How To: Golf in Whistler

Tucked in between the mountains, lakes and forests, Whistler’s golf courses boast some of the best views in the resort. Tee off early as mist rises from the greens or put in a late-afternoon round with a leisurely patio session after – however you play, golf is a great way to get a healthy dose of fresh air, peek at the mountains and maybe even see some wildlife:

Plan your round with essential advice for golfing in Whistler – beers, bears, hazards and fashion tips.

What’s New for 2016:

All the courses have returned from winter in great shape, and early season conditions are some of the best in recent years. There’s always something new to keep avid golfers returning – this year Big Sky Golf Club is opening an additional five par 3 holes for beginner and intermediate players while the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club is introducing a new fleet of carts. Nicklaus North has undergone minor tweaks on-course, focusing more on the return of events such as Craft Your Golf, where players can enjoy a selection of craft beer served on-course. The Whistler Golf Club has seen major renovations and a new partnership with Nike to have the second Nike Golf shop in Canada as well as an array of the latest equipment (as used by the pros) ready to be customized to your specifications in the Nike Fitting Centre.

Nikkey got her start in Whistler as an outdoor guide and the habit of talking about the place (whether her audience is listening or not) has clearly stuck. Whistler’s general laid-back lifestyle and immediate access to fun is what’s kept her around. When not hanging out on the Whistler Insider team Nikkey works as a freelance creative for outdoor and wellness brands. Nikkey’s favourite Whistler animal is the marmot- she just wants to pinch those fluffy cheeks! (but never would because she respects wildlife and really likes having her fingers attached to her hands.)
