“Spectacular golf”
5 of 5 bubbles Review of Silvertip Resort

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.

“Spectacular golf”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Gorgeous, stunning course. A challenging course with amazing back drop. Every hole is beautiful with the Three Sisters, Ha Ling or Lady MacDonald behind you, but some holes are spectacular. The course is also in great shape, especially the greens. Be prepared to play around a few elks and the occasional bear may cross your path-they give you lots of warnings on the GPS. The bonus in July is that it doesn't get dark until after 9:00pm. Facilities are great-well stocked range, friendly starters and pro shop staff and washrooms are immaculate. We are used to playing in California where the rolling hills in the background are brown due to the drought, so the Rockies seem very lush . Love this course.

“great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

I've been there last year and we had this amazing meal and tasty cocktails. The view is so relaxing. We didn't stay there cause I own a condo, so my friends and I do not need accommodations. One of my friends went golfing and he really enjoyed. I'll come back this summer.
