Banff Springs Golf Club, Banff Canada

Banff Springs Golf Club, Banff Canada Highlights

Banff Springs Golf Club in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies is owned by undoubtedly the greatest hotel in the Rocky Mountains, the Banff Springs Hotel, one of the grandest castles you could ever hope to encounter rising from the valley alongside the glacial Bow River.  Built by the railroads as an essential stop heading east or west, it is the quintessential Canadian Rockies resort experience and Banff Springs Golf Club is the quintessential Canadian golf course.  Banff Springs Golf Club was designed in 1911 by the great Stanley Thompson, an architect revered by those in the know every bit as much as the great Donald Ross and Alister MacKenzie.  Banff Springs Golf Club is a masterpiece in the valley, a course that oozes history and charm and with one of the world’s greatest par-3s, the famous “Devil’s Cauldron.”  In the old days, Banff Springs Golf Club began next to the Banff Springs Hotel at the base of what is now the Waldhaus Pub (one not to be missed!).  Though the routing has changed, and the course now starts at the far end, the classic challenge remains and Banff Springs golf Club is one to play twice in our opinion.  There is no better place to stay than the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, a trip back in time and home to a world-class spa and every amenity you can imagine.  Put Banff Springs Golf Club, just 90 minutes or so from Calgary Alberta, on your list of “must visits” in your lifetime, and better yet, get here to the Canadian Rockies for a golf tour as soon as you can!
