The Alberta Classic was a golf tournament on the Nationwide Tour from 2003 to 2005. It was played in the Calgary, Alberta, Canada area. In 2003, it was played at The Links of Glen Eagles in Cochrane. In 2004 and 2005, it was played at the Redwood Meadows Golf and Country Club near Bragg Creek.

Tom Carter won the inaugural event in 2003, and because it was his third Nationwide Tour win of the season, he earned a promotion to the PGA Tour.[1][2] Canadian David Hearn won the 2004 event.[3][4] Peter Tomasulo won the third and final event in 2005.[5][6]

The purse each year was US$450,000, with $81,000 going to the winner.
