Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club

4.5 Star Rating
Robert Trent Jones Jr

Distinctly different from the other Whistler courses, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club offers classic "mountain golf at its finest". Carved from the side of Blackcomb Mountain, this Robert Trent Jones Jr. design features an elevation change of over 400 feet and dramatic elevated views of the Whistler Valley. Just a short stroll from the Fairmont Resort, this wonderful course - winner of Golf Digest's Best New Canadian Course Award in 1993 - will guide you along playable and receptive fairways surrounded by massive granite outcroppings, glacier-melt creeks and majestic Douglas Firs. With four sets of tee boxes, all lovers of the game can comfortably play this course. Yet at over 6,600 yards from the gold tees - with a slope of 145 - the club lives up to the resort's reputation of accommodating any, and every, guest. GPS computerized, satellite-linked system on each power cart relays yardage to pins, hazards and even messages to the digital display screen. No golf heroics are called for; no chasms have to be carried here, it's nature's and Jones's art that deceives.
