If you want to experience the most memorable holiday of your life, take a Canadian Rockies golf vacation. This Canadian golf vacation could be for you. Read on with our feature of Golf in the Canadian Rockies.
The Canadian Rockies is amongst the top natural wonders of the world. It is internationally renowned for the sparklingly clean air and its stunning scenery. Coupled with the quiet of unspoiled wilderness, the Canadian Rockies is perhaps the paradise on earth.
Snow-gilded mountain peaks, gem-like lakes, lush green river valleys and wide blue western skies are almost scenery clichés, but on your Canadian Rockies golf vacation this is reality. Golfers from around the world come to just stand and stare at one of nature’s crowning achievements. The fact that you’ll be playing golf in such a fabulous setting is just the icing on the cake. Of course, the numerous world-class golf courses in the area take full advantage of their gorgeous settings.
Verdant fairways weave themselves around glacier-fed streams and towering stands of evergreens, and often the greens themselves are back-dropped by achingly beautiful vistas. If there is a heaven, surely it must look like this! In such circumstances, it can be very difficult to concentrate on your golf game.
There are a wide variety of golf courses to choose from, all of them fabulous in their own unique way. Stanley Thompson, Canada’s master golf architect, designed the Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course in 1928. He sensitively incorporated the natural scenic splendour into his design. The course winds along beside the pristine wilderness of the Bow River overlooked by the snow-capped peaks of Sulphur Mountain and Mount Rundle. This amazing course will both challenge and delight you.
SCOREGolf Magazine rates the Jasper Park Lodge Golf Club as the #1 Best Golf Resort in Canada with good reason. Designed in the 1920’s by Stanley Thompson, few golf courses in the world can match the rugged majesty of this national treasure. The design features wide fairways carved through thick forest, dramatic bunkering and holes aligned with distant mountain vistas. It presents a cunning blend of beautiful landscapes and challenging terrain.
The Canadian Rockies golf vacation would be incomplete without the fine dining, luxurious accommodations, the one-of-a-kind shopping experiences and the self-indulging spas. Thank God, world-renowned resorts like Banff and Jasper in the Canadian Rockies have been offering these amenities for more than a century, with top class service.
This is truly hedonistic luxury in the heart of spectacular unspoiled wilderness. Come and experience the Canadian Rockies tradition!
