Firm: Rule Wynn and Rule

Address: 909 50 Avenue SW

Date of final plans: January 1966

Status: standing

The Manager's House at the Calgary Golf and Country Club was the 1966 sequel to the 1958 Clubhouse that Rule Wynn and Rule designed. The house is essentally a bungalow whose grade change allows rear access to a basement garage. In the basement there is a rumpus room and den, while the upstairs has three bedrooms, a living room, dining room, and kitchen. Sliding doors from the dining room exit to a deck at the front. From the street the house is difficult to see. It looks well maintained but I have no idea whether the club manager still lives in it.
