Golfing in Banff and the Rockies
Regardless of how bad a golfer you may be, it can still feel darn good getting out into the open, especially in summer for a round with some buddies. If you are the kind of person who can take a ribbing from your friends when your score goes over the 1oo mark before the 9th hole and still keep your patience, then you are a better man than me, and probably a better golfer.
The Rockies is the perfect breeding ground for stunning and unique golf courses. If you are bringing the clubs as well as the skis, here are a few of the best options to provide food for thought.
Silver Tip, Stewart Creek, Banff Springs Golf
Silver tip is highly rated by all who have played. The dramatic views, extreme elevation changes and challenging holes make it a very desirable option for the man or woman who loves their golf. The fairways roll with the slope of the hill so tee shots can often be quite demanding but it forces you to use your imagination to dig yourself out of trouble. The greens are constantly manicured and kept in impeccable shape.
Green fees: $175 include cart with GPS, twilight $105, evening 9-holes $79; Jr (10-17) with adult half price
