Review:

Chateau Whistler Golf Course is a Robert Trent Jones Design located minutes from the village. It also features the David Leadbetter teaching academy and a number of outstanding resorts around its property. It is frequented by players from all over the world as it provides Whistler's most mountainous feel of all the surrounding courses. Huge elevation changes, tree-lined fairways and beautiful scenery are provided the entire way around. The toughest holes are on the front as you play a number of uphill shots. The highlight is the beautiful par 3 8th, with the green protected by a lake and bunker on the left and a rocky hill framing the right side. An accurate tee shot will give you an opportunity to one putt, and walk away with a birdie on the best par 3 on the course. The holes challenge you to a variety of shots and will test you club selection and ability to judge up and down hill distances. The greens are quick with a variety of undulations that make approach shots key on some hole locations. The toughest hole on the course is the par 4 3rd, uphill all the way with a creek running through the left side of the fairway and crossing through the front of the green. A well placed tee-shot will leave you a long iron to a large undulating green. Par is an excellent score and a big number is very possible. One of the unique features of the Chateau Whistler Golf Club is the number of bears LIVING on the course. I have played 2 rounds and have seen 4 black bears, an amazing sight! It's a great course to play as it offers the spectacular scenery of the Canadian Rockies. Mike Stefan
