“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

Loved this course. I have played it a couple of times now with my dad and always have a great time. It's one of those beautiful courses that you could play again and again. If you are in the area, and are a golfer, definitely check it out.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

This is one golf course you want to try. I admit it is not the cheapest but well worth the money. You are playing in between mountains, you might even se some wild life, not other golfers but elk, deer, and maybe even a bear. Amazing course also, it was originally built by Stanley Thompson in 1914. On course you don't want to miss, also good quality clubs are available to rent.

“Pretty Grounds, Nice For A Walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We walked through the grounds a couple of times, hoping to see the elk and also because it is a nice walk. There were no elk, but plenty of elk poo further on! But for the most part it is really nice scenery. We did see a couple of squirrels and a white weasel, which you could barely see with snowy background, but he was cute all the same!

“Golf was the last thing on my mind...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Wildlife....that is the only reason I drove into the Banff Springs Golf Course at 430 on a Saturday afternoon. After driving from Seattle and seeing next to no wildlife, we were told that we would be guaranteed elk at least. And they werent wrong! 15 to 20 lazing on the fairway of one particular hole allowed some zoom photography and right at the end of the drive we came across 10 deer grazing in an open field. The course itself looks beautiful and it makes a terrific spot to view some locals. So it's all good!!
