Chateau Whistler Golf Club
Up and Downhill
There are many elevation changes that combined with the course elevation makes club selection a challenge. The greens were in great shape but reading the greens was a challenge. If you pick the recommended tees for your handicap you should enjoy the round. The views from the course are spectular.

Gorgeous Views & Great Staff
My husband and I were in Whistler for a few nights on vacation and decided to go ahead and golf while we were in town. We couldn't have been happier with our experience at Chateau Whistler. We rented clubs (brand new TaylorMade sets) and played an early morning (7:20) round just the two of us. We breezed around in under 3.5 hours and barely saw anyone else on the course. The views are amazing with little to no development on the surrounding property. I've never commented on a half-way house before but wow, impressive! Also, can't say enough nice things about the staff. From the proshop staff, snack bar, half-way, cart staff... everyone was super friendly. We would definitely play this course again if we get a chance to return to Whistler.

A tough day on the greens
This course is very challenging with beautiful scenery. Its standout feature is defiantly the greens, There is a lot of break on all of them and on some of the holes you wont be able to see the break on the greens but trust there is. Make sure to pack an extra sleeve of balls . All in all just a fantastic course.

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.
