Stanley Thompson golf course at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in the Canadian Rockies
Nestled between the Canadian Rockies and a stunning alpine lake, the historic Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in Western Canada announces the "Golf For Free" package, from $299 CAD per person, per night, to include:
- Luxury accommodations for a minimum of two nights
- One round of golf per day
- Golf cart
- Range balls
The lovely, rugged golf course designed by Stanley Thompson meanders through aspen groves around gigantic boulders, along the edge of azure Lac Beauvert, surrounded by mountains and pure wilderness. Bear, elk and coyote play on the fairways while golfers contend with elevated tees and huge, undulating greens, devilishly sloping off at the sides.
Like an upscale summer camp, the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge has a Great Room with comfy sofas and armchairs, writing tables, rocking chairs, fireplaces and views of what seems to be half of the Canadian Rockies.
