Par3’s are often the most fun and/or frustrating holes on the course. They’re shorter, but not necessarily easier to play. A good Par 3 lures us in, gives us a reason to go for it and shoot for the pin – for better or for worse.

With four world-class golf courses in the Whistler area we have a lot of Par 3’s so a few weeks ago The Whistler Insider editor Feet Banks hooked up with the crew from Heli Video Pros who flew their remote-controlled heli-camera over one signature Par 3 at each of Whistler’s top courses. We call it Hole Browser – Whistler’s Signature Par 3’s. Enjoy.


Feet Banks moved to Whistler at age 12 so his parents could live the dream and ski as much as possible. He ended up living it too. After leaving home Feet did a few good stints in warmer climates and 4 years of writing school before returning to the mountains to make ski movies, hammer out a journalism career and avoid the 9-5 lifestyle as long as possible. He’s been a hay farmer, a hole digger, a magazine editor and has a jump named after him on Blackcomb Mountain, Feet’s Air. It’s tiny.
