The course was heavily damaged by flood in 2013 which led to a 5-year restoration project led by renowned course designer Gary Browning, the current courses and layout re-opened to the public in May of 2018. 

Since 1983, Kananaskis has been the host of the Interclub, which saw the Highlands secure the inaugural victory. The Women’s interclub was added more recently in 2018 with Inglewood winning. The Interclub acts as a fun event to finish the season for the players, while the clubs are battling for provincial bragging rights. The Men’s side has only a gross competition while the Women’s championship offers both a gross and a net competition. In 2023, Willow Park Golf & Country Club swept the gross competition on both sides, while Mickelson National Golf Club won the Women’s Net portion of the event.
