Calgary Wiki

The Sirocco Golf Club is a semi-private golf course located along Calgary's southern city limits. The course opened in 2005 and the clubhouse opened in time for the 2008 golf season. The clubhouse offers a true country club atmosphere and provides a panoramic view of the course.

The course is located about four km south of Spruce Meadows on Spruce Meadows Way. The driveway to the course is winding and twisty.

The course is a par 72 and stretches to over 7100 yards from the tips. The course offers four tee boxes per hole. The club was one of the first in the Calgary area to offer "blended" tee box combinations with RCGA ratings, consisting of playing nine holes from one tee box and the other nine from one tee box forward. As of 2019, most major courses in Calgary and area offer at least one blended tee box combination.

The top handicap hole on the course is the sixth, which stretches to 403 yards from the tips. The drive is key on this hole with marsh on the right and woods on the left. The cart path on this hole elevates over a rock-cropped wall. The tenth hole, while short for a par four, features a very elevated green.

The setting and surroundings for this course provides a country feeling, which is unique for a course near a metropolitan area.

The club is currently limiting its membership roll to 200 members. There is a clause in the club constitution that would allow the members to vote to change Sirocco to a private club. However it is not likely to turn private in the foreseeable future.
