Each of the holes here is patterned after the design of a famous architect. The penultimate hole at Architects honors Stanley Thompson, who was Canada's greatest golf architect. Two of his best designs were Jasper Park and Banff Springs, both in the Canadian Rockies.

Thompson's trademark was his bunkering. The 200-yard 17th here shows his ability to build large, rhythmic bunkers that are in proportion with the natural surroundings.
