Calgary Horseshoe Club

The Calgary Horseshoe Club formed in the 70's with the amalgamation of the Forest Lawn Legion and the Forest Lawn Night Owls. With the formation of the club, it recognized that there was a real need for a large dedicated facility specifically for horseshoe pitching, hence the Calgary Horseshoe Club. Mayor Ralph Klein turned the first sod in 1985, and using mostly volunteer labour and donated materials, the building hosted the Canadian Horseshoe Pitching Championship in 1988.

Over the years, the Calgary Horseshoe Club has seen many changes and improvements. It continues to grow and develop this wonderful sport of horseshoes.

Today, the Calgary Horseshoe Club has the privilege of serving the city of Calgary with the very best, state-of-the-art, facility capable of hosting meetings, parties, and festivals. Once every six years, the Calgary Horseshoe Centre hosts two large national and regional tournaments inviting horseshoe pitchers from around Canada to enjoy our city. We have the necessary infrastructure to make events memorable and enjoyable.

The Club has hosted the Canadian Horseshoe Pitching Championship tournament in 1988, 1992, 1996, 2002, 2008, and 2014 and looks forward to 2020.

Calgary has had some of the best pitchers in the world as members of our club and has been promoting the sport of horseshoe pitching in various forums.
