There are a number of excellent golf courses you can play in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. There are three areas to consider; The Kananaskis, Canmore and Banff areas. All are approximately one hours drive from Calgary, Alberta. All Are in the middle of some of the beautiful mountain scenery you will ever experience. Infact after you have played some golf, you can do some world class hiking in the many parks located in the area.
In the heart of the Canadian Rockies, less than an hour’s drive from either Calgary or Banff, is the Kananaskis Country Golf Course. It is one of the premier golf destinations in the Canadian Rockies. The surrounding rocky mountains form an unforgettable landscape, the rugged surrounding mountains tower 10,000 feet (3,000 metres) above sea level, the courses themselves are at almost 5,000 feet (1,500 metres).
Down the road is located the beautiful town of Canmore. This picturesque town is home to three golf courses. This includes the Canmore Golf Club, Silver Tip Golf and Country Club and Stewart Creek Golf and Country Club. The Canmore Golf Club is Canmores original golf course. The Silver Tip Golf and Country Club sits at the foot Mount Lady MacDonald. The Stewart Creek Golf and Country Club sits at the foot of the Three Sisters.
The Banff Springs Golf Club is premier golf course in this region. Since 1911, members have been playing on this course. It is owned and operated by the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. It is located at foot of Mount Rundle.

I live at 7000 feet in Wyoming. The terrain is mostly prairie and desert, so much of our climate is standard for type. Add in the altitude, and you’ll end up with very hot, very short summer seasons, no spring or fall to speak of, and long, very cold winters.
I have known it to snow here on the fourth of July, but normally our last snow is in early June and our first snow is the second week of September. Any growing crops have to be of the short-season variety, and trees can be difficult to plant successfully because we have to wait until the last frost danger has passed, while there isn’t really time to get sufficient roots established to carry them through the minus 40 degree winters.
Any other questions you’d like to know, just ask. I have lived in Colorado, Idaho and Montana, also. Those states vary more by area than Wyoming does.

Hank is an an FIV+ cat who has remained robust and healthy over the years. Large, longhaired and very handsome, Hank is laid-back and mellow. When he is in the mood, he will sit in your lap.
Hank came to Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue in 2004 when the shelter received a call from a pit bull rescue group who found Hank injured in a junkyard. Our volunteers rescued him, and the shelter had his wound treated.
He now resides in John’s room where he enjoys spending time in the secured outdoor enclosure and napping in one of the covered cat beds inside the shelter.
Hank would love to find a home of his own after spending 7 years at the shelter, If he sounds like the cat for you, come on down and adopt Hank today.
