Challenging course with beautiful views. Preferred the gold course at Jasper Park Lodge with more forgiving greens.

Awesome views and good course design make this a must-play for serious golfers. The price tag is way over-the-top, especially when you add in club rental, but no regrets in choosing to play. Staff was very friendly and helpful, and the course was in great condition. Beware of the high-lipped bunkers...get in the wrong one and it's a stroke for... More

Paid a great deal to play with my husband and had to wait five to ten minutes on every hole. So frustrating when you can not get any momentum. Also, at the turn, the snack area was so backed up and the staff were struggling with the cash, that we didn't get a chance to purchase anything. The cart girl... More

If you love golf be sure to take time to play the Banff Springs Golf Course. Along with a well designed variety of holes, you are right in the Canadian Rockies with spectacular scenery. If you grab a bite to eat and have it in your cart, watch out for birds and squirrels who are not afraid to enjoy your... More

This course has spectacular holes, views and challenges. Stanley Thompson was the original architect and did a fantastic job. Proshop and bagdrop service were top notch as was beverage/snack carts on the course. The course has a variety of challenges and hole design to keep golfers of all levels interested.

What an amazing experience! The option of Golf on our APT Rocky Mountains experience was well worth ticking the box! Two us made our way from The Fairmont and the guys in the pro shop could not have been more helpful...2Sets (new) of Taylor Made Clubs were waiting for us, mind you we did have to shoo the little squirrels...

I played this course in June of 2012, and would play it again in a heartbeat. A great Stanley Thompson layout, there is no shortage of memorable holes including #4 and #15. Photo ops! The course was in great shape and a great challenge for any skill of golfer.

Loved this course. I have played it a couple of times now with my dad and always have a great time. It's one of those beautiful courses that you could play again and again. If you are in the area, and are a golfer, definitely check it out.

This is one golf course you want to try. I admit it is not the cheapest but well worth the money. You are playing in between mountains, you might even se some wild life, not other golfers but elk, deer, and maybe even a bear. Amazing course also, it was originally built by Stanley Thompson in 1914. On course you... More
