WELCOME TO SILVERTIP RESORT Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains with 360 degrees of spectacular mountain views, Silvertip Resort promises to provide the finest mountain golf and event setting anywhere in the world. With its setting amongst some of the most beautiful mountains in the Rockies, Silvertip offers a haven from the world. Ideally located high on the Lady MacDonald bench on the “sunny side” of the Bow Valley, Silvertip has a bird’s eye view of Canmore, Alberta and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding Rocky Mountains. Just an hour west of Calgary and 10 minutes east of Banff National Park, Silvertip provides its guests with spectacular views, stunning décor with elegant table settings and world class recreation. The cuisine is Mountain Wilderness Fusion – local fare and attitude paired with the finest ingredients and recipes from around the globe.When the game of golf is played on a course carved out of original Rockies terrain, something fundamental changes. There is a mystery built in. Not just the practical question of where the ball will land, but how will you ever return to urban golf after a magical mountain golfing experience like the one at Silvertip. Designed by world renowned architect and Canmore resident Les Furber, the course plays from a very playable 5,089 yards to an awesome championship 7,140 yards, with over 600 feet of elevations change, making it the single most breathtaking mountain course in the world for literally any level of play.

Course Set Up Not only will you find that Silvertip boasts the best conditioned golf course in the Canadian Rockies, but you’ll also see we’ve taken the guess work out of tournament planning for you. Our team has the perfect course set up tailored to your specific event requirements. Our recommended style of tournament play is the “Shamble” format. This provides the ultimate in pace of play and enjoyment for golfers of all ability levels. In a Shamble, all players tee off, then move to the preferred drive and complete the hole with their own ball from that location, counting only the best one or two scores per hole. A perfect blend of Scramble and Best Ball formats rolled in to one simple package.

TOURNAMENT START FORMATS OUR SHOTGUN TEAM SPECIALIZES IN CATERING TO YOUR EVERY NEED. FROM ARRIVAL TO DEPARTURE, WE TAKE CARE OF IT ALL – THAT’S OUR COMMITMENT TO SERVICE BEYOND. Full Shotgun Start With a Shotgun Start all groups of players tee off simultaneously from different holes on the course. If there are more than 18 foursomes in the group then teams will double up at a hole as A&B teams. A shotgun start will allow players to complete their 18 holes very close to the same time. In 1956 the head pro at Walla Walla Country Club in Walla Walla, Washington fired a shotgun to sound the start of play. This is purportedly the first time a tournament used such a starting format. Today, a siren or specific time is used so that golfers all over the course can hear the signal to start. This starting format is popular for charity events, as everyone starts and finishes at the same time. This allows for a post-event meal where the prizes can be awarded. It is convenient for large group and corporate tournaments as well as events where the participants arrive at the venue together on a bus.

If your group is smaller and cannot fill all 18 holes for a shotgun start we will pair you with another tournament where possible to allow both groups to enjoy the shotgun format. Modified Shotgun Ideal for smaller groups who still want the benefits of a Shotgun Start, but cannot justify closing the entire course for the duration of their tournament. The Modified Shotgun Start employs the same starting principles as the Shotgun Start, however foursomes will tee off from holes 1,18,17,16 and so on for as many holes as required. This allows the golf course to open the tee box to non-tournament golfers once the tournament has played through hole #1. Tee-Time Groups (16 to 39 players) Tee time groups start their game of golf under the traditional consecutive tee time format running on ten-minute intervals and is a perfect format for groups of 16 to 39 players.

RECOMMENDED PLAY FORMATS Shamble (Silvertip recommends this format)

Scr amble (recommended for pace of play)

A shamble is a type of golf tournament that combines elements of a scramble with elements of regular stroke play.

The Scramble is one of the primary forms of tournament play for golf associations, charity events and the like. A scramble is usually played with 4-person teams, but 2-person scrambles are popular, too. At a 2-person scramble, handicaps are usually applied; at a 4-person scramble, handicaps are usually not applied.

Like in a scramble, all members of a team (usually four) tee off and the best ball of the four tee shots is selected. All players move their balls to the spot of the best ball. From this point, the hole is played out at stroke play, with all members of the team playing their own ball into the hole. Shambles should be played with full handicaps to make sure weaker players contribute to the team score. (Scoring, as with scrambles, can be done any number of ways, such as using one low ball per hole as the team score, or using two or three low balls per hole. Shamble scoring is only limited by the tournament director’s imagination.)

In a scramble, each player tees off on each hole. The best of the tee shots is selected and all players play their second shots from that spot. The best of the second shots is determined, then all play their third shots from that spot, and so on until the ball is holed.
