KANANASKIS COUNTRY, ALBERTA, Canada – There are a lot of great golf packages that feature the top golf courses in Calgary and Alberta. But you would be a fool to pass on nearby Kananaskis Country if you are already in one of the other two cities on a golf vacation.
For those that have never experienced this perfect golf haven, located halfway between Banff and Calgary, then you have never truly played a great mountain golf course.
Envision two first-class golf courses in the shadows of the Canadian Rockies. Both are designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., and framed by dense clusters of forest and home to glacier-fed streams. That is Kananaskis Country golf.
