Golf In Whistler During The Summer

Aug 18, 2007
Whistler, British Columbia is a thriving town of about 10,000 permanent residents. Whistler's population can swell to over 40,000 during peak months.

The Whistler community represents a mix of residents from athletes and entrepreneurs to artists. The Whistler lifestyle is a unique balance of recreational pursuits, artistic endeavors, business development and environmental sustainability creating a vibrant energy for residents and visitors alike.

It's rare to find a Whistler resident without an active lifestyle. Many international travellers come to seek employment on the mountain, in the shops, hotels and restaurants.

The idyllic existence of active, outdoor pursuits surrounded by pristine nature and some of the best shopping and restaurants around is hard to resist and many fall in love with the Whistler lifestyle and decide to stay. There are some "visitors" who have lived here for generations.

Whistler has all the services of any major metropolitan urban centre. There are schools, community centres, cinemas, award-winning restaurants, markets, offices, police, a library, health centre, municipal hall, museum, theatre and public transit to serve the needs of a lively and growing population. Many home owners in Whistler choose to rent their whistler properties to guests who come from all over the world to see this beautiful corner of Canada.

It is a destination known around the world for its spectacular mountains, unsurpassed skiing, limitless outdoor adventures, charming alpine village and now its golf. There was a time when Whistler was really just known for its skiing conditions and terrain, summer used to be the off season. Not any more! This picturesque valley, surrounded by immense, snow-covered peaks, pristine lakes and glacier-fed streams, is home to four of Canada's top 100 golf courses. Palmer, Nicklaus, Trent Jones Jr., and Cupp have each created masterpieces in this magnificent setting.

The spectacular drive northward from course 1 to course 8 (known as the great 8) takes you a long way and the sights, tees and greens of this beautiful region offer plenty of opportunities. Driving time between the starter course at Furry Creek, designed by one of the world's leading golf course architects, and the finishing hole at Pemberton takes 90 minutes by car. Along the way you will pass beautifully scenic surroundings, snow capped mountains and lush, green surroundings.

What makes golfing in Whistler so excellent is the combination of award winning courses which offer unique views at each hole, meandering drives through pristine woodlands, lakes, rivers and rolling hills.

The array of courses means there is something on offer to keep the most ardent golf fans happy and courses to test all levels of ability. Courses like the Nicklaus North Golf & Country Club became famous by hosting the Export a Skins game, as well as winning best Canadian course in the late 1990's. Its practice facility, spacious clubhouse and shop and Jacks Grill and Patio have made this course a favorite amongst locals and visitors.

The courses 5 sets of tees offer awesome views from any angle and all holes except for 3 contain water features making the course a challenging one. Others famous course designers include Arnold Palmer's 'The Whistler Golf Club', a challenging course as one would expect, and featuring 9 lakes and 2 creeks. After a days golfing, players can relax in the 50 seat bar and grill over looking the 18th hole.
