From the Rocky Mountains to the World's Top Golf Destinations
Canada is known for many things such as welcoming, friendly and polite people, Ice Hockey, cold winters, hot summers and the most multicultural country in the world. These examples plus many more make Canada an attractive holiday destination or place to call home. However, while golf isn't at the top of many lists, it very well should be. From thousands of miles of coastline, to the major cities that offer championship golf, the jewel in that crown is the Canadian Rockies! The Rockies sit between Calgary and Vancouver and the hundreds of courses that lie in between, deserve to be recognized on the world stage.
Having played some of these courses when I was young to having played some recently over the least few years, the sheer exhilarating fact of playing in such a beautiful place with the prospect of your round being interrupted by a moose sends many golfers to the Great White North!
I am very proud to introduce my business partner to the area and fellow Calgarian, Gord Shultz of Golf Canada’s West. Gord’s wealth of knowledge of the top courses and local hotspots ensure that you will not only have a wonderful golfing experience but a holiday that will leave you with magnificent memories that will last a lifetime or at least long enough until your next Canadian excursion!
