About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 7136 yards
Slope 140
Rating 73.7

With the Canadian Rockies serving as the backdrop, the two 18-hole layouts at Kananaskis Country Golf Course are equipped with a rugged natural terrain and amazing views. Golfers can also expect to be joined by a variety of wildlife during their round. Robert Trent Jones designed both courses. The Mount Kidd Course is situated at the base of its namesake mountain, which soars over 10,000 feet above sea level. Unlike the other golf course at the facility, Mount Lorette, where water plays a major role, this course is dominated by sand. The plentiful silica sand bunkers present a formidable challenge for even the most skilled golfers at Kananaskis.

Played 36 at Mt. Kidd

I'll give the course a 9 out of 10. The only reason it's not a 10 is because the greens were a little shaggy, and there were still tiny holes in the greens from a recent aerification. Also, there are no beverage carts on the course. Mountain views are incredibly amazing!! Pro shop staff, bag drop & valet staff, and snack shack staff were all top notch. I'd definitely play here again.

A triumphant return for Kananaskis

The 2013 flood that closed the 36-hole Kananaskis Country for five years seemed like a distant memory the day I played 36 holes at Kananaskis. Both courses looked great, even in a steady rain. Architect Gary Browning did a fine job reviving the original holes and fortifying the riverbanks from future flooding.
Mount Kidd might have the two best holes on property - the par-3 fourth over the river and the risk-reward short par-4 fifth bordering the river - even though I slightly favor Mount Lorette overall.
They're both similar in feel and beauty. During my rounds, a bear appeared on Mount Kidd and a wolf on Mount Lorette, proving how rugged this wildness really is.
Playing here is almost half the cost of Stewart Creek and Banff Springs - plus slightly closer to Calgary - so they're a great re-addition to the Canadian Rockies.
