Bow River and its adjacent aquatic arteries join ponds and marshland at Golf Canada Calgary Centre, creating aquatic layouts for the Les Furber–designed, 9-hole, par-3 course and the 18-hole, par-72 all-grass putting course. Hole 9 on the putting course even challenges players with an island green, and those who make it there without getting wet can pretend to be castaways even after the sun has set, thanks to stadium-style lighting.

To gear up for the courses’ myriad challenges, golfers can buckle down at a heated, lighted driving range that ranked in Golf Range Magazine’s 2010 Top 100 Golf Ranges in America. The swingers practice their long game from 52 enclosed tee boxes, aiming at target greens or clouds shaped like flag pins. Nearby, putters take the stage at a short-game practice area with a 4,000-square-foot putting green, a 3,500-square-foot pitching and chipping green, and greenside and fairway practice bunkers. Golfers can also hone their game in high-definition golf simulators, which unlock the fairways of legendary courses such as Pebble Beach and Pinehurst, or enroll in lessons with PGA of Canada pros led by award-winning instructor Jay Myren.

After four years of tending to the bees on his family's farm, Gerald Côté decided to turn his lifelong passion for dance into a career. He began trotting across the globe—from Nashville, Tennessee, to Stockholm, Sweden—to participate in dance competitions, and he attained his first UCWDC world title in 2006. That same year, Gerald combined his impressive dance resumé with his business administration degree and opened a freelance dance-instruction company called DancEnergy. After a successful first few years of offering on-site lessons and winning impromptu dance-offs, Gerald renovated a massive 8,200-square-foot warehouse into the company's official studio.

Since converting the warehouse in 2009, Gerald has assembled a talented team of dance instructors who specialize in salsa, ballroom, Latin, swing, and country. Students of all skill levels may sign up for 6- or 12-week group classes or just come by on a whim for Friday-night drop-in classes and practice parties.

DancEnergy's studio houses three separate ballrooms to accommodate multiple classes at once, as well as changing rooms where pupils can garb themselves with required non-rubber shoes and optional sequined gloves.

In 1988, the top of the Calgary Tower was on fire. Nobody panicked, though, and no one tried to put out the flames. If they had, and succeeded, it would have been to the disappointment of athletes and spectators the world over, because that flame burned in honour of Canada’s first Winter Olympic Games. At 191 metres above the city, the light that fire produced—flickering from a gas-fired cauldron—served to unite the city around the games, to honour the spirit of sportsmanship, and to safeguard the event from Mothra attacks.

Today, visitors can see the city from just below where that torch burned. After a 63-second elevator ride to the top, guests can explore the observation deck, take a complimentary tour, and peer from high-powered binoculars at the Rocky Mountains, foothills, and prairies. Then they can step out onto the glass floor and stare down at the Olympic Plaza, the Glenbow Museum, and the bald spots on park monuments.

Yet the tower’s height isn’t its only draw. From the ground up, it strives to showcase the best of the city. At the base, the visitor information centre furnishes newcomers with city guides that point to popular attractions, and at 155 metres, the elegant Sky 360 restaurant fans romantic sparks as it completes its 360-degree rotation every hour.

Callaway goes beyond minting high-performance golf clubs and gear—it actively pursues new technologies to ensure its products are of the highest quality, and that golfers are selecting the right equipment to match their playing style. At Callaway Golf Learning & Fitting Centre, golf experts employ the Callaway performance-analysis system, which combines computer analysis and high-speed digital photography to break down a player’s swing, a technology that has helped Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els. Data recorded during these swing sessions includes club-head speed, angle of attack, and launch angle. This information allows the professionals to generate personal specifications for custom clubs or elective surgery to attach a hybrid club to the client's right arm.

At the end of a session, clients take home a personalized booklet of the swing photos. Later, they can go online to review their swing by looking at a full-motion video or freeze frames, which can reveal key details about how post-swing pirouettes interfered with swing mechanics.

Part of the proceeds from each club-fitting session benefit the Jennifer Ashleigh Children’s Charity, which helps families with the expenses surrounding a child’s chronic illness.

Eaglequest Coquitlam is a haven for golf enthusiasts of all stripes and sizes; it features a 9-hole golf course, state-of-the-art practice facilities, and an 18-hole mini-golf course. With holes that range from 77 to 147 yards, the par 27 golf course challenges short-game skills and grants golfers ample time to discipline misbehaving drivers by sending them to timeout in their head covers. The 76-stall driving range features a synthetic landing area with realistic targets, and a learning academy helmed by PGA of Canada instructors can help golfers further improve their swings. For pint-sized practice, players can putt their way through the 18-hole mini-golf course designed to be both charming and challenging by incorporating large rocks, pieces of wood, and an intersecting brook. The golf centre also houses a 9,000-square-foot clubhouse with a café, pro shop, and resident hobbit that whittles wooden spoons into sand wedges.

Course at a Glance:
