Greywolf Golf Course

The top-ranked course in Western Canada is located just across the Alberta/British Columbia border and is only a 90-minute drive from Banff.  This is Greywolf Golf Course and it is the site of a green setting that is straight from the imagination, one that must be seen to be believed.  It is the green on the par-3 6th, named “Cliffhanger”, and no more apt name exists on any golf hole in the world.  A 140-to-200 yard carry over equally aptly-named “Hopeful Valley” is required to what can only be described as a “mountain-island” green.  The drop offs short, left, and long are beyond severe, and it is one of the most awe-inspiring holes you could ever have the privilege to play.  Not everything is this difficult though--as you play the 9th, called “Wolf’s Lake”, you will think you have been transported to the Alps with the Swiss chalets behind the green.  Greywolf is without question one of the world’s premier mountain courses, and it is both stunning and intimidating.   For the serious golfer, this is a day-trip from Banff that is a must-happen!
