A perfect golf paradise set alongside the Canadian Rockies Mountains is what the Fairmont Southampton Golf Course is all about. Designed by the famed Theodore Robinson, this 18-hole layout takes advantage of the area’s white sand beaches, mangrove forests, as well as the majestic views of the St. Lawrence River. Since the golf course rests on the grounds of the famous Fairmont Southampton Hotel, aside from having one of the finest golf experiences, guests can also have their fair share of the high-end accommodations and other facilities.
This 2,684-yard par-3 golf gem was created to let golfers experience the new heights in short games. The layout’s spectacular elevation changes resulted to a mandatory use of golf carts until sunset golf. While on play, golfers of all ability levels will come across the 200-feet drop on the course’s first two holes. And adding up to the challenge for each round is the island breeze that has become a definite playing factor since much of the course faces the Atlantic Ocean. In order to go through the well-designed obstacles that include the myriad of bunkers, three tee offerings, and two water hazards, every golfer is required to have the prudent club selection.
The Fairmont Southampton Golf Course has already hosted several golf competitions including the Champions Tour, LPGA Tour, and the PGA Tour. Aside from the finest golf layout, the golf club also offers the complete pro shop, a large practice green, and golf lessons being handled by high-caliber golf instructors. If you want to play at the nearby championship golf courses, the hotel’s dedicated Golf Concierge will help you with the arrangements. So whether it is golf or nature discovery, this place serves as an ideal golf vacation getaway for the entire family.
