Stewart Creek Golf & Country Club - Canmore, Alberta
Designed by Canadian Golf Architect Gary Browning in 2000, Stewart Creek Golf Club is another favorite in the Canadian Rockies among locals and visiting guests. With breathtaking views of the Cascade, Pigeon, Three Sisters, and Ha Ling Mountains, a round at Stewart Creek is indeed memorable. Normally you would have much clearer views of these mountain ranges, however, nearby wildfires had obscured the view with smoke.
One of the more unique aspects of Stewart Creek is that the course is built upon an abandoned coal mining operation. There are actually old mine shafts visible on the golf course. The entrances are sealed off but the shafts below remain. Naturally, we did some golf modeling in front of one of the mine shafts. You can view all of the details here.
