And so the old pop song goes, “too much of something is bad enough…” This line definitely finds untruth on the Mt Kidd Course of the Kananaskis Country Golf Club in Banff, Alberta, Canada. That, or “too much” is this golf vacation destination‘s definition of “just right”. Either way, nothing comes short or lacking in this paradise in the Canadian Rockies. There’s too much for a golfer to take in, so many things to do, and so much fun to take home they might as well not do anything fun for weeks for it could suffice.
Opened in 1983, this Robert Trent Jones Sr. design sits on a mountain surrounded by majestic granite formations, one from which it was named. Together with its sister course, Mt Lorette, the Kidd Course of the Kananaskis Country Golf Club boasts of breathtaking views and even better playing layout. The valley type course features few elevation changes and crushed granite bunkers. The whole course winds throughout the scenic Kananaskis River and several glacial creeks that both serve as picturesque backdrops and epic natural water hazards. This golf vacation favorite shares the 18th hole with its sister course, and stretches to over 7,000 yards of golf.
For a country like Canada that has been blessed by nature with countless fascinating wonders turned into some of North America’s best golf courses, the Mt Kidd Course of the Kananaskis Country Golf Club does not fall low on the list. And there’s nothing surprising about it, considering how generous it is in challenge, fun, and scenery. With a course this outstanding, there’s not a thing called “too much golf trip” this way either.
