Kananaskis Country Golf Course, Kananaskis, Alberta

Long after starting out as Stanley Thompson’s junior partner in the 1930s, the illustrious American golf architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. left his own giant imprint on the Canadian game at the 36-hole Kananaskis Country Golf Course.

Both courses wend seamlessly through the Kananaskis River Valley, with more than 6.5 hectares of rivers, streams and ponds, and panoramic mountain views at every turn. Jones himself called Kananaskis the best natural site he’d ever worked with, high praise from an iconic figure famous for his oft-quoted philosophy that every golf hole should be a hard par, but an easy bogey.
