KANANASKIS, ALBERTA—It seems that whenever the sun comes out in Banff, all I can think about is playing a round of golf in the midst of the Canadian Rockies! Let’s face it – this place was created by the man in the clouds for golf. Lush greens, perfect spring and summer weather and absolutely stunning views make for the most memorable round of golf or even golfing trip you are likely to have. Kananaskis Golf Course is only a short drive from either Calgary or Banff and frankly it is one of the best golf courses in the world. Better news again – they are now taking bookings!
The rugged mountains tower over 10,000 feet above sea level and make a great canvas for the course which is 5,000 feet above sea level. The fairways are as lush as the hair of a beautiful woman (I am told…), the bent grass greens are challenging but rewarding, there are over 140 silica sand bunkers, four sets of tee boxes, glacier-fed creeks and ponds, the cascading Kananaskis River and all kinds of wildlife. Even if you shoot 185, you are going to have the time of your life.
Former presidents of certain countries have often made the sneaky helicopter trip to the Rockies to enjoy a quick round in the peaceful serenity of the Canadian Rockies…probably before hitting the bar for some après golf expensive drinks on the taxpayer! Kananaskis Golf Course is located in one of the most beautiful places in Canada and just so happens to be one of the best courses in Canada too. Get in early to book a tea time.
