“The announcement of SCOREGolf’s Top 100 is always an interesting read with some incredible Canadian courses named that highlight the works of such notable designers as Stanley Thompson, Rod Whitman, Doug Carrick and more,” wrote Chris Andrews, General Manager, on Wildstone’s website. “Many of these beautiful courses with storied pasts, hosts of prestigious events and home to legends of Canadian golf seem larger than life.”
Opened in 2011, Wildstone is Canada’s first Gary Player Black Knight designed course in Canada. It measures over 7,100 yards and has the advantage of being located in the highlands overlooking the city of Cranbrook. Stunning views of the Rocky Mountains are visible from course start to finish.
