WHISTLER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Canada – It does not get a whole lot better than the Whistler golf courses, if great golf courses surrounded by beautiful scenery are your thing. After a 90-minute drive from Vancouver, past mountain and ocean views, is the village of Whistler.
“Being from the Okanagan, and having golf courses like Predator Ridge, Okanagan Golf Club, Harvest Golf Club and others on our doorstep, friends always ask why we love to take our group to Whistler every year”, says Shane Archibald. “Whistler is a great golf destination for us when the heat really strikes in the Okanagan. The Whistler courses, particularly Nicklaus North and Whistler Golf Club are very playable for the wives, and that is a very good thing”, laughed Archibald.

Jack Nicklaus wanted to build a course that people can enjoy. But that is an understatement. The conditioning at Nicklaus North reflects the standards set by Jack Nicklaus himself, so much so that he gave the course his own name.
In a place where superlatives to describe the scenery must be doled out carefully lest they get used up too quickly, Chateau Whistler without doubt earns the term breathtaking.
