Whistler  boasts three world-class championship golf courses, each with its own character and charm. The golfing season runs mid-May–October, so in late spring you can ski in the morning and golf in the afternoon. All the courses detailed below have rentals, dining facilities, and off-season/twilight rates.
Designed by Arnold Palmer, Whistler Golf Club (between Whistler Village and Alta Lake, 604/932-3280 or 800/376-1777, $159) offers large greens and narrow wooded fairways over a challenging 6,676-yard par-72 layout.
On the other side of the village, Chateau Whistler Golf Club (Blackcomb Way, 604/938-2092 or 888/938-2092, $195) takes advantage of the rugged terrain of Blackcomb Mountain’s lower slopes through holes that rise and fall with the lay of the land.
The Jack Nicklaus-designed Nicklaus North course (just north of Whistler Village, 604/938-9898, $175) is an open layout holding numerous water hazards. It boasts 360-degree mountain vistas and plays to a challenging 6,900 yards from the back markers.
