First up, the top 5:

  1. Cabot Cliffs, N.L.
  2. Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, Alta.
  3. Cabot Links, N.L.
  4. Fairmont Banff Springs, Alta.
  5. Cape Breton Highland Links, N.S.

As always, it was the mountain courses of Alberta and the seaside courses of the Maritimes that earned the top spot. We say fair enough, but we’re also interested in some of the other spots on this list. For example, the cheapest course on the list is Tarandowah, which is located in Avon, Ontario and only costs $67.80 for a tee time.

Meanwhile, the second cheapest course is actually located in Saskatchewan. Located in Waskesiu Lake, the Waskesiu golf course only costs $68 to get out to.
