Golf on the Roof of the World - When the game of golf is played on a course...

Golf on the Roof of the World - When the game of golf is played on a course carved out of original Rocky Mountain terrain, something fundamental changes. There is a mystery built in. Not just the practical question of where the ball will land, but how will you ever return to urban golf after a magical mountain golfing experience like the one at Silvertip. Designed by world renowned architect Les Furber, the course plays from an approachable 5,089 yards to an awesome championship 7,173 yards, with over 600 feet of elevation change, making it the single most breathtaking mountain course in the world for literally any level of play.

We traveled from Ireland to celebrate our sons wedding at Silvertip. He married a wonderful girl from Calgary. The setting was incredible, blanketed in Snow which created a unique atmosphere. The food was magnificent and service was very attentive.

After 11 years in Canmore, one of my favs. Fine dining at Rustica, best steak in town. Second restaurant, Stoney's Bar & Grill, with a beautiful outdoor patio overlooking golf course in summer, has 14 meal choices for $14, + more. It is also excellent, & better than Pub food. Golf expensive, but the Views of the mountains incredible.

My significant other and I attended a family wedding at the Silvertip Golf Course. The venue was great with spectacular views of the mountains. The staff and the service was great. You didn't have to ask for anything the staff was right there. The food was delicious. I had the steak and mash potatoes. If you're thinking about having your... More

This is an amazingly beautiful golf course with a short, but challenging layout. Bring your camera aaaand your wallet... Actually, the green fees are the only reason I gave this course three out of four stars. $175 is pretty steep or it would have scored 5/5 easy. The course itself is in excellent condition, the greens are quick, but read... More

Les Furber designed this wonderful course and it is perfect: the views are spectacular, the course is wonderfully maintained, and the greens very tricky. The course was busy, but you couldn't tell; it's so spread out and private. From the highway you can't tell there's a course there; on the course, it feels like deep mountain trails. We loved it.

My best round of golf ever. Not by score, but the mountains and the course was just spectacular! Food was also great at the bar and grill there. Will definitely return.

The primary draw to this location is the great photos you'll see on the reviews. Of course, you can take virtually all the same photos without playing golf. My biggest gripe is the price of 175 Canadian Dollars ($140) for tourists (locals pay 105 CADs). If this was a great course I wouldn't object, but it's merely average. The course... More

We recently held a corporate golf event at the Silvertip Resort. Our group included expert golfers and complete beginners, but the club handled this challenge beautifully. The club pros provided a group lesson which was followed by a session on the driving range with lots of personal instruction. We then played nine holes on the course, and the Rocky Mountain... More
