Fox Hollow is a golf complex located west of Deerfoot Trail between 16th Avenue NE and 32nd Avenue NE. Access to the course is just west of Deerfoot on 32nd Avenue.

The golf course is a par 71 and plays to about 6550 yards from the blue tees. The front nine is known for its compact layout featuring back-and-forth play through the first eight holes. It has previously been criticized for poor safety. The fairways on the first seven holes are quite narrow and missed shots often end up on one of the other fairways. The back nine - which was the first nine holes of the course - has a more scenic and spread-out routing where Nose Creek comes into play on four holes.

The signature hole is the 14th - a dramatic par five playing 525 yards from the blue tees. The green is a near-island green. It would take two bold shots to reach this green in two. Recent renovation work has made the water hazard in front of this green a beautiful dam that runs off into Nose Creek.

The facility includes a golf dome which is operated by EagleQuest Golf, along with a chipping range and two practice greens. The clubhouse includes Mulligan's Restaurant.

The golf course is separated from the clubhouse and practice areas by the CP Rail main line to Edmonton. Access to the course is via a tunnel under the tracks.

Fox Hollow is privately operated, but operates under an agreement with the City of Calgary such that its rates are similar to the rates charged at the city-operated courses. The course operates several leagues and hosts many corporate tournaments every year.

Fox Hollow is also known for its liberal operating schedule. The course has operated during winter months on provisional greens when the city has had a prolonged snow-free period. It is also one of the first courses in the city to open on regulation greens and tees.
