Silvertip is one of the gems of golf in the Canadian Rockies.
Many American players are flocking to Canada this golf season, thanks to a favorable exchange rate that sees the U.S. dollar netting 20 percent more than the Canadian dollar. With a great summer golf climate, picturesque scenery unique to the region, and a true connection with nature, it's an alluring destination.

While more U.S. players benefit business, Canadian courses and resorts with first-rate services draw Canadians players well too — the old-fashioned way.

“Golfers are still willing to pay for a high-quality experience, great golf course conditions, enjoyable pace of play, and exceptional service,” said Doug Wood, general manager of Silvertip Resort in Canmore, Alberta. “While many courses have cut their rates, we have increased ours by looking after our guests in these ways.”

Not far from Silvertip is Canmore Golf and Curling Club. General manager Darren Cooke mirrors Wood’s opinion and takes it further.

“Golfers are much more astute today, seeking daily play experiences on unique courses with outstanding value for the dollar,” he said. “In the Canadian Rockies we offer the best in all service categories plus world famous landscapes. The new-age player demands that facilities to go above and beyond to win their business.”
