I am not a golfer, so can't really rate the actual golf course, although it is beautiful! What I can tell you is that we rode around the golf course each evening to watch the beautiful elk graze there. We were there during runting season...More

No we didn't play golf, but had read somewhere that taking the golf course road was a good place to spot some animals. We had been in Banff a few days and had not seen much. The drive out is really nice, with great views....More

Actually, it's Golf Course Road that I'm reviewing but as others have found, Tripadvisor doesn't have an entry for that. We took a drive early one morning in September. The golf course is home to lots and LOTS of elk! It was rutting season, so...More

Thank-you for sharing your experience. We have resort tees (identified with red tee blocks) we put at the beginning of each fairway to allow beginners to avoid having to hit their tee shots over the fescue areas and assist with speed of play.

This was my first time in the Rockies...and I could not believe my eyes during the whole round. You're playing right beside huge mountains...very very cool. The Bow river flows right by a few holes too...also saw a couple of elk. This should be on...More

This course exceeded my expectations and is as well-kept as any private country club course I have ever played. The scenery is impossible to beat and the layout of the course is fantastic. Every hole, I'd think "this has to be the prettiest hole on...More

There are only a few courses I've played that have this kind of scenery. Pebble of course, and Teeth of the Dog, Capilano in Vancouver. Very well maintained, fast greens. Bunker sand was a little heavy and not what you would find at a PGA...More
