BANFF SPRINGS

We’re headed to the majestic mountain town of Banff in Alberta, Canada. This charming place is renowned for its panoramic beauty, incredible skiing, a unique film festival, and its world-class golf course. The Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course is a “must play,” for any serious golfer.

  • The original 18-hole course was built in 1928 by Stanley Thompson, one of Canada’s most famed course architects.
  • In 1989, 9-holes were added. This addition was designed by Cornish and Robinson.
  • Many players, both amateurs and professionals, have described an optical illusion created by the surrounding mountains adding to the challenge of play.
  • The hotel that accompanies the course was opened in 1888 as one of Canada’s Grant Railway Hotels.
  • The Fairmont at Banff Springs has been affectionately nicknamed, “The Castle in the Rockies”. The architectural style is that of Scottish Baronial which is defined by: uneven roof lines, gables, and small turrets called bartizans.
