Golf Banff National Park

An Historic Golf Course Amidst the Alpine Splendor of Banff and the Canadian Rockies

Golf at Banff Springs Golf Course, Banff National Park, Canadian RockiesYou might think that in the middle of a national park, with its emphasis on preservation of scenic natural beauty, wilderness and wildlife, that you couldn’t find a golf course. Well, if you were talking about Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies, you would be wrong!

Yes, in the midst of panoramic views of scenic alpine peaks and rugged, unspoiled wilderness of the national park, you can hit the links just outside of Banff town at the Banff Springs Golf Course. And this is no ordinary course; it is famous for more than just being set amidst natural splendor. The Banff Springs Golf Course is historic in its own right and serves up some world class golf – and while there are other excellent golf courses in Western Canada, you would be hard pressed to find one with better scenery.

Banff TravelThe course is located along the scenic Bow River at the foot of Mount Rundle. Stanley Thompson, Canada’s own master golf course architect, designed the original 18-hole course here in 1928. Nine more holes were added in 1989, making for 27 holes of championship layout – more than 6,300 meters.

The Clubhouse is a 30-minute walk from The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. A shuttle service is available between the hotel and the Clubhouse, leaving every half hour (on the hour and half hour) from the hotel’s main entrance. Other services include:

  • golf academy
  • pro shop
  • clubhouse restaurant
  • driving range and practice facility
  • club and shoe rentals

So, when you are ready for some rest and relaxation that is a little more genteel than rock climbing, mountain biking, or hiking, you can always come back to Banff town and hit the links. But get cleaned up first, there is a dress code.
