When players select Banff Springs Golf Course on the seven High Definition Golf simulators at Virtual Sports Zone (VSZ), they’re in for a roller-coaster thrill ride of a round.
The par 71 6,938-yard layout is a panoramic marvel set on the Fairmont Banff Springs Resort property in the heart of Canada’s majestic Rocky Mountains. The tack-sharp High Definition Golf replica version captures the breathtaking views that give players a rush as they approach every shot.
Stanley Thompson, Canada’s legendary golf course architect, designed and created Banff Springs in 1928. The course winds along the Bow River below the snow-capped peaks of Sulphur Mountain and Mount Rundle. Hollywood legends and golf enthusiasts Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Clint Eastwood are counted among the many celebrities that have teed it up in Alberta on Canada’s leading mountain course.
