Your Home Course, The Links of GlenEagles
At The Links of GlenEagles you will find a pristine course – lush green fairways, almost 100 bunkers filled with the whitest of sand and exciting changes in elevation. Designer Les Furber carved this course into the rugged foothills just as they run up to the Rocky Mountains. Portions of the course run along a cliff some 200 feet above the Bow River Valley. He used the natural features of the site to create an unparalleled golfing adventure. This championship length par-72 has five par-5s and five par-3s. There are five sets of tees here to test your golfing skills.

Our Architect Les Furber has Transformed Canadian Golf
GDS Golf Design Services Ltd. is located in Canmore, Alberta, Canada in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Established in 1980 by partners Les Furber and Jim Eremko, their design philosophy was influenced in part through their long association with Robert Trent Jones Sr., recognized as the “father” of modern golf course architecture.
Mr. Furber has spearheaded a design team whose portfolio includes a design range of courses from private to public, from resort to municipal and from real estate to executive. Versatility describes GDS.
GDS sports a unique international portfolio, including, in 1991, the first modern day course in the Czech Republic, the first 18 hole course in Cuba as well as courses in the USA, Switzerland and Germany. GDS and Les Furber Design have just recently undertaken a 27 hole project in Lithuania and an 18 hole course in the Czech Republic.
Our reputation has been built on the foundation of creativity and originality. With our designs you will find that golf strategy and shot values are paramount. We maintain a strong balance between playability and challenge; playable but not penal, challenging but not intimidating. The design approach is innovative, visionary and with today’s ever changing ecological regulations, in tune environmentally.
