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

Amazing views and wildlife at every turn! Pretty pricey, but the fairways and greens were in awesome shape, and out starter was super friendly and helpful letting us know which holes to look out for, and which views to take in!!! Would play again :)

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. For the golf purest the layout, bunkering challenge you on every shot but leave enough... More

This course was a delight to play. I played the Stanley Thompson 18 on Friday and Tunnel Mountain 9 Saturday and Sunday. The staff are amazing and friendly- a special thanks to Andrea who was helpful with suggestions for dinner. I have played courses in Europe and the U.S. and this is by far the most beautiful course I have... More

I have nothing but good things to say about the staff at this Golf Course. We had excellent service from the bag drop, pro shop, starter and course marshal.

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!
