BANFF, 01 August 2023 – SCOREGolf Magazine’s biennial ranking of the Top 59 Canadian Public Courses has returned, and Fairmont Hotel’s grandest of fairway experiences in Jasper, Banff and Whistler have all been recognized on the coveted 2023 list, including Jasper and Banff courses achieving top five spots.
No strangers to SCOREGolf accolades, Jasper Park Lodge Golf Club, Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course, and Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club have consistently placed in this Top 59 Canadian roster for the past ten years, and have been touted for their beautiful design, bunkering and jaw dropping mountain settings. Over one hundred architecture enthusiasts comprise SCOREGolf’s ranking panel and judge courses on nine criteria: beauty, design, challenge, strategy, Par 3s, Par 4s, Par 5s, conditioning, and fun factor. A course must be rated by at least seven panelists over the last seven years to be eligible for the Top 59 list.
For those looking to return for another memorable round, or to check off a golf bucket list box, these top Canadian courses have guests covered with a variety of packages and offers available through to the end of golf season. What better way to ‘stay & play’ than to luxuriate on and off the course at the world-renowned Fairmont Banff Springs, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, and Fairmont Chateau Whistler resorts:

- Pro Tip: Playing short on signature hole #4, Devil’s Cauldron, is not an option – and bunkers on the right side should be avoided as recovery from them is difficult.
- Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge Golf Club

- Pro Tip: Given Stanley Thompson’s creative design, use course management wisely to avoid the bunkers – many have high lips to mimic the mountain range in front of you.
- Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club

- Pro Tip: Distance control and accuracy is a premium when playing signature hole #8, as was the vision when Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed this natural beauty.
From vacation packages in Banff and Whistler, to a Midweek Golf for Free experience in Jasper, it is time to embrace the remainder of the season and book a grand golf getaway with Fairmont Hotels in Canada’s western mountain region.
