Golf on the Roof of the World
In view of some of the most spectacular scenery on earth, Silvertip Resort may be the single most breathtaking mountain golf course in the world. Designed by world-renowned golf course architect Les Furber, and influenced by the natural surroundings, Silvertip is certified as an “Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.” Bordering two wildlife corridors, guests are regularly rewarded with the viewing of a wide variety of Rocky Mountain wildlife. The golf course features crystal clear mountain ponds, lush forest, immaculately manicured turf, and inviting fairways and greens. Silvertip is such a pristine wilderness golfing experience that visitors will never want to return to urban golf again.
For after-round refreshment, the Timbers Clubhouse offers guests two spectacular dining options-Rustica fine dining, and Stoney’s Bar and Grill. Rustica’s atmosphere is the ideal blend of Service Beyond™ and rustic charm while Stoney’s casual setting is host to one of the most beautiful golf course patios upon which guests will ever enjoy a beverage. Both restaurants offer Mountain Wilderness Fusion cuisine-local fare and attitude paired with the finest ingredients and recipes from around the globe. Stunning views and exceptional décor are the perfect complement to the Silvertip golfing experience.
With 183 m (600 ft) of elevation change and playable from 5,100 to 7,200 yards, Silvertip is enthusiastically enjoyed by golfers of all skill levels.
Silvertip Golf Academy
At the Silvertip Golf Academy, the approach to instruction is straight forward, and the goal is simple: to make the learning experience the best ever had.
The academy is focused solely around the student and their golf-related goals and ambitions. Recognizing that every golfer is different and that there are many styles of learning, many different approaches to the game, and different expectations from instruction, the Silvertip Golf Academy tailors learning experiences to each individual. Beginning by determining a student’s expectations for learning, the academy structures programs to meet individual goals. In other words, students are taught what they want to learn.

“As a professional, I’ve golfed all over the world and I find the Silvertip Golf Course to be one of the most spectacular I’ve ever played. It is just one reason I’ve chosen Silvertip as my home resort course. Between Les Furber’s incredible layout and the scenery, it is easy to see why.”
Arriving at Silvertip from Calgary International Airport is simple. The Town of Canmore is approximately 90 km (50 mi) west of Calgary and is easily accessed by Highway 1 (the Trans-Canada Highway), which offers a pleasant journey through the foothills into the Canadian Rocky Mountains. When approaching Canmore, watch for signs guiding up the mountain. Whether travelling east or westbound, the Canmore Town Centre exit leads from the highway to the Silvertip entrance.
From Banff, after taking the Canmore Town Centre exit, turn left at the lights to cross the overpass and turn left again at the next set of lights. The Silvertip Golf Resort entrance is on the west side of the Four Points Sheraton Hotel.
