Great Golf Course but the views just blow you away, some pretty tricky holes thrown in too, had a great 18 holes here, highly recommend to anyone who can swing a club as its an amazing experience.

The Elk love the golf course. Look along the edge of fairways where the grass meets the forest. We just took a drive to the golf course, kept on the road, drove slowly around and heard them bugeling (it was September) - got some great pics.

They had a lot of different terrain on this course and a great amount of variety. Need to watch out for the animals at times... especially Elk!

I went golfing here and was snowed on, saw a moose on the course, was warm on the back nine as the weather changed and had overall a great time with my family. You just can't beat being on a golf course with this kind of view.

As our son previously told us,Banff Springs Golf Course is considered by many as one of the 10 best golf courses in the world! So when it came time to visit Banff last September, we did not really have a choice and made sure to book a reservation for a 9 hole tee time. Since my son is a junior... More

Beautiful drive along the golf course. Frequent Elk herd and sometimes Grizzly bears. Easy slow drive with pull off opportunities. Golf looks great as long as you let the Elk wander through.

The Banff Springs Hotel runs a shuttle service to the golf course and the restaurant is at the end of the trip. The building is fantastic, with a central open fire and massive exposed beams. The service for drinks and food was very good, the bill was split for the party of 10 and the last shuttle bus back to... More

We enjoyed lunch at this restaurant two days in October. I had the Cob Salad and my husband had the Brisket Salad. Both were so delicious that we went back the next day for the same lunch. The views, service and atmosphere were all amazing, with a wood fire burning to make it feel cozy. The golf course was preparing... More

A couple from Japan recommended we take a drive to the golf course at dusk.There is a road open to the public that follows the length of the golf course. It is a great place to see herd of elk each evening. You can stay in your car to take pictures and listen to them 'sing'. It sounds like a... More
