Welcome to the Ranchmen's Club

Western Canada’s preeminent private city club, the Ranchmen’s Club is the private club of choice for excellence in service, dining and activities.

The Club was founded in May 1891 as a private social club by seven ranchers, a banker and a barrister who called themselves The Pack of Western Wolves and originally met in a boxcar called the Wolves Den on a railway siding. Later, moving to rooms above a downtown Calgary restaurant, and then purchasing property and a house to be used as a clubhouse, the membership grew quickly to include lawyers, bankers and businessmen. Today the Club is home to community leaders – men and women from all walks of life, including the third and fourth generations of the Club's founding members!
