Laid out on the fringes of Okotoks, the course at D’Arcy Ranch Golf Club was established by oilman Jerry D’Arcy, former president of the Calgary Stampede, with holes laid out on the site of an old racetrack and quarter-horse operation.
"Worthy of a full day out"
Falls into the Gem category. Not many would tell you to go out of you way to play it, but it is an unbelievable value. I live in the areal, I have a golf membership elsewhere, and this is the golf course I make sure I get out to play at least once a year. A collection of really good golf holes that will challenge you with some really cool par 3s and a couple of great risk/reward par 5s (I generally fall into the risk side). It challenges golfers of all skill levels.
