Nutrients for Life Foundation 10th Annual Golf Tournament

Tuesday, August 22, 2017: Renowned for its panoramic beauty, The Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course is situated in Banff National Park, a mile high in the Canadian Rockies. With breathtaking views in every direction, it is a captivating and challenging course. Amateurs and professionals alike are constantly amazed by its sense of difficulty. The optical illusions created by the mountains towering overhead may deceive the eye of even the most skilled player. Designed by world-renowned golf architect Stanley Thompson in 1928, the original 18-hole course was later complemented by the construction of an adjoining 9 holes, designed by Cornish and Robinson and opened in 1989; thereby completing this championship layout.
