SilverTip was named for a rare and beautiful type of grizzly bear, and the natural image is a good match for this exhilarating course. Renowned golf architect Les Furber calls SilverTip, "an extreme golf experience." It's unlikely that you have ever played a golf course of such character and challenge. Rated one of the best new courses in Canada, SilverTip caters to golfers worldwide. This is a course to match the grandeur and scale of the Canadian Rockies.

Our group played 3 courses in Canmore, AB (Canmore GC, Stewart Creek, Silvertip). All were enjoyable. The one that I recommend if you only can play one round is Silvertip. Every hole is beautifully designed and the views of the mountains are amazing. Several holes have water features, so it really is stunning to play. Several challenging holes hit up and down hill being situated on the side of a mountain range, Silvertip rates in the top 5 courses I've played, and I've played many great courses around the world.

First of all, beautiful course. Its a great challenge and great scenery. The greens were nice and fast and rolled true on each and every hole. The fairways were great and the rough was a challenge but nothing unbearable. We had a bit of rain so slightly soggy but nothing that took away from the round.

My biggest drawback on this course is the slope and rating is not recognized by Alberta Golf or the RCGA, which means you cannot enter a score when playing at this course. I love to try new courses but the reason I do is so that my handicap is more accurate and not just from one club. For such a beautiful and well recognized course I have no idea why they cant produce a recognized slope and rating.

Unreal views. Lot of shots to either uphill or extreme downhill to green shots. When we played it was cat paths only. After 9 I ask pro shop If we could go on course walking the hills was crazy difficult. Fortunately we were allowed to go on fairways on back. Like I said unreal in the mountains.

The elevation changes alone make this course a must play. With the changes comes some of the best views of the mountains on any course. Right off the first tee you have a huge downhill dogleg that sets the tone for an enjoyable round.

A lot of fun shots while also mixing in some very difficult recovery shots if your game is not on. It makes you think while not making you play shots you don't have. Mid-summer this course is at its best with really quick greens that make short putts stomach tumblers.

A great place to visit and play once. Steep price may keep thrifty golfers away but to hit a ball into some of those backdrops is at least worth trying once.

The experience is amazing! Stunning views and immaculate course. Elevation changes and undulations make good ball striking necessary to score well but with multiple tees it caters to all levels of golfers. Although no matter what you score I am certain you will leave with a smile. Friendly staff and an awesome patio overlooking the course.

First time I played this course and I already want to make a trip back. It was in excellent condition and a very friendly environment. Plenty of elevation tee to green and very challenging fairways force you to play a long iron off the tee instead of driver. Really brings out the kind of golfer you are and challenges your skills. I played it in a drizzle cloudy kinda day so I can only imagine how nice it would have been with sunshine! Highly recommended
