Surrounded by rugged Rocky Mountain peaks and wrapped in a lush forest, the Fernie Golf Club is a must-visit course on any golfer's tour.
This 18-hole, Par 70, championship course emphasizes playability. 6,556 yards of immaculate fairways lie beneath a beautiful and spacious clubhouse, where players can enjoy a delicious meal and fabulous views of the valley. Golfers can even catch a glimpse of the legendary Fernie Ghostrider on Mount Hosmer at late afternoon or mid-evening. Luxurious greens, moulding silica sand bunkers and varied terrain are well-suited for beginners as well as the low handicapper.

Fernie Golf Club celebrated 100 years in 2018.
Fernie's rural locale is a boon for animal lovers as moose, deer, elk, coyotes, foxes and even bears are frequently spotted ambling across the course. The FGCC is proud to work towards Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program (ACSP) certification, which helps golf courses develop effective conservation and wildlife enhancement initiatives.
“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. Cart paths often go through wooded areas for additional aesthetic charm. The course is challenging, without being daunting for a mid- to high-handicapper."
"Water comes into play on several holes. 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.”
