The 18-hole championship golf course is named after PGA Tour champion Phil Mickelson and is the first Canadian course to bear his name.

The course takes place at Harmony, a community rich in Bordeaux Developments and Qualico Communities facilities west of Calgary. Mickelson National opened in 2020 and the new facility, due for completion in 2023, will be a clubhouse for members and a social center for Harmony residents.

“We believe that a clubhouse should be a gathering place and an extension of people’s homes. As a private club, we want people to feel welcome and have a great atmosphere, ”said Barry Ehlert, CEO of Windmill Golf Group, operators of Mickelson National.

The main level of the clubhouse will feature an open kitchen, a 400-seat dining room with private banquet rooms and a wraparound outdoor patio. There will be a large south facing entrance and nothing but glass on the north side so that guests can enjoy the panoramic views of the golf course, mountains and the Bow River Valley.

The clubhouse will have changing rooms for men and women, storage space and a pro shop.

The Mickelson Pavilion was designed by PHX Architecture of Phoenix, Arizona, in association with design partner, DMA Architecture and Design of Calgary.

The design spanned 14 years with ideas and inspiration gathered from over 50 clubs across North America.

“It will be an absolutely spectacular installation. It will probably be one of the most spectacular clubs in the whole country, ”said Ehlert.

All Harmony residents, whether they play golf or not, are social members of the Mickelson Golf Club through their annual dues to the Home Owner’s Association.

Golf is one of Harmony’s many amenities, with a recreational lake and beach, skate park, pumping track, climbing wall, Ninja course, and beach volleyball court.

An off-leash dog park also opened in 2021, with another playground, festival area, hockey rinks and a community garden over the next 12 months.
