Golfers can be easily distracted by the scenery and wildlife. Take the Waterton Lakes Golf Course, where the Par 3 13th hole is a windswept shot across a deep valley to a tiny green carved into the mountainside. The Crowsnest Golf and Country Club, ranked eighth best in Alberta, provides a championship layout and superb mountain scenery.
The challenges of the Les Furberdesigned Lee Creek Golf Club in Cardston include strategically placed water hazards and shaped greens guarded by white sand bunkers. The Bridges golf course in Claresholm offers two distinct nines. The front nine is traditional, with manicured fairways, whereas the Furber-designed back nine offers links-style golf featuring rolling hills and tall grass mounds.
