Silvertip Resort, Canmore Golf Course

Silvertip ResortCANMORE, ALBERTA—Get in touch with Mother Nature by visiting the Silvertip Golf Resort in Canmore, Alberta, Canada. As a world-class championship course designed by Les Furber, the Silvertip Resort promises Canadian Rockies beauty mixed with challenging Banff golf fairways.

The Silvertip Golf Resort overlooks the Bow Valley, and rests in the middle of the Canadian Rocky Mountain wilderness. Because of the golf course’s natural elevation (4,300 feet to 5,200 feet), and its location on the “sunny side” of the Trans-Canada Highway, you get both the warmth of the Southern Alberta sun and a unique view of Canmore, Alberta as you play the 18 holes of magnificently crafted Banff golf. When you’re finished with this Canmore golf course, Calgary is just an hour away to the east, and Banff National Park is twenty minutes to the west.
