Big Sky Golf and Country Club

Big Sky is beautifully situated at the base of Mount Currie in Pemberton, a twenty-five minute drive north of Whistler. This 7,001-yard Bob Cupp design is on Golf Digest's Top 30 Golf Courses in Canada list. The lush course has a quiet, pastoral feel. It’s relatively flat and a joy to walk. Enjoy playing smooth, bentgrass fairways, green sites featuring closely mown chipping areas, and interesting slopes. Mount Currie creates a scenic mountain backdrop. After a round, sample from the West Coast contemporary menu at Fescues Restaurant and Patio.

Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club

Just a short walk from the doors of the stellar The Fairmont Chateau Whistler, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club is a thrilling mountain course with a well-deserved 4.5-star rating by Golf Digest. Expect impressive elevation changes, scenic tees and greens surrounded by wildflowers and creeks as you play. Close out the round with a string of holes that descend through the forest. Afterwards, enjoy a quick bite at the course or head back to The Fairmont Chateau Whistler for a memorable dining experience in The Grill Room, known for fantastic chops, steaks and seafood.

Nicklaus North Golf Course

Nicklaus North, located five minutes from the village along the emerald waters of Green Lake, is resort golf at its finest. The Jack Nicklaus design allows handicap players can move to the gold tees where it stretches to 6,961 yards and is a stern test. The layout here features peaceful, gently bending holes that follow the valley floor. The walkable course also incorporates fir trees and a challenging finale along the shores of Green Lake. After sinking a birdie putt on 18, hit the largest lakeside patio in Whistler at The Den. Enjoy West Coast cuisine and panoramic mountain views.

Whistler Golf Club

Start with Whistler’s first course - the Arnold Palmer-designed Whistler Golf Club. At the heart of the village, it's a walkable, playable course with a youthful, energetic vibe. Play through a peaceful valley setting with towering fir and ancient cedar trees leaning into the fairways, or challenge the doglegs with gutsy drives that cut corners and shorten the 6,722-yard route. Avoid the nine ball-hungry lakes and white-sand bunkers. Overall, this is a mature, parkland-style course that will test every part of a golfer’s game. Post-round, hit the patio at Palmer's Gallery for a pint of local beer with fish and chips.
