Nicklaus North Golf Course

Nicklaus North is only the second Canadian course designed by Jack Nicklaus and, of the 150 courses he’s designed worldwide, this is the only course to which Jack has been compelled to add his name. Designed with an awareness and sensitivity towards the area’s natural habitat and nestled between Green Lake and the River of Golden Dreams, Nicklaus North features impressive glacial mountain views.

Opening Dates 2015: Course expected to open early May (dependent on weather and course conditions).

Nicklaus North offers five sets of tees to give every level of golfer an ideal sense of challenge and enjoyment. The full-length driving range features grass tees and six target greens, perfect for improving shots of any length. A full-size chipping and putting green as well as a practice bunker to cover every aspect of the short game are also available.
