Enjoy the sun on the long summer days at this mountain course
Silvertip Resort is similar in many ways to its sister course in B.C., Eagle Ranch—but it definitely has its own unique charm, as well. Being located on the southern side of the mountain range, visitors and members alike get to bask in the sun during Silvertip’s long, warm summer days.
“You just feel like you’re on top of the world,” said head pro Steve Haggard. “You’re literally right on top of the Rocky Mountains.”
The beauty of the Canmore course doesn’t have to be fleeting, however: there are new developments and real estate opportunities coming up in the next year.
“It’s actually a village that is being developed,” said Haggard. “We’re just kind of in the planning stages of it, but a lot of homes have already been built and there are quite a few that are going in this fall.”
The new homes aren’t all that are being added, either. Both Silvertip and Eagle Ranch are working on constructing a short course at their respective resorts.
“What it’s going to be is a shorter golf course inside the existing golf course,” said Haggard, “and this is to bring more people into the game of golf at a world-class facility, just at shorter yardage.”
Silvertip has won a variety of awards, both for its food and its golf—including a 4.5 star rating by Golf Digest.
