If you love to golf, you already know it’s a great form of exercise and can provide wonderful mental health benefits. That’s why we’re very excited to have the stunning Blue Devil golf course border the north side of Wolf Willow! We chatted with Blue Devil owner Scott Atkinson to learn more about the renowned golf course in south Calgary.
First, can you tell me a bit about Blue Devil golf club? And its history and legacy in this part of Calgary?
The Blue Devil opened in the summer of 2012, designed by incredible golf architects, Gary Browning and Wade Horrocks. Their philosophy when creating Blue Devil was “Give the Devil his Due.” We wanted to create a course that people want to play again and again, challenging enough to keep you wanting more, but not so much that you leave discouraged.
Beautifully located in the river valley of south Calgary, Blue Devil offers plenty of landing room with its generous fairways and surprisingly vast roll of the land. Strategic water hazards and dynamic bunkers accompany the layout to keep the challenge for golfers alive at every turn. In addition to the big 18-hole Blue Devil course, we have the 9-hole Lil Devil short course. Lil Devil was created with fun in mind, perfect for beginner golfers, families, juniors, or to practice your short game!
How many members do you have there? What can you say about the golfing community you have created in the area?
The golfing community we have created in the area is quite dynamic! We have 52 Platinum share members at Blue Devil, and many people opting for Annual Membership options for both Blue Devil and Lil Devil courses. We have created a place where people love to come to have fun, challenge themselves on the Blue Devil course, or have a wonderful day outdoors on the Lil Devil course with your family! We want Blue Devil to feel like home to everyone that visits us (members or not!) and that is the community we are trying to build—everyone is welcome!
For Wolf Willow, what does it mean to have Blue Devil golf club within the community? And vice versa, what does the community growth mean to Blue Devil?
For residents of Wolf Willow, having Blue Devil in the community means you have another place to call home! Completely open to the public, we are here to bring the community together and provide a safe and fun place to enjoy golf and the outdoors. For us, the community growth is an incredible opportunity to welcome more Calgarians to our course and provide them with a safe place where they can get outside, exercise, enjoy the sunshine, and connect with other community members, at a safe distance!
Need a night out? Visit the King & Devil Tap & Grill.
Whether you’ve just finished a round or two of golf, are getting ready to hit the course, or just want to enjoy a night out, head on over to the Blue Devil’s clubhouse for a drink or meal at King & Devil Tap & Grill. The patio overlooks the 18th hole with Fish Creek Park as the backdrop.
Blue Devil is just one of the many surrounding amenities close to Wolf Willow. Nearby retail shops, everyday essentials and other recreational opportunities await our residents.
