Jasper Park Lodge is set most splendidly in the rugged Canadian Rocky Mountains of Alberta overlooking the crystal waters of Lake Beauvert. It took 50 teams of horses and 200 men working together for a year in order to clear the land of boulders and debris to prepare it for what would become one of Canada’s premiere golf courses. Since the opening of the mountain golf course in 1925, this jewel set deep in the heart of the Canadian Rockies has been the setting of unforgettable memories for all of those who come to play.
Thompson’s original course was routed twenty years after it opened in 1925 and it now follows a circular route in an old fashioned out-and-back manner with the 9th at the farthest point. Nevertheless, Jasper Park remains a classic architectural example and almost exactly as Thompson originally designed it.
Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge initiated a restoration project in 1994 to return this legendary Canada golf course back to its initial layout. Using Thompson’s original blueprints from 1924, the main focus of the project was spent on restoring the bunkers and tee boxes in an effort to recreate the fundamental design. Highly acclaimed for its challenging layout and spectacular beauty, Jasper Park Lodge Golf Club is rated by SCOREGolf Magazine as the #1 Best Golf Resort in Canada.
