Jasper, Alberta

 
Stanley Thompson, Canada's master golf course architect, displayed his finest work with his design of The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge Golf Course in Alberta. It's hard to imagine a course that hugs snow-capped mountains, meanders past glacial-fed lakes and through a wildlife corridor featuring elk, caribou, bears and wolves. Thompson had the vision and led the team that conceived of and constructed a world-class course in the heart of a Unesco World Heritage Site over 80 years ago. Thompson carved fairways from the surrounding forests, giving top priority to the natural contours of the mountains. As a result, the par 71 course features elevated tee boxes, dramatic bunkers and vistas that scan the surrounding mountain peaks. A stunning natural setting, combined with unparalleled bunkering, makes The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge Golf Club in Alberta a "must play" course and is definitely worth the journey to Jasper!
