WHEN you come to Banff be prepared for magnificent scenery ... for
cosmopolitan smartness and for an ideal mountain hotel. Banff, in
the heart of the Canadian Rockies, is the mile-high playground of
North America, and one of the most spectacular settings in the world.
Cradled by five mountains—Cascade, Sulphur, Rundle, Stoney Squaw
and Inglismaldie—and shadowed by a hundred others, Banff is vivid in
its natural beauty. It is the headquarters of Banff National Park—a Canadian
Government protected domain of 2,585 square miles of mountains, glaciers,
forests, streams and lakes.
Visitors from many lands mingle on the streets, with feather-crested
Indians, cowboys with ten-gallon hats, scarlet-coated troopers of the Royal
Canadian Mounted Police, and park wardens. Trail Riders and pack ponies
come and go.
The castle-like Banff Springs Hotel is the center of the social life of
this mountain playground. Its hospitality, attractive accommodation,
celebrated Canadian Pacific cuisine, and recreational advantages have
made it world-famous.
Golf - And Everything Else
Banff has so many opportunities for superlative recreation that it is difficult
to catalogue them all. Golf on picturesque fairways and velvet greens
. . . tennis on keen, fast courts at Banff Springs Hotel . . . swimming in the
hotel's cool and warm sulphur water pools.
Fly fishing may be found in the Spray River, adjacent to Banff Springs
Hotel, and in neighboring streams and lakes. Experienced guides are
available for trips. Sky line trail riding, mountain climbing and hiking
are exceedingly popular.
Motor roads are first class, with numerous short trips, and longer ones
over the "Kicking Horse Trail" to Yoho National Park, or the famous
Banff-Windermere Highway through Kootenay National Park. Lake Louise
and Emerald Lake are reached by excellent roads, and the spectacular
Columbia Icefield Highway from Lake Louise gives easy access to the
great Columbia Icefield with its hundreds of glaciers.
Banff is famous for its Hot Springs as well as for its scenery. It has
five healthful sulphur springs, with bath houses and swimming pools.
Banff Springs Hotel
is a Canadian Pacific hotel—one of the chain of fourteen
hotels from the Atlantic to the Pacific owned and operated
by the "World's Greatest Travel System." Open from early
June to September.
Ask for information about the Trail Riders of the Canadian
Rockies and the Sky Line Hikers Camp.

Dancing at Banff Springs Hotel
BANFF GOLF COURSE
Riding—Tennis—Swimming
There are no "golf-widows" at Banff Springs
Hotel—there's too much to do for those who
don't accompany their men folk on the
fairways! Swimmers have two pools—indoor
championship style with temperature-controlled air and water—outdoor landscaped
plunge in warmed, faintly sulphur-tinged
water piped from the famous hot springs.
Riders have many beautiful bridle paths to
choose from, including a scenic tour of the
golf course.
Hard-packed, fast and true, the well-tended
tennis courts, like other Banff activities, are
close to the comforts of the hotel.
In the hotel Mount Stephen Hall, famous
for its cloister walk, the Riverview and Garden
Lounges, where log fires burn brightly on
cool evenings, the Library, Writing Rooms
and shops offer diversion, interest and the
cultivation of new friendships.
More complete information is available
from any Canadian Pacific office or the

SURROUNDED by massive peaks, the Banff Springs Golf Course, constructed by the Canadian
Pacific, is a kingly setting for the Royal and Ancient Game. Mount Rundle, Sulphur Mountain
and the snowy peaks of the Fairholme Range tower above the course. Stanley Thompson of
Toronto, internationally known golf architect, arranged the route of play, the location of tees, and
the selection of greens to offer picturesque vistas of the Bow and Spray rivers, and the surrounding
mountains.
The course measures 6,704 yards. Its length alone challenges the ambitious player. There are
three sets of tees giving it elasticity to accommodate all types of golfers. In addition, the bunkers and
fairways were planned to give three optional routes of play. The indifferent golfer may select a
leisurely round-about way, which may not often result in birdies but still gives a sporting chance
for par. The ambitious player may select the bold, more direct route. The wary one will hesitate, for
any deviation from the "straight and narrow" is promptly penalized. The optional routes have been
ingeniously planned; they are truly mental hazards.
The holes are admirably balanced. Every shot you know will be called on—testing almost
every club in your bag.    The sequence of the holes obviates any similarity of shots.
THE   GOLF   COURSE   AT   BANFF
(From a painting by Adam Sherriff Scott)
The short holes are carefully interspersed in each nine. Every type of "one shooter" will be
found at Banff Springs. The 12th is an exceptional hole of 138 yards, called the "Papoose." The
green is surrounded by the waters of the Bow River, with the blue of the river seen through the
shapely spruce and firs. Number Eight is another testing water hole of 175 yards, across a miniature
lake called "The Devil's Cauldron."
The long player has ample opportunity. Holes of 400 yards and more test the par golfer,
and optional long carries are available and alluring for any one equal to the task.
Number Seven, 513 yards, is unusual, practically carved out of the mountain-side. It is called
"Gibraltar," because the cliffs of Mount Rundle face sheer like the famous rock itself.

There is a fully-equipped pro-shop at the Clubhouse where good caddies are always available.
The greens are of tested grasses, to ensure uniform putting surfaces. The putting areas
have been modelled to fit the required shot, long par fours having more generous areas than
iron shots.
The Clubhouse is down a short path from the hotel lobby on a sheer cliff where the Bow and
Spray rivers join. West from the Clubhouse and first tee, is a rocky 600 foot gorge, with tumbling
Bow Falls at the end. To the right, the fast flowing Spray River hustles down through a Y-shaped
valley heavily wooded to the sky line. The first tee is on a precipice, some fifty feet above the Spray
River, with a carry, if straight, of 50 yards to the fairway beyond, which is reached by means of a
rustic bridge. The fairway is cleared through pine and fir trees. It is difficult to keep "the eye on
the ball" amid such surroundings!
The Home hole of 425 yards is a wonderful finish to a wonderful round, with a view up
the valley to the slopes of Sulphur Mountain, where Banff Springs Hotel lifts its massive walls
and gleaming turrets to the sky. The green is heavily bunkered and flanked by the Bow River,
400 yards from the falls. From the 18th Green, you recross the Spray River to the Clubhouse lawn,
and the pleasant 19th hole.
