Mountainside Golf Club
hours from Calgary, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains is the world-famous Fairmont
Hot Springs Resort in the BC Rockies. People have been coming here for years to
relax in the natural hot springs of this luxurious resort.
With three golf courses to play - Mountainside, Riverside, and Creekside, Fairmont
is well known for great golf. The beautiful Mountainside course winds its way
along the mountainside and through evergreen forests in the classic links style.
The most famous (or infamous)
of these holes is the aptly named "Fairmonster." At 600 yards, this par 5 is the
place where most monster hitters try to show the course who the boss is. Unfortunately,
this titanic hole has a secret that the aspiring John Dalys do not know: power
is not the key to success on this hole.
for two solid woods and make your move with a long iron to the green on your third
shot. Unless you are Tiger Woods, you are going to require three shots to reach
the green, so keep them under control. This
is very rational advice of course. Rational thought can sometimes be quite boring
though, so if restrained golf is not your thing, then disregard the previous bit
of advice. Rip the driver out of your bag, tee your favorite DT nice and high,
and see if you can knock the dimples to the other side of the ball. With the high
mountain air and a friendly fairway, you just may hit your career drive.
With the choice of three
tee boxes, golfers of all levels will find the challenge to feed their game, but
with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains from nearly every hole, golfers
will find something much harder to come by at the Fairmont Mountainside Golf Club:
scenery to feed the soul. This summer take your golf vacation with BC Golf Vacations.
Course: 18 Holes, Par 71
Fairmont Hot Springs Resort's Riverside Golf
Course offers 6,507 yards of inviting fairways and perfectly manicured greens.
Multiple tee settings and relatively level fairways make Riverside a pleasure
for all levels of player, while tremendous variety in length and terrain tests
the versatility of expert golfers. Renowned for its superb putting surfaces and
course conditions, Riverside is widely hailed as a superb walking course with
spectacular mountain and river views.
Course: 9 Holes, Par 27
Creekside delivers nine holes of Par 3 challenge
on unique fairways featuring ponds, cascading creeks and sand bunkers. Creekside
is perfect for players of all abilities – even seasoned golfers who need a little
practice around the green.
