Whistler Golf Club

Whistler Golf Club was chosen by legend Arnold Palmer as the location for his very first Canadian design, and this Whistler golf course has been impressing visitors ever since. The natural contour of the land as well as several daunting lakes make this course a challenge for low handicappers and fair-weather players alike.

The only golf course on the planet to carry the name of its iconic creator, Nicklaus North Golf Course is a 6,908 yard, par-71 masterpiece. Complete with ancient firs, trademark bunkers, and challenging par 3's, these links are a must for anyone who really appreciates golf.

Chateau Whistler Golf Club

Chateau Whistler Golf Club provides a regionally authentic environment complete with granite faces, Douglas firs, and over 400 feet in elevation change. This is mountain golf at its most pristine, voted in 1993 by Golf Digest Magazine as "Canada's Best New Golf Course." Additionally, a David Leadbetter Golf Academy provides top-shelf instruction from some of the sport's most respected names. 

Just 45 minutes south of Whistler, the Robert Muir Graves-designed Furry Creek Golf Club offers 6,001 yards of rugged terrain on the windswept Howe Sound shoreline. This highlight of a 1,036-acre community development opened as a private course in 1993 but switched to a public facility in 1994.

Big Sky Golf and Country Club

Big Sky Golf and Country Club is only a half-hour drive from Whistler and offers a 7,001-yard Robert Cupp-designed course. Set against Mt. Currie, this jaw-dropping club offers breathtaking vistas at every hole. An industry-leading academy also provides instruction, and the main course is complemented by an executive 9-hole course.
