One of the pictures in my vintage c. 1940 Jasper National Park postcard folder (introduced here) shows the famous Jasper Park Lodge golf course.
The historic picture depicts the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge golf course in the foreground, Lake Beauvert at right and Pyramid Mountain in the background.
To see a contrast, pictured below is a modern photo of this scene on the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge website gallery. Is it me or all of the same tall trees in both pictures? Could be.
The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge golf course often makes it to the top of the list from various people and organizations who rate the top golf resorts in Canada, North America and the world.
Learn more about the golf course on Fairmont’s website who says this of their course:
- “It’s hard to imagine a course that hugs snow-capped mountains, meanders past glacial-fed lakes and through a wildlife corridor featuring elk, caribou, bears and wolves.”
