Owner description: Golf on the Roof of the World - When the game of golf is played on a course carved out of original Rocky Mountain terrain, something fundamental changes. There is a mystery built in. Not just the practical question of where the ball will land, but how will you ever return to urban golf after a magical mountain golfing experience like the one at Silvertip. Designed by world renowned architect Les Furber, the course plays from an approachable 5,089 yards to an awesome championship 7,173 yards, with over 600 feet of elevation change, making it the single most breathtaking mountain course in the world for literally any level of play.

“Amazing Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

A large group of us went for lunch at the restaurant between a wedding ceremony and reception in another part of town. The service was amazing: they had everything set up and ready for us when we got there and the server was helpful, knowledgable, professional, and friendly. The food was fantastic and fresh with high quality ingredients. And you could not beat the views. We had breathtaking mountains rising up all around us and one of the most beautiful golf courses I have every seen! The golfers among us were very impressed and mentioned making a point of coming back another time for a round.

“Mountain Golf at its Finest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

I work at a high end golf course in the State of Michigan, so it is natural for me to compare. Silvertip views were stunning. The golf carts were nicely equipped with a cooler and water, GPS, club and ball cleaning, towels, tees and balls. The starter gave information on the course and the ranger was extremely courteous, making sure the pace of play was good and he took time to talk to us about our golf experience. One odd thing was that we got there a half hour before our tee time and there was nobody waiting to go out, yet we were held back until our exact tee time. Golf seemed pricey but I dit not have anything to compare it to in the area. The greens, fairways and sand traps were very well groomed. Loved the elevated tees in many spots. If I ever go back to Canmore, I will go back to Silver Tip Golf Course.

“Awesome place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Just came back from a 4 day golf mini vacation. Silver Tip was by far the nicest of the four we played at. The views are stunning, the course was immaculate. The only thing that could have made it better was a better golf game on my part.

“Overpriced for this golf course”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We have golfed many places and at beautiful courses but this one is very over priced.Sure you get nice views but you get nice views all over Canmore. The course is set up odd and you do have to walk quite a bit even though you have a golf cart but lots of places are cart path only. If you have no budget than try it but if you are on a budget you can get more for your buck at other courses.
