A swing ahead

New online technology adds to your golf experience

by Dan Williams

You are driving through southern Alberta heading towards British Columbia looking for the next golf course challenge. While on your laptop surfing the different courses, you click onto Crowsnest Pass Golf and Country Club and presto, you find a virtual, hole-by-hole, 360-degree panoramic view of the entire course—not to mention the magnificent views of the Flathead mountain range, Turtle Mountain and the Pass Powderkeg Ski Hill from every hole. This virtual tour is new technology that was developed locally and now has the interest of other golf courses.

Peter Stewart, general manager of the Crowsnest Pass Golf and Country Club in Blairmore, Alberta, has been hard at work with his team upgrading the course, the clubhouse menu and promotional offers to meet and exceed the travelling golfer's expectations. 

A new loyalty program, the Golf The Crow Card, will earn you a free round and cart on your first visit, with additional savings on green fees every time you play. For a reasonable price, your loyalty card also includes discounts in the clubhouse restaurant and at surrounding area partners. After completing your virtual tour, you can get your card online with another click of the mouse.

A Les Furber design, the course features mountain topography and golfers will experience several hundred feet of elevation as they play through. A par 73, 6,800-yard course, shot for shot, Crowsnest Pass Golf and Country Club is a beautiful course unmatched in southern Alberta.
