“This is definitely one of the most beautiful courses I have ever played. The physical setting is striking, with high mountains visible in all directions. Wildlife included a large fox running across the second fairway, and a wide variety of fowl. Cart paths often go through wooded areas for additional aesthetic charm. The course is challenging, without being daunting for a mid- to high-handicapper. The scorecards suggest which tees are appropriate for different ranges of handicaps, and our foursome found those recommendations quite accurate. Water comes into play on several holes, either lying alongside fairways, or crossing between tee boxes and the greens on some par-3’s. The course was well groomed, greens in good condition, and rough long enough to pose a challenge without making errant shots impossible to recover from. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. While I am sensitive to Canadian feelings on the matter, I also cannot fail to mention that the current exchange rate makes play in Canada a great bargain as well. All in all, playing at Fernie was an extremely pleasant experience.”
