Stewart Creek Golf and Country Club in Alberta's Canadian Rockies

Stewart Creek Golf & Country Club is a new, upscale golf course in Alberta's Canadian Rockies in the mountain town of Canmore and the flagship course of the Three Sisters Mountain Village.

Across the valley from another modern mountain golf course, Silvertip Golf Resort, Stewart Creek opened in 2000 and was designed by Gary Browning. The course carries a mining theme throughout as a result of its site on a former coal mine. Stewart Creek Golf & Country Club's first hole features a mine entrance, as well as the par-4 14th hole. It's a championship layout with five sets of tee boxes, including a back set of tees that plays over 7,100 yards.

The golf course is named after the creek, named after miner Archibald Stewart, that runs before the 15th green.

Brandon Tucker is the Managing Editor for Golf Advisor. To date, his golf travels have taken him to over two dozen countries and over 500 golf courses worldwide. While he's played some of the most prestigious courses in the world, Tucker's favorite way to play the game is on a great muni in under three hours.

While the masses come to Banff Springs from all over the world, Kananaskis is lesser known. But it's closer to Calgary, and peak-season green fees for Kananaskis Country Golf Course are a bit cheaper than Banff Springs, Stewart Creek and Silvertip as well (and there's no charge for grizzly bear sightings).
Silvertip Golf Resort, located in Alberta's Canadian Rockies, is one of the area's newest golf courses, and it's certainly the most dramatic. The course is set on a mountainside, which sets up more than 600 feet of elevation change from the course's highest to lowest point.
