HOT DEAL RIVER SPIRIT GOLF

The course was in excellent shape. Greens very fast, but ridiculous pin placements. Staff friendly at check in and restaurant. Food was decent.

Just be sure about Golfnow Hot Deals, there are no refunds or rescheduling. Be sure your partner pay up otherwise you could be holding the bag on the green fees.

This is one of our favourite golf courses in Calgary

We love playing at River Spirit. The country setting is beautiful and the course is always in good shape. The staff is friendly and always helpful. The green fees are very reasonable for the quality of the golf course.

Great day

Really enjoyed the day. We played in 3 hours 15 minutes. It felt like we had the course to ourselves. We played Cattails/Spirit nines. Good layout, good condition. Only bad comment, Fix Your Ball Marks People!!! I fixed 4 or 5 on every green. Nice friendly staff.

Nice layout but needs improvement

I arrived 45 minutes before my HOT DEALS Prepaid tee time. Staff in the pro shop wanted to charge me for a cart. Looked through my confirmation email and there is no indication that cart was included. Opened the app on my phone to show all hot deals include a cart. They finally relented and gave me a chit for a cart. Got to the cart to load my clubs and it was filthy. Others were the same. They sit outside all the time and due to recent rain and mud cart paths they are covered in mud. Hooked up with a threesome at the first tee. They also had an issue in the pro shop as they had booked to play 9 holes and the pro shop guy was unhappy that they were not playing 18 due to lost revenue.

Once we teed off things got better. Course layout is nice but cart paths are mud and gravel with occasional patches of pavement. Greens had a lot of ball marks. Finished the front nine in 2 hours and my threesome dropped out. Tow fellows joined me for the back nine and we played quickly finishing my total round in 4 hour 11 minutes.

This course has great potential if they train the pro shop staff a bit better and improve the access road, gravel parking lot and cart paths. I won't rush back to play again this year.

Great pace. Best only if on sale.

I liked the course. Forgiving, did not use driver to often. Got away with 3 hybrid and six iron. Green plays true and sleek, getting use to took some time defensive . 4hrs three players. I will play again if it’s on sale for $51.00 . First experience was alright used the cart well driving up measureing and spot landing.

Great course!

The course was in great shape. I arrived early to hit some balls and was able to get out before my scheduled tee time. The track had a bit of everything, some Narrow gaps, strategically placed bunkers and ‘risk/reward’ holes. Although there were some hills, the course was pretty easy to walk. I play just before 8 AM on a Tuesday and finished in just over three hours for 18 holes. Pace of play was awesome

Played the Cattails Course and it is very challenging. Must keep the ball on the fairway or consider the ball lost. The rough is VERY ROUGH and grass is very thick and high. No chance to retrieve any ball in the rough. The Spirit Course is much more fun to play being a little more open and and more foregiving.

Golf is very good cart paths and road not so much

The course is a great layout and in great shape. Greens are pretty good.

The cart paths and entrance road are desperately in need of some work.

Staff were all fantastic which more than makes up for the cart paths.

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.

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.
