About
In the heart of the Canadian Rockies, less than an hour’s drive from either Calgary or Banff, visitors find a golfing paradise. Kananaskis Country Golf Course is one of the premier golf destinations in the Canadian Rockies and second to none as a spectacular location for a golf vacation. Forming 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). Situated in the Kananaskis Valley among boreal forest, the Mount Lorette and Mount Kidd Courses are named for the soaring limestone peaks that serve as their breathtaking backdrop. The Courses offer immaculate lush fairways, bent grass greens, over 140 silica sand bunkers, four sets of tee boxes, glacier fed creeks and ponds, the cascading Kananaskis River and a variety of wildlife.

Poor business practice ...
Jun 2021
Their 72 / 24 hour refund policy are horrible especially when you need to drive a few hours to get there and there and there being many unforeseen circumstances that can occur, ie weather, accident , illness etc…. There is no empathy with the booking desk, they don’t even ask why you are cancelling .. and the t-time has a very good chance to get re- booked again , total money grab here. I won't be golfing there any longer just for that reason, it is a beautiful course but not worth the financial risk, that’s my opinion !

I'll stick to courses with a fair 24 hr policy..

Don’t Order The Sandwiches, Pack A Lunch
May 2021 • Friends
Golf course was in good shape, staff are pleasant even though they are inexperienced.

The Food & Beverage Manager should be fired allowing the terrible sandwiches I had. They were no larger than a dinner roll with one layer of processed meat, no cheese (too expensive) for $8.00. I had to order 2 so $16.00 for 2 dinner rolls with barely anything inside. Not kidding, look at the picture...not much bigger than my thumb.

4 beers and 2 dinner rolls for $72.00 including my tip of 20% for the staff who seemed embarrassed to hand me the food.

Step up Kananaskis, you should know better by now.

No better course in Alberta
Sep 2020 • Friends
This is one of the best courses in Alberta for playable, cost, condition. The staff is awesome and so friendly. The hot dogs are unreal as well lol. We played Kidd this time and the course ate me up but who cares you are in the mountains. If you don’t play theses courses you are missing out.

Restaurant is superb!
Jun 2020 • Couples
Fabulous view; tasteful, lovely decor; wonderful food. Wait staff are young, relaxed, welcoming, friendly and competent. Husband loved his beef dip—very fresh roll; shaved, tender beef; delicious jus. My lentil soup was flavourful, and garnished with a small heap of several fresh, succulent veggies. Desserts were small—the perfect size for dessert, IMHO. Hubby enjoyed his cheesecake, and the creme brûlée had me dissolving into bliss. We are so glad we stopped here for lunch, on our road trip through the Rockies!

Beautiful Beautiful golf courses!
Jun 2020
In an area with 6 or 7 courses, these 2, Mt. Kidd and Mt. Lorette are the most beautiful and picturesque of the lot. They also provide tees/distances for every skill level. Well managed, with a top quality staff throughout the entire complex. Due to Covid 19 many of the amenities are absent (free valet parking, club handling and storage) but the courteous, helpful and friendly employees are still there. Tee times are hard to come by but there are always some cancellations so give them a call, these courses are reasonably priced compared to the other 3 "major" courses in the area...play them both if you can.

Kananaskis Country is Fabulous Country!
Aug 2019
My husband and I had played Mt. Kidd course twice before the big flood. When we read that they had rebuilt and reopened the golf course, we planned an entire itinerary around a tee-time. This time we played Mt. Lorette. We would like to convey our congratulations to the team that planned and rebuilt these courses. What a monumental undertaking with such spectacular results! Really amazing! The courses are in great shape with views that can be detrimental to your game. The courses at Kananaskis are in such an unbelievably beautiful setting, that you can forget you are there to play golf. We had a grand time playing with a frequent visitor from Calgary. He had Mt. Lorette course knowledge which helped us tremendously. The staff in both the Pro Shop and the Clubhouse were very welcoming. The food is good, too. Don't miss this most stunning spot in Alberta!! Easy to get to, as about an hour's drive from Calgary or 45 minutes over to Canmore, which offers many accommodations and restaurants. The drive itself is worth the trip including the no extra charge wildlife sightings!

Glad they're back! Hurray Alberta
Aug 2019
Played both courses, Lorette one afternoon, and Kidd the next morning. Congratulations to all that were responsible for getting these courses opened again after the tragic flooding. Both were in excellent condition, greens were superb, staff were attentive and well organized. Beautiful facility overall. Panoramic views. Super value.

Mt. Kidd
Aug 2019
Played Mt Kidd Yesterday. Disappointed with how short the fairways were cut. Very hard for the average golfer to get a ball in the air with this. also 30% of the green were in poor condition. Not impress or what I expected for the $$$$
