Enjoy Western Canada’s Best Golf In Canmore Kananaskis
- July 31, 2013
If a bright, clear day spent with friends on the links is your idea of a relaxing getaway, then it’s time you sampled some of the world-class golf courses available close to home in Canmore Kananaskis. Situated less than an hour from Calgary, and in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, you’ll find courses for every budget and skill level – all surrounded by a charming mountain town that leaves you feeling like you’ve visited friends for the weekend, instead of stepping into a busy tourist season.
If you’re new to golf in the Canmore Kananaskis area, or just want to try a fresh challenge, here are four of our premier courses that you should make the time to try for yourself:
The Brewster’s Kananaskis Ranch golf course has 18 holes of mountain golf at its best. Nestled between the base of a pine-covered mountain and a 90-year-old guest ranch, the course follows a winding riverbank, and features a number of challenging greens and approaches.
A great destination for anyone who craves the combination of rugged Western decor with high-class amenities, Kananaskis Ranch is a course most golfers would like to play through several times. And, with online tee time reservations, booking your reservation is a snap.

Silvertip Resort, located on the sunny side of Mount Lady MacDonald, is a golfing gem perched on the edge of an open wilderness area. That means fresh air, stunning mountain views, and a relaxing time on the links all come standard.
The course itself features 600 feet of elevation change with a length that varies greatly depending on the chosen tees. That means it’s perfect for any schedule or skill level, from the professional who wants to test his or her skills to the recreational golfer who just wants to take on a unique course.
