A true transition province, Alberta features the prairie farmland of its eastern neighbor provinces but as you work to the west past the oil pump jacks, the badlands and foothills you arrive at the majestic Rocky Mountains and all their scenic splendor. Considered the economic engine that drives Canada, the wild rose province has a multitude of prime golf options. With half of the population of the province residing in the 2 major cities, this golf crazy region has several of the "Top 50 Golf Courses in Canada" within its boundaries. Renowned for its variety of topography many layouts are routed through wetlands and boreal forest, while others have been transplanted into desert terrain or carved out of those magnificent Rocky Mountains. Rated as one of the best golf courses in Canada as well as one of the best golf resorts in Canada, the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is as scenic and unforgettable as any layout you will ever experience. With each hole using a mountain peak as its target from the tee box, this Stanley Thompson design has withstood the test of time and will leave you wanting to play there again and again. Consider playing Banff Springs, The Canals, Stewart Creek, Wolf Creek Golf Resort, Priddis Greens, Northern Bear, D'Arcy Ranch, Redtail Landing, Paradise Canyon and Silvertip during your stay in Alberta.
