Silvertip, Canmore

Day 2 of our trip had us golfing the beautiful Silvertip golf resort.

One thing I’ll never get used to is the thin mountain air.  I didn’t grab the right club out of the cart on hole #10 greenside.  I thought I was 30 yards short of the green, but the ball was actually another 60 yards further back.  So that meant a hike back up the mountain (across the fairway) to the cart, then back down to 90yards out, then back up 90 yards to the green, chip on, putt out, then hike back up the mountain slope to the cart.  Wow, I was still trying to catch my breath for the next 2 holes afterwards from all that hiking!

Welcome to Silvertip!

A real pretty par 5. It doglegs right and then straight UPHILL to the pin

A fun par 4. I pulled my drive left of the tall single pine, hit the forest, bounced out and had 200y uphill left to the pin on the right! Hybrid to greenside in between the bunkers (phew), chipped on and putted out.

Looking back on to the tee box on the same par 4 hole

2nd shot on hole #18. We both landed on the right fringe from this area. Hard not to get distracted with the view instead!
