Legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus says modestly of Nicklaus North, “The idea was to build a course that people could enjoy.” From the first hole on, it is clear that’s an understatement. The conditioning at Nicklaus North golf course reflects the standards set by Jack Nicklaus himself, so much so that he gave the course his name. Having been voted Best New Canadian Course of 1996 by Golf Digest magazine, and host of two major televised events, the 1997 Canadian Skins Game and the 1998 Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf, gives Nicklaus North a unique signature of quality.
“I agree with what Nicklaus says about the course being enjoyable”, however Gordon Enright of Victoria, BC cautioned, “golfers should be aware housing comes into view on the back nine”. Gordon went on to say, “that even with this in mind, we always include Nicklaus North in our Whistler golf package.”
Combined with the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club and Big Sky Golf and Country Club, the three courses make for a perfect Whistler golf trip.
