We golfed in the economy 9 hole course. Ok but be prepared to pay. The wildlife on course was worth to high fees.

We had been told by friends that we had to take a look at this fabulous course so we did and thought why not have lunch at the same time so we did. Brandon looked after us really well and served the drinks and our meal which were most enjoyable. The views of the surrounding area are impressive with snow... More

The golf course is definitely one to play when in Banff. We started with a breakfast at the club house then enjoyed a round of golf on this challenging course with many bunkers! The water in and around the course was beautifully used.

Wife and I had a couple of hours to get in some golf at this world class golf resort. What a waste of time, money and nature's gift of a setting. This is at best a poor version of a forgotten municipal golf course. I apologize to any and all city courses for I have played some amazing golf under... More

We paid $230 for two of us on a promotion for perhaps the greatest golf ing day of my life. Each hole is surrounded by beautiful trees and has views of the Canadian rockies. There is heavy bunkering on every hole and the sand is truly penal, being both heavy and soft and difficult to get out of(for me). The... More

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
