Imagine a golf course where the fairways are carved from the surrounding forests, following the natural contours of an alpine valley surrounded by towering mountains and meandering past glacier-fed lakes. Imagine seeing elk, caribou, or bears on the back nine. This is no pipe dream. The Stanley Thompson designed Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge golf course with its elevated tee boxes and unmatched bunkering is continually ranked one of the best courses in the world. And a good number of our signature courses in the Canadian Rockies and throughout Alberta make the top ten lists year after year.
Some of our more than 250 courses are downright unusual. Picture this one: standing on the top of a butte, you notice that both sides of the fairway plunge to the canyon floor below. A panorama of striped canyons and surreal rock formations unfolds before you. Welcome to golf in the Canadian Badlands. And if you’re a die-hard, endless twilight in high summer up north means hitting the links until close to midnight. No matter your bliss, Alberta has courses to challenge all skill levels.
