My favourite Golf Courses in Alberta, Canada

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.
