Situated on the benchlands overlooking Canmore and the picturesque Bow Valley, the SilverTip Golf Resort offers non-stop majestic views of the Canadian Rockies in what is arguably the most scenic mountain golf course in the world. From an elevation of over 5,000 feet, the golf course traverses the alpine benches and winds through the valleys providing the golfer with an overall elevation drop of over 600 feet.

SilverTip was rated by Golf Digest as the second best new Canadian golf course in 1999 and quickly established itself as a first class, world-renowned golf resort, with endless challenges teasing the golfer with every type of golf shot. Playing at over 7,300 yards with a slope rating of 153, Furber has provided the golfer with holes that abound with creativity and design character. Shot making skills are paramount in a fair but demanding test of golf. Furber modestly says that the course was designed by Mother Nature and discovered by the architect.

The ninth hole, playing from the course’s highest point, provides the golfer with an unforgettable view of a green framed by a cascading waterfall and clubhouse with the rugged wilderness of the mountain and valley background. The exhilarating golf shots and breathtaking mountain views leave the golfer with an unforgettable impression in what is truly “an extreme mountain golf experience”.
