Browning opened in the spring of 2000. Gary has taken the most pristine

belonged there. The course features breathtaking mountain views, abundant

views - spectacular.
Renowned for its panoramic beauty, the Banff Springs Golf Course is both
captivating and challenging. The optical illusions created by the mountains
towering overhead can deceive the eye of even the most skilled player. Stanley
Thompson, master golf course architect, used his expert talent when he designed
the original 18 holes in 1928. Making the most of the natural landscape, he
weaved the course around majestic evergreens, in the shadow of the mountains and
along the banks of two rivers. In 1989, 9 holes were added, resulting in 27
holes of championship layout. Recently the course has been fully resorted back
to the original Stanley Thompson design with modifications for today's long
drive technology. It is common to be playing along side some magnificent elk.
