Just minutes from the resort village of Whistler in British Columbia, Canada, lies one of the standout courses in North America – and probably one of the very best golf courses you’ve never heard of.
Nicklaus North, which is part of Golf Whistler resort, one of Canada’s major golf destinations, sits at the base of the majestic Whistler and Blackcomb mountains and along the shores of glacial fed Green Lake.
The course, a Jack Nicklaus design, boasts breathtaking scenery, exceptional guest service, unmatched course conditioning and a tough but fair test of golf.
Running to a respectable 6,961 yards, the course offers five sets of tees and throws up some generous fairways and greens that are large, receptive and impeccably manicured.
An environmentally-conscious project, completed with awareness and sensitivity towards the area’s natural habitat, this course was built to the highest specifications using premium golf course construction technology.
With a brilliant emerald-coloured lake and dotted with majestic fir trees as far as the eye can see, this will likely be one of the most visually striking golf courses you’ll ever set foot on.
Whilst you’ll find as though you’re playing in complete isolation, you’re actually only a few minutes walk from the resort’s downtown, which is populated by homely street cafes and excellent restaurants and bars.
