Wet weather

Fast pace golf

I came out early Saturday morning and got paired with two members, Dan and Jeff. I had a good time with the guys, played and watched some good golf, under 3h, walking. It was very wet, though. Day before it was pouring whole day plus morning dew, but course hold up very well. Fun 27 holes to play, would recommend it.

Great experience

Played all 27 holes. Exhausted from walking, a couple of hills to deal with. Well worth the visit. 3 nines quite different and challenging in their own ways. Regular golfers will appreciate the layout and nuances of the course.

Two different courses

The Milburn 9 was great for a golfer looking for something different than the normal prairie courses. Lots of trees and elevations. The Cartails 9 was more links type, with scrub. Both in excellent condition but we have had lots of rain.

Slowest round ever

My husband and I played Millburn and Cattails yesterday and it was BRUTALLY slow. We saw a Marshall once and he really didn’t do anything. We waited about 10 mins on average on most holes. Granted we were a two-some and expected to wait occasionally but this was ridiculous.
I’ve played here quite a number of times and have thoroughly enjoyed it (which is the only reason I said I’d recommend it). If yesterday had been my only experience, I would neither recommend it nor return.
Hopefully next round will be better but I’m going to be hard pressed to pick River Spirit over some other area courses for my next few rounds.
You had LOTS of unhappy golfers yesterday River Spirit. With tons of competition for golf dollars close by, you need to address and fix this as you have a great course.

Lovely and challenging course

I went there after finding a good deal in GolfNow. I typically play most of my rounds in an intermediate municipal golf course and found River Spirit much longer and challenging, which is good for a change and practicing more long shots. Course condition was great, although fairways close to the greens seemed to be quite hard.

Nice course, friendly staff, allows dogs on Sunday’s

First of all I just want to comment on how friendly and helpful the staff are. They are certainly a Big part of why a golf course is successful. I like the fact they're are 3 x 9 hole courses which can add a bit of variety when playing there on a regular basis. Luv the fact they allow dogs on Sunday’s cause as a dog owner I luv my dog and I luv to play golf. Price is certainly reasonable. Ok the bad or the odd. The pro shop is on the 2nd floor and the clubhouse is on the main. With the scenery that they have I would of expected an outdoor deck overlooking the 9th holes or facing the mountains, I mean who wouldn’t want to eat a decent meal facing the mountains. No starter or marshal to make sure the pace of play was on time. The area around the carts is a bit chaotic and they need a net between the driving range and the first hole of the spirit course. All in all it was still a pleasant experience, so we’ll be definitely be back

Awesome Course!

First time playing here. Some challenging and beautiful holes. They were preparing for the Alberta open when we were there so there was some maintenance equipment running on a few holes but didn't throw off the experience.

I am very happy that our staff got you on the course. The
relationship with GolfNow and our new Booking System is very new and I trust that they will have the kinks ironed out shortly. Again I am sorry that you had an issue but very pleased you like the course and that staff was helpful.

Thank you for your support!

When I got there to play my round and check in they had no record of me using Golf Now but let me play anyway. Thank God they were kind and let me play. I don't think I will use Golf Now again.

Late Fall Golfing in Calgary!!!!

Considering the date (Oct 27) and the fact we live in Calgary, Alberta the course was in amazing condition. They did their best to keep the leaves off the fairway. Always enjoy playing at River Spirit. Beautiful scenery and the holes just challenging enough. The course offers 27 holes and 18 were open. Booked a Hot Deal and the proshop let us play 27 holes. Great day! Excited to golf at River Spirit again next season.
