The “Fairways at Delacour”

The Fairways at Delacour – Residential Development Plan

In 2003 the ‘Canal at Delacour Golf Club’ was approved by the Municipal District of Rocky View and the course officially opened for play in 2005.

Since that time the course has received such prestigious honors as being nominated as one of the best new golf courses in Canada and is recognized by Calgary area golfers as one of the best golf courses in the Calgary region.

Now that the vision of the golf course has been achieved, the introduction of the ‘FAIRWAYS AT DELACOUR’ residential development surrounding the course is the next step.
