Golf Course
Whistler has become one of the premier golf destinations in Canada and the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club is most certainly one of the reasons why. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. and opened in 1993, the par 72, 18-hole course offers a golf opportunity unmatched in the region. Carved out of the slopes of the Coast Mountain range, with elevation changes of more than 400 ft. overall, this magnificent golf course is generous to the eye and provides enough fun and challenge for everyone. Remember to bring your camera as well as your clubs to enjoy this course to its fullest!
