Located deep in the heart of Canada's Rocky Mountains, it took 50 teams of horses and over 200 men to clear boulders and debris from the land that the Jasper Park Lodge Golf Course now sits on. The course's designer, Stanley Thompson, did not let any of the natural assets of the landscape go to waste. Carefully carved from dense forests, the course features wide fairways that hug the natural contours of the land and elevated tees that take advantage of the breathtaking mountain views. The golf course is equally challenging as it is scenic with dramatic bunkering and an abundance of trees and water features that come into play throughout.

One of the first mountain courses in Canada it is very player friendly and can be walked. We played in the middle of May and the greens were not in good condition and some of the fairways lacked growth. All mountain courses offer great views so Jasper is not alone in this category. Normally rated in the top 25 in Canada, I would have to say there are many other courses in the interior of B.C.that are much nicer and certainly offer much better value.

Located just outside the township of Jasper is a course that was put together in 1924 by one of Canada's most prolific golf architects, Stanley Thompson. It consistently seems to fall into the top 25 courses in Canada on a regular basis. I've had a chance to play this course numerous times over the years but I can't rank it in my top 25. Granted the location & scenery that surrounds this course is amazing but I've always found the course conditioning to be on the scruffy side. Jasper Park Lodge Golf Club provides a wide variety of holes, numerous elevation changes, strategic bunkering & generous greens that roll out nicely.

It's been a few years since I played the gem that is JPL. My memories of this course grow fonder by the season, it seems. I favor this Stanley Thompson National Park course over its neighbor, Banff Springs, as it's a routing that just flows so wonderfully. It's the perfect level of difficulty, and the hole variety couldn't be better. I've told people that it may or may not be the best course I've ever played, but there is no course I'd rather play every day, all summer long. Definitely worth the voyage up the Icefields Parkway if you're going to Banff-Canmore.
