“Tunnel Mountain 9”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Had a 3rd thrilling opportunity to golf at the Banff Springs Golf Course. Unfortunately the 18 hole course wasn't quite open so we played the Tunnel Mountain 9. It had just opened the day before so the greens were a little bumpy, and the fairways hadn't had the opportunity to grow. However the Robinson design was challenging and we had the great pleasure of playing with John Stutz and his wife. John is the former mayor of Banff, and remarkedly the son of Paul Stutz, a longtime Robinson\family friend who I had golfed with in 1981 and in Burlington Ontario in 1966. Fabulous scenery with countless elk, and cannon sounds of small avalanches falling from nearby Rundle Mountain

“Beautiful course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Great day beautiful course. Didn't golf well at all but it didn't matter when you are in such a scenic place. I will do it again that's for sure. Nice cart girls serving drinks as well

“Trails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Just around the corner from Bow falls. A lot of trails to walk and very peaceful. I would recommend taking a dog with you, as I hear a lot of wildlife roam around, although I didn't see any on the day.

I have been at this Golf Course a few times in the past and it is very nice and situated in a very nice area with awesome moutains view. Once in a while one can come across wild life here too.

“Location, Location”
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'.
