Building this masterpiece was no easy feat - It took 50 teams of horses and 200 men working together for a year in order to clear the land of boulders and debris to prepare it for what would become one of Canada's premiere golf courses. Since the opening of the mountain golf course in 1925, this jewel set deep in the heart of the Canadian Rockies has been the setting of unforgettable memories for all of those who come to play.
Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge initiated a restoration project in 1994 to return this legendary Canada golf course back to its initial layout. Using Thompson's original blueprints from 1924, the main focus of the project was spent on restoring the bunkers and tee boxes in an effort to recreate the fundamental design.
In 2015, we celebrated the 90th Anniversary of the course. A small ceremony was held for the occasion with many of the long term Members of the Jasper Park Golf Club. To mark the occasion, the Jasper Museum had an exhibit for the Summer with many interesting items and photos that brought back memories from all of the decades past. To open the Exhibit there was a night of storytelling and reminiscing about the years past. Among the speakers were local historians, the son of long term Superintendent Jack Milligan who brought many of his father’s items including his annual logs of all that went on each season over his long and storied career.
