“Golf course in Banff”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Did not play but rode past. Absolutely gorgeous. They say you have to wait for the elk to move out if they are on the course in early morning or early evening.

“Banff Springs Golf Sept 8/12”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Not the most challenging course, but certainly one of the most scenic. The views are incredible!

The pace of play is very slow no marshall on the course to speed up play. Sept 8/12 had a 3:20 pm tee off delayed to 3:40 pm start because of morning frost. Still on the course at 9:00 pm only played part of the 18th hole to dark to finish. The course is not worth the money.

“BREATHTAKINGLY Beautiful!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Clean, crisp and delightful! Banff Springs and the golf course are truly amazing places to see! The clear babbling river running alongside the golf course is just one of the numerous spectacles one will see while enjoying a day of golf.

“This Course is Way Above Par”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

There aren;t many places in the World as beautiful as this area. Now add a top notch Golf Course and you have made it to golf heaven. From the moment the staff greets you at the door, you see the pride they have in this special place. Not the most challenging course, but certainly the most scenic. The views are incredible! From caribou and deer to bald eagles, this is wilderness golf. You always know it if going to be an adventure when the starter spends more time talking about evasive action againbst bear and elk attack versus the layout of the course.
If you are not a golfer, it still is a great stop to soak up the views and enjoy a cocktail in the clubhouse.
Highly recommended.

“Absolutely Stunning”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

There are no words sometimes to describe how awesome an experience can be golfing in the mountains. This course is brilliant in design and scenery. Did nothing for my golf game but really who cares. Played the 9 hole course, with buggy and drink cart came out to us regularly. If you have a chance to play this course please don't miss out.
