About 40 minutes north of Whistler lies a small town of Pemberton, which features a golf course right at the base of Mount Currie. Big Sky, a Bob Cupp and John Fought collaboration, is a big boy golf course for British Columbia at 7001 yards, playing through the natural swamps over some pretty flat land. Big Sky shines in the green complexes, as there is a lot of interesting run offs and collection areas around the golf course.
Big Sky is an interesting round of golf. I find it fairly boring off the tee, yet around the greens it’s a lot of fun. I could only imagine if it ever played firm up in Pemberton, because the golf course would be superb. My vote for the best in the Whistler Area is The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club, but if someone said Big Sky, I wouldn’t be upset. It’s more natural, lay-of-the-land style with better greens. It’s an enjoyable round for the best bang-for-your-buck in Whistler.
