Chateau Whistler Golf Club
A Whistler favorite
In my book, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler is every bit the top-notch Canadian mountain golf experience that the Fairmont Banff Springs and the Fairmont Jasper Park offer, minus the history. The two Stanley Thompson icons have about 80 years of history on their side, but the Fairmont Chateau Whistler is comparable in its beauty and routing. There is no better view than watching your ball hang in the air against a backdrop of pines and evergreens in Whistler.
Creeks, rocks and uphill holes constantly challenge players, more than sheer length. If I had to choose one round in Whistler before my death bed, this would be it.
