Nicklaus North Golf Course

Nicklaus North is the second golf course in Canada designed by Jack Nicklaus, and of the 150+ courses he designed worldwide, it was the first course to which Jack gave his namesake. 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.

Course Features

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.

Table Nineteen Lakeside Eatery

Table Nineteen offers outstanding food, unparalleled views, great value and exceptional service. Table Nineteen is authentically Whistler — open, fun, creative — casually elegant and welcoming to everyone. Located alongside glacier fed Green Lake and set against the Coast Mountain range, our location showcases Whistler’s spectacular natural environment. It is the Whistler we all love.

During the golf season, May through early October, Table Nineteen provides one of the most idyllic spots in all of Whistler to grab a bite and enjoy a beverage. Our 4000 sq. ft. patio is one of the most stunning in all of Whistler. Relax and enjoy the lakeside views, aquatic life, the odd roaming bear, golfers teeing off on the 16th hole and the Harbour Air seaplanes taking off and landing from Whistler’s only "airport".

All clubhouse amenities are open daily during golf season, from dawn to dusk. Reservations are highly recommended.
