stopped just for a quick meal and had meet deers

We stopped here for a quick lunch and bathroom break and there were deers outside. I fed them triskets and they seemed very tame for wild animals.

The setting must be one of the best in the world, and there are a couple of magical "signature" holes. It's expensive, and there are a couple of minor niggles, such as the use of artificial turf on the driving range, and a couple of greens that seemed to have been treated with gravel that resulted in some crazy putts.

Absolutely the most scenic mountain views golf course I have ever played. Add that to a superb course layout and great conditions for the fairways and greens plus a super friendly staff and you have one excellent golf experience. A bit pricey (most of Banff is) but worth the cost. I was lucky to be playing with three staff members... More

We played three courses while in the Banff area. The Banff Springs course was just excellent. The views were great, the conditions almost perfect ( a little warm), the pace of play was good (4.5 hours), despite wanting to stop and take pictures all round. It was expensive, but if you love golf, this was a great track. Liked the... More

I played this course in June of 2014. This is easily the nicest course I have played. Breathtaking view surround you, an abundance of wildlife, and a challenging, but not too difficult course. The greens were quick and all of the fairways were in excellent shape. I especially liked that for an additional fee, I could have my girlfriend ride... More

Lovely golf course but VERY expensive. Hubby and I used a cart but others were walking. This is course does have some nice elevation changes and the views are spectacular. Given the price of green fees for this course, the food and beverages are just as expensive ($8 for a hot dog, $3 for a small bag of chips). This... More

We had our first round of the year at The Springs. It is breathtaking in its beauty and natural surroundings. The 9am shotgun started right on time and the staff member that took us out to our starting hole was great. It was mid-May and the greens were quite rough though. Most likely better by June.

Lots of views and a few major elevated tees. Course was in good condition and a few wild life sightings. Its challenging, but less so than Stewart Creek. Its more open with more opportunities to hit driver off the tee without too much concern. We enjoyed the round and chalked the $200 price tag up to a great one off... More

Played the course for first time from white tees at approx 6400 yards. Handicap is around 10. My wife tagged along in the cart and she could not help herself at taking photo after photo at every hole. The views and setting are breath taking.
