From their interactive tournament software to their click-to-order food and beverage solution, Gallus Golf continues to evolve and be on the forefront of the ultimate golf experience, which aligns well with Fairmont’s attention to customer service.
Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, Fairmont Banff Springs, and Fairmont Chateau Whistler offer a variety of activities and luxury amenities such as fine dining, ski, spa, pool and others; however their apps will have a golf-centric focus. These clubs plan to utilize features such as booking tee times, golf GPS, interactive leaderboards, club events notifications, and direct food & beverage ordering- all via their custom apps.
Gallus Golf’s Kyle Youngkin says, “It’s always wonderful to join forces with a brand like Fairmont, as their vision and expectations tend to produce the highest quality of content for their guests to enjoy. We’ll provide their golfers the ability to book tee times, have beautiful GPS maps on the courses, and be informed on resort happenings through push notifications and geofence technology once their round is finished. The unique viewpoints of the staff at each property will result in three distinct apps that will enhance their guest experience for years to come.”

About Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge Golf Club
Since the opening of the golf course in 1925, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge has been the setting of unforgettable memories for all of those who come to play. Stanley Thompson, Canada’s master golf course architect, displayed some of the finest work of his career with this design. The 18-hole layout offers elevated tee boxes, dramatic bunkering and holes aligned with distant mountain vistas. He built wide fairways that carve through thick forest, and maintained a partnership with the environment’s natural contours, blending beautiful landscapes with challenging terrain. As a result, few golf courses in the world can match the rugged majesty of this national treasure. In 2016, SCOREGolf Magazine ranked it the No. 3 golf course in Canada and ranked Jasper Park Lodge as Canada’s top golf resort.
About Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Club
Fairmont Banff Springs’ Stanley Thomson Golf Course is one of the most celebrated golf courses in North America. Opened in 1911 as a nine-hole course laid out by Bill Thomson, a Scottish expatriate who apprenticed under Old Tom Morris at St. Andrews, the Banff Springs Golf Course was expanded to an 18-hole course by Donald Ross in 1924. But it was Stanley Thompson, Canada’s most significant and successful golf architect, who created the layout as it plays today. Thompson’s design opened in 1928 and demonstrates his appreciation of traditional links golf courses while emphasizing the subtleties of the mountain landscape. Over the course of 90 years, trees have matured, longer tee boxes have been added, and the rotation has changed since the original Stanley Thompson course opened in 1928, but thankfully, the layout itself remains a diligent custodian of the architect’s timeless design. Careful restoration programs ensure that the course remains as Thompson originally envisioned. And, though overshadowed, the Tunnel Mountain nine-hole course is a worth companion to the Thompson Course. The Tunnel Mountain Course offers spectacular views, excellent conditions and a truly enjoyable mountain golf experience.
