The spectacular Banff Springs Golf Course, located along the scenic Bow River at the foot of Mount Rundle, is the only course in Banff. It is both breathtaking and challenging. Banff Springs offers the 18-hole Stanley Thompson course, and the 9-hole Tunnel Mountain course. Total length of the 27 holes is over 7,000 yards (6,363 metres).
The original 18 holes at Banff Springs were designed in 1928 by Stanley Thompson, Canada's master golf course architect. Nine more holes were added in 1989, resulting in 27 holes of championship layout. The clubhouse is a 30-minute walk from The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. A shuttle service is available between the hotel and the clubhouse, leaving every half hour (on the hour and half hour) from the hotel's main entrance. Other services include:
