4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Surprisingly, the Banff Springs golf course is flat--green lawns swaying through the trees. But the wildlife and the views are outstanding. I saw a male elk hunkered down and chewing his cud. His harem of 6 or 7 were attending. The big guy's antlers were fully grown and even though he had his belly on the ground, his antlers were taller than me.
If you are in the area, it is a 'must play'.
