CABOT LINKS LODGE
Inverness, Nova Scotia
The hottest destination in North America, with an understated lodge along the three-year-old Cabot Links and just down the coast from the new Cabot Cliffs 18. Both courses were recently ranked among Golf Digest's World 100 Greatest.
FAIRMONT BANFF (ALBERTA) SPRINGS
In the center of Banff National Park, "the Castle in the Rockies" presides over 27 river-valley holes, 18 of which were designed by Canada's legendary Stanley Thompson.
FAIRMONT JASPER (ALBERTA) PARK LODGE
Another national park resort, this one northwest of Banff, with an equally classic Stanley Thompson layout, though very different than Banff, which accentuates the talent and versatility of the golf architect.
Mont Tremblant, Quebec
Long considered one of Quebec's finest ski resorts, in the past 20 years Mont Tremblant has become a golfer's haven thanks to the Thomas McBroom-designed Le Geant and the Mike Hurdzan/Dana Fry-designed Le Diable courses.
