Less than an hour’s drive from Banff or Calgary, this classic golf resort is right in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. Designed in the early 1980s by Robert Trent Jones Sr., Kananaskis Country Golf Course has been rated the “best in Western Canada” by Golf Digest, with 4 ½ stars awarded in tribute to its excellence in both service and value.
With mountains rising 9,600 feet above sea level, the courses at Kananaskis Country Golf Course ascend to almost 5,000 feet. The two world-class courses ranging from 5,539 to 7,083 yards are named for the magnificent limestone peaks that hover over them: Mount Kidd and Mount Lourette. On both 18-hole courses you will find glacier-fed ponds and creeks, a plethora of wildlife, evergreen forests, and the cascading Kananaskis River, in addition to over 140 silica sand bunkers and four sets of tee boxes. Robert Trent Jones’ trademark sand traps, undulating greens, and use of water combine with high mountain elevation to create a test of true skill for the low handicap player. With its natural terrain there is plenty of bunkering and water play, creating the perfect environment for a challenging game.
Kananaskis Country Golf Course has a great pro shop featuring all the best known brands in golfing gear, along with an excellent restaurant, fireside lounge, patios with amazing views, valet parking, and a locker room area, you would be hard-pressed to find a better spot to perfect your game. And for the non-golfers among you, this Canadian Rockies vacation destination provides excellent hiking trails along with many high-quality lodges and luxury accommodations nearby.
Guests at the Kananaskis Country Golf Course are free to use the complimentary valet parking, locker room, and shower facilities.
