CANMORE, ALBERTA, CANADA – Silvertip is one of the top golf courses in Alberta, Canada. Because of its popularity it regularly turns up on golf packages in this region of Canada. Silvertip, named for a rare and beautiful type of grizzly bear, is one of the most scenic golf experiences in the Canadian Rockies, but it comes with great challenges.

“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.”  – Stephen Ames

Les Furber, master designer of golf courses worldwide, is the talent behind Silvertip’s breathtaking golf experience. The par-72 course has 600 feet of elevation change and championship tees with a slope rating of 153. However, with course length between 5,100 to 7,200 yards depending on tee placement, it’s a course that allows both scratch golfers and recreational players to enjoy the course and hone their skills.

Rated one of the best new courses in Canada in 1999 by Golf Digest magazine, Silvertip caters to golfers worldwide. This is a course to match the grandeur and scale of the Canadian Rockies.
