Banff Springs of Alberta, Canada, is an almost indescribably beautiful setting for golf. Over a mile high in the splendor of the Canadian Rockies near the border of British Columbia. Banff is nature at its best - unspoiled and virtually untouched.
Designed in 1928 by the late Stanley Thompson, one of the world’s foremost golf architects, Banff features a course which rolls gently along the Bow river under the snow capped peaks of Sulphur Mansion, Mount Rundle and Tunnel Mountain. Our LINKS design Team has chosen to meticulously reproduce the first 18 holes. The Sulphur Nine and The Rundle Nine – 6643 yards, par 71.
Ranked as a silver medal course by Golf Magazine, Banff demands accuracy with well-placed traps to snare poor shots. Its most famous hole is “The Devil’s Cauldron,” a magnificent par 3 played from a tee perched high above a tiny emerald lake so clear you can almost read the brand names of the golf balls lying on the bottom.
