4.3
#1 of 113 in Golf in Alberta
Offering both scenic beauty in the Canadian Rockies and a quality course, Banff Springs Golf Course often ranks among the best golf courses in the world. The course, originally nine holes in length, was extended by World War I civilian internees, and an architect perfected its design in 1927. Nowadays, the course offers golfers a world-class round, as well as views of the Devil's Cauldron and glacial lakes.

  • Played in September and you guessed it. Elk rutting season. If you want an unusual golfing adventure, try it when the local heard of Elk are strutting their stuff. The bulls will mesmerize you with th...  more »
  • This golf course, with its fresh grass, is an attraction for the elk in the area. On the advice of our hostess we are passed from there and met a bunch of forty chiefs, with several adult males. A unique show!

  • While I thoroughly enjoyed playing the course, I have mixed feelings. The setting and views of the mountains are amazing ,especially for anyone who hasn't been in the Rockies before. That said, I have...  more »

  • Renowned for its panoramic beauty, The Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course, rated 5-1/2 stars, is a captivating and challenging layout set in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. Played in two nine-hole loops (with a third nine, the Tunnel course, also available), the opening holes set the scene for this spectacular Stanley Thompson design.
  • I have played at a lot of resort courses, mostly in North America. This is one of my favourites. The golf course itself is in my top 3 courses. The staff are wonderful, the marshalls are wonderful (when was the last time you heard that!), and the course maintenance crew do a great job. Sure it is expensive, but as an Alberta resident, I get a break. Plus you get a deal if you play on or near your birthday! (Lets hope your birthday isn't in December!) Am I the only one that LOVES the architecture of the clubhouse? Overall this place is excellent.
  • Amazing views and decent golf. The problem is that most courses that charge over $100 have certain perks. You can justify your prices because of location and scenery but you also have to make it a great golf experience too.
  • Great golf course, worth every cent spent. Group of sixteen golfers, we were treated like rock stars. Thank you to all the staff for the wonderful experience. Not our first visit, definitely not our last.
  • Pretty course and course condition. But tiny golf shop, crowded reception and near absent Starter, $250 "golf package" = just the Stanley Thompson 18 + cart + small bucket golf balls from an empty machine (no balls), restaurant closed to special event, snack shop just Nathan's hot dogs and no trash bins, disorganized and crowded due to over-packing special groups, misinformed on everything, van service from hotel not courteous, friday Aug 25, 2017, pro nicely tried to address my complaints but basically no action, to correct basic herding issue, worst check in, in 50 years.
