Beyond just a championship course, the St. Eugene Golf Course fairways each boast their own spectacular perspective. From the rolling woodlands of the Rocky Mountain Trench to driving alongside the fleeting St. Mary River and the dramatic allure of Fisher Peak, it is a golf experience unlike any other.
Considered one of the best golf course architects in Canada, the St. Eugene Golf Course is proudly designed by acclaimed architect, Les Furber. Although he has been behind golf courses as far away as Switzerland and Lithuania, his specialty has been western Canadian golf courses. He brings his distinctive style to St. Eugene with beautiful, white sand bunkers, undulating greens, holes aligned with breathtaking mountain peaks and a course emphasis on shot value.
The philosophy behind Les Furber’s designs may be best stated with the following quotation from the Les Furber Design and GDS Golf Design Services website:
“Our reputation has been built on the foundation of creativity and originality. With our designs, you will find that golf strategy and shot values are paramount. We maintain a strong balance between playability and challenge; playable but not penal, challenging but not intimidating. The design approach is innovative, visionary and with today’s ever-changing ecological regulations, in tune environmentally.”

We’re proud to have Ktunaxa names for each of the 18 golf holes. Graeme Douglas, Manager of our Hotel & Golf Facilities, worked with a Ktunaxa Nation Elder Advisory Committee to name each of the holes in the unique Ktunaxa traditional language. The beautiful signs, cut from pine beetle-damaged wood, each have phonetic and English translations as well as stories from our culture, present and past. Completing the course is a fun way to learn a few words from one of the most unique and complex languages in the world.
