Jasper National Park Golfing

For Jasper National Park golfing, there is one choice, and it’s a good one: FAIRMONT JASPER PARK LODGE GOLF COURSE (780/852-6090), one of Canada’s top golf courses, was designed by renowned golf course architect Stanley Thompson. The course opened in 1925, after 200 men had spent an entire year clearing trees and laying out the holes to Thompson’s design. Today, it is consistently ranked as one of the top 10 courses in Canada. The 18-hole, 6,670-yard course takes in the contours of the Athabasca River Valley as it hugs the banks of turquoise-coloured Lac Beauvert. It is a true test of accuracy, and with holes named The Maze, The Bad Baby, and The Bay, you’ll need lots of balls. The season runs early May to early October. Facilities include a driving range, club rentals, snack shack, a restaurant, and a lounge.
