      GOLF IN ALBERTA

Alberta has many pretty golf courses but some courses are especially scenic.

The Drumheller Golf and Country Club winds its way through the famous Alberta Badlands. At Stewart Creek you can often see Elk (Wapiti) on the fairways and this also applies to Jasper and Banff's Fairmont Golf Courses. In Edmonton you can golf in the beautiful North Saskatchewan River Valley at the Mayfair, Jagare Ridge or Highlands courses. The Jasper Park Lodge Course is rated the highest in the Canada and wildlife is often seen on the course! Many say the 14th tee box at sparkling Lac Beauvert rivals Pebble Beach for raw beauty.

  

Six golf courses in Alberta are rated in the top ten in Canada! Courses in Banff and Jasper are legendary and many a golfer leaves Alberta with fond memories of fairways and greens of velvet and jade. How about golfing on courses where there is 18 hours of light per day.

Prices are very reasonable in Alberta, even at the Rocky Mountain courses, and are especially attractive to Americans whose dollar is much stronger than the Canadian dollar.

Edmonton, Alberta has 37 golf course and is surrounded by almost 60 more?



The Kananaskis Country southwest of Calgary features two Robert Trent Jones courses side by side. Named Mount Lorette and Mount Kidd courses after the spectacular peaks that backdrop them these course challenge your depth perception and experience to the max.

The Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course has 27 holes playing through some of the most spectacular scenery anywere.

Visit Waterton Lakes course which is a fun course, not too tough and braggin of mountain vistas, trees and lots of wild animals.
 

Golf is extremely popular in Alberta. There are over 275 courses in the province including some World-Class fairways.

Wolf Creek, an hour south of Edmonton features 27 holes, designed by Rod Whitman and spread across stunning and surprising scenery.

North Bear Golf Club, just southeast of Edmonton, was designed by jack Nicklaus jsut opened and Blackhawk Golf Club is tucked along the banks of the mighty North Saskatchewan River just south of Edmonton. Another upscale course to visit near the Capital city is Red Tail Landing Golf Club.

Athabasca Falls

The SilverTip Golf Course near Canmore is considered one of North America's most challenging. This is where golf is really on the mountain, more specifically Lady MacDonald Mountain. This relatively new, carts-only, course exploits the site's dramatic elevation changes (600ft) to create epic tee shots and views. If you have more days in Canmore, step into your golf shoes at Stewart Creek, loaded with par 4 fairways and a truly modern design.
