  • Worked here in the summer of 2018 on the turf staff. One of the best courses I've had the pleasure of working at and playing! The 4th and 15th holes are my favorite. Watch out for the elk! Especially on holes 5-9 and most of the Tunnel 9. Most golf at least once in your lifetime if you are a fan of the game!
  • Absolutely stunning course with amazing service. Seriously, I told the staff I golf better tipsy and then there was a beer waiting for me next to the tee box on the next hole. Only criticism is that it’s very expensive, but perhaps that’s Stanley Thompson’s fault and not the actual ownerships issue. Also, almost guaranteed you’ll see wildlife. So if you’re not into hikes but want to get the Banff experience you can hit two birds (and maybe birdies) with one stone.
