Fairmont’s Western Mountain Golf Properties Anticipating an Outstanding Summer

Banff, AB – Though summer may seem forever away, the professional teams at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts’ celebrated western Canadian golf properties in Banff, Jasper, and Whistler are forecasting one of their best golf seasons in years.

The winter preparations went very well at Fairmont Banff SpringsFairmont Chateau Lake Louise, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, and Fairmont Chateau Whistler. Now, the famed resorts are beginning the long, careful process of readying their world-class operations to welcome back eager golf guests as soon as weather permits. Aiding in the process, the properties are riding a crest of surging enthusiasm among international golf industry experts.

In fact, the famed Stanley Thompson-designed golf courses of Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge Golf Club and Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course enjoyed a meteoritic rise on Golf Digest’s recently published list of the World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses. Jasper’s golf course rose to No. 58 on the prestigious world rankings (up from No. 89 on the previous list) and Banff’s golf course went to No. 87 from No. 99. Additionally, all three properties – Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, Fairmont Banff Springs and Fairmont Chateau Whistler – were named among the Top 100 Resorts in North America on GOLF Magazine’s 2019/2020 list.

“Last season turned out to be a banner year for all of Fairmont’s western mountain golf properties in Canada,” said Steven Young, Director of Golf at Fairmont Banff Springs. “With the wonderful recognition our courses and golf teams have recently enjoyed, we are all anticipating an even more outstanding golf season for 2020. It’s tremendously exciting to be a part of this.”
