WHISTLER, BC — Canada — Even though Whistler, BC is known as a winter sports destination, did you know it has some amazing golf courses as well? These five courses are perfect family golf stay and play getaways and BC golf enthusiasts who are looking for a challenge.
The Whistler Golf Club
Located in the middle of Whistler Village, the Whistler Golf Club sports a 6722-yard golf course and a lot of adventure for the willing BC golf player.
This BC golf course is not for beginners. With its elevation of 2200ft, the golf ball will travel farther than usual, and the stunning vistas that surround the green may distract you from the perfect shot. Watch for white-tailed deer that may wander on to the course–as well as a mother black bear with her cubs. Rest assured that the staff will take care of any unexpected wildlife visitors so that you can concentrate on your BC golf game.
The Big Sky Golf and Country Club
Just 25 minutes from Whistler, BC, the Big Sky Golf and Country Club definitely lives up to its grandiose name. This spectacular BC golf course is flanked by seven lakes and streams and is overlooked by Mount Currie–you will feel small standing next to it, but don’t let that distract you from your game. Rather, let it fill you with inspiration as you play the par 73 championship BC golf course.
With four sets of tees ranging from 5208 to 7001 yards, the enrapturing scenery is worth the drive out to Big Sky Golf and Country Club for a stay and play golf experience that will leave you breathless!
The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Resort Golf Club
The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Resort provides a relaxed atmosphere in an otherwise busy BC golf tourist town. The golf architect, Robert Trent Jones Jr, made a conscious choice to utilize the natural landscape to shape the flow of the course, which adds to the serenity you will find when you step onto the green. Stone cliffs, Douglas Fir trees, brooks, and ponds dot the natural landscape, but watch for changes in elevation on this par 72 BC golf championship course.
Nicklaus North Golf Club
Set in the middle of a lush valley where bald eagles soar high above and a deep emerald lake hugs the 6925-yard BC golf course, the Nicklaus North brings out the inner nature lover within every golfer. Play the par 71 BC golf course with friends or family, or use the grass tee driving range, or eat in the licensed dining room and lounge. A large patio overlooks the emerald lake for your viewing pleasure. Golf in Whistler has never been the same.
Pemberton Valley Golf and Country Club
Your stay and play golf vacation in Whistler would not be complete without a visit to the Pemberton Valley Golf and Country Club. With 18 holes, this BC golf championship course is great for beginners and for advanced golfers.
