1 Lorette Dr
Kananaskis, AB T0L 2H0, Canada
This well-regarded 36-hole facility is located amongst a boreal forest in the picturesque foothills of the Canadian Rockies, west of Calgary. But the devastating floods of June, 2013 essentially destroyed both the Mount Kidd and Mount Lorette courses. The club announced in January of 2015 that architect Gary Browning will oversee the environmentally conscious reconstruction and restoration of both courses, which were originally designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr.

Course did not winter well in 2011 / 2012 as fairways and some greens are terrible. For the first time, in recent memory they have allowed carts on fairways and this speeds up play and increases enjoyment at the course.

The winter was really harsh on this course. The fairways are really bad - half the greens are dead and resodded. Let this course be for awhile.

No doubt, one of the prettiest places to play in Alberta. The pace can be a challenge because it is a well-utilized course. The day we played there were six tournaments happening on the two courses. We did experience some minor problems with the bag drop off/valet parking when all the attendants were essentially doing the same tasks. It would work better if individual attendants were assigned to individual tasks for the day; i.e., loading/unloading, parking and retrieving vehicles, bag collection and drop off. We had to go searching for our clubs when they were not taken off the cart and moved to the pickup/dropoff area at the end of the day. Argued with one of the attendants who wondered how someone else had signed for our cart at the beginning of the day (damned if I know; one attendant took our slip when we were preparing for the day, another had it when we returned from changing shoes and clothes; he wanted me to tell him how he got it).

I hit about 90, and by no means a bad golfer, but decent. I played with my husband and can nearly beat him. We played as a pair with another two guys and the marshall (named "YY") had to insult me by telling me to pick up the pace. Our group was not slower than 5 minutes off the pace after nine and the group infront started late with no one infront of them. It pisses me off that the ladyt marshall would assume I'm slow because I'm female. Because of her, she ruined my day. Golf should be fun. I also feel the drive out there waas a waste of my vacation day as well.
The course is nice, but having rude, assumptive comments made to personally attack you is the worse thing that someone can say, let alone a staff member of the course.
If I ever go back, I will make sure YY is not working because I don't need to be around racist and discrimative people.
Like all skewed online reviews, I'm mad enough on to take the time to put this up.

Absolutely beautiful course. Played it this fall, and with snow already capping the surrounding mountains, incredible. As for the course, challenging for the hacker but not overwhelming like some courses.

One of the most spectacular courses visually you will find. Always in great condition, long summer nights allow play until after 9pm. Ball also goes farther at 5,000 feet, so spend time on the range to get your distances. Only challenge is getting a tee time - they book the full year on opening day, so you have to be patient getting through on the day they open. Pace of play can be slow, but they have very active marshalls that push if you fall behind.
