Top 50 Spotlight: #49, Wildstone Golf Course

Gary Player’s only Canadian golf course resides in the mountainous city of Cranbrook, British Columbia, in the southeast corner of the province, just north of Montana and west of Alberta. While the city in itself is mountainous, the course doesn’t have crazy elevation change. Instead, the course occupies rolling hills at the base of the mountains, giving you the best of both worlds: interesting land with views of the mountains. The 7127 yard, par 71 course features a rating of 72.5 and a slope of 123.
