When you think about Whistler, skiing and hiking come to mind, but it’s also home to three quality golf courses: Whistler Golf Club, an Arnold Palmer design, Nicklaus North Golf Club, I sure hope I don’t have to say who designed that one, and The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club, a Robert Trent Jones II design up at the base of the mountains. This ones wild, as one would expect in the mountains of Western Canada, but it’s even more wild because of the Trent Jones Jr. designs, there hasn’t been a single easy golf course.
The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club is a fun round of golf, and the best loop up in Whistler. It’s worth playing once, but the terrain is difficult, and I’m not sure I feel the need to go back. That’s not to say it isn’t good, I’m actually quite fond of it, but you will experience everything you need in one round.
It’s funny that it’s rated 50th in Canada because that’s almost exactly where I’d have it. There’s about half of the top 100’s I’ve played above, and half the top 100’s I’ve played below. A good marker for dead centre of the rankings in Canada. Bring your camera, have a few drinks, and enjoy, because they treat you nice at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club, and it’d be a really fun round with friends or family!
