks the Calgary skyline, and Confederation Park Golf Course in the north. From kids learning how to work their equipment to veteran Nordic skiers, you'll see everyone out enjoying a sunny Saturday on the golf course—in the middle of winter.
