 Trip Overview


The tour begins in Calgary where you pick up your hire car and drive to Banff. Three nights are spent in the town of Banff where you play Banff Springs GC and Stewart Creek GC. We highly recommend you add on our Pre Tour Option that includes a 2-day journey on the Rocky Mountaineer Train from Vancouver to Banff plus 2 extra nights in Banff . This gives you time to enjoy the numrerous sightseeing and adventure activities Banff has to offer. See below for details.

Today could be the highlight of the tour as you drive along one of the most famous roads in the world, "The Icefields Parkway". You can stop at the Athabasca Falls and the Athabasca Glacier where you can board one of the enormous all terrain Ice Explorers and head up on the glacier. Other recommended stops on the way include the picturesque Lake Louise, and Moraine Lake. Finally you arrive at Jasper and check in for 3-nights at the best hotel in town. There is the option to upgrade your accommodation and stay at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge situated in the National Park.
Whilst in Jasper, you play golf at the picturesque Jasper Park Lodge Golf Course and do some sightseeing:  suggestions include a cruise to Spirit Island, a walk along the stunning Maligne Canyon and Falls and a bicylce ride around Lac Beauvert. It is also recommended you play an extra 9 holes at Jasper in the evening when the wildlife comes out. 
Then it's moving day, with a scenic drive to Kamloops and a suggested stop along the way at Blue River for lunch and a Bear Cruise. One night is spent in Kamloops where you play the dramatic and visually stunning Tobiano Golf Course. After golf and lunch, you continue onto Whistler, the Adventure Capital of British Columbia. Four nights are spent in the heart of Whistler where you play two games of golf: Chateau Whistler, one of the best mountain courses in the world, and the picturesque Nicklaus North Golf Course. There is plenty of sightseeing too: the gondola up Blackcomb Mountain with lunch at the top, is a must. And the zip lining is highly recommended. There is the option for the keen golfers to also play Whistler Golf Course designed by Arnold Palmer and Big Sky Golf Course, which has amazing mountain backdrops. 
 The tour ends with a drive along the famouse Sea to Sky Highway to Vancouver. On the way we recommend you visit the famous Capilano Suspension Bridge or play the scenic Furry Creek Golf Club.
