This week I wanted to highlight some of my favourite courses in my home province of Alberta, see the list below and my reasons for each:
#1 - The Banff Springs Golf Club: Location - Banff, Alberta. Why - The best views of the Canadian Rockies you can get from a course.
#2 - Wolf Creek Golf Resort (East/West course): Location - Ponoka, Alberta. Why - As close as you can get to a links course in Alberta, very challenging and beautiful.
#3 - Blackhawk Golf Club: Location - Spruce Grove, Alberta. Why - The combination of perfectly manicured fairways and greens with rugged bunkers and fescue make this my 3rd favourite course to play in Alberta.
#4 - Sundre Golf Club: Location - Sundre, Alberta. Why - my home course from age 7-18 so I feel a bit nostalgic about this place, but since its renovations in the early 2000's it has turned into a serious hidden gem.
