“Nine and Dine--not”
Reviewed 25 June 2012

Might be a function of new employees for the season, but there wasn't much communication between the concierge who booked our tee time and dinner, the club house and the starter. It was an insult to find out our tee time was moved and then after a FAB round of golf (the course was gorgeous), the club house restaurant was closed for an employee event. It was pouring rain by then, and after a 20 minute wait, the hotel made good by sending us up to the hotel (in golf attire!) for dinner in a lounge. Great food and impeccable service redeemed the gaff, but there was no apology and nothing offered for current or future business. Is that 5 star service? Not in our world.

“The best”
Reviewed 17 June 2012 via mobile

This is the best you will find in Canada,and one of the best in the world. At $225 a round it is worth every penny. Add it to your bucket list. Hole 15 is amazing!

“Absolutely STUNNING views”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

I loved playing this course! The views are to die for. The course itself was well maintained but the greens were a bit rough due to the recently melted snow. Still who was worried when in that amphitheatre in the Rockies. The hire clubs were excellent and the golf carts fun. There are gophers and elk about to add to the fun!

“Worth every cent”
Reviewed 9 June 2012

This was just a marvelous day. This was a wonderful course and despite the fact that it seems all trees, I found it quite forgiving. The views are simply breathtaking. I took lots of pictures and I had to stop every once in a while and simply marvel at where I was playing.
