Banff Springs Golf Course

We continued our mountain trip to Banff Springs Golf Course.  Banff was ranked #6 in ScoreGolf’s top 100 courses in Canada for 2014.  Compared to Stewart Creek and Silvertip, this was a much flatter and perhaps easier course.  The course itself is very playable, complete with an occasional ‘wow’ hole framed by the mountains or by the Fairmont Banff Hotel.

We found Banff to be a nice balance between being tourist friendly and great views but to be honest, there are better deals/value for your golfing dollars just 20 minutes south of Banff in Canmore.  For a course that is just as interesting and playable, I’d recommend Stewart Creek.  In terms of pure visual sensory overload, you might want to check out Silvertip first.

Regardless, it was yet another excellent day of golf for the crunchy couple in the mountains!

We actually had a huge storm brewing behind us all day long, chasing us all the way to the 18th and luckily, we finished just in time before thunder and heavy rain downpour got to us on the course.  *phew*
