Best Golf Resorts in the World
Attractive mountain style underlies the casual luxury at this all-season lodge.
At the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, accommodations may include log cabins, but this is no rustic retreat. In a gorgeous Canadian Rockies setting, guests will find a full-service spa with therapeutic mineral baths, fine dining that embraces the resort's Western heritage and fairways designed by Canada's master golf course architect, Stanley Thompson. The 18-hole, par-71 course was built in 1925 and follows the natural contours of the surrounding forest, winding past glacial-fed lakes through a wildlife corridor that is home to elk, caribou, bear and wolves. After putting for par on holes positioned for dramatic views of the snow-capped mountains, players can head to The Moose's Nook Chopehouse for a hearty meal in front of a roaring fire.
