TEE OFF THIS SUMMER IN WHISTLER

We’re officially into golf season in Whistler and May just keeps throwing us all curve-balls in the weather department! It has been chilly the past couple weeks with record amounts of snow on the mountain making the last few days of skiing and riding on Whistler Blackcomb pretty exceptional. I don’t think anyone expected pow days this far into May but it was a welcome surprise and a great way to end an incredible season.

Back to golf – I can’t say that I have a favourite course in Whistler, I spread the love! There are perks of all the courses so I’ll give you a quick rundown of them all. If you’re planning on visiting Whistler this summer, now is the time to be booking your accommodation and tee times as courses are popular! If you need help with your BC Summer Road Trip, Tourism Whistler is a great resource.

Bonus – Furry Creek. If you’re coming up from Vancouver, you can start your golf weekend off in Furry Creek. There’s a reason why it’s known as “British Columbia’s most scenic golf course” – surrounded by Howe Sound Bay, this course is a great way to kick off any golf trip on your way to Whistler.

Looking for a course with slightly slower pace or just want to try somewhere new? Check out my recent blog post on golf courses in Pemberton, they boasts two courses and it’s just a 25 minute ride from Whistler.
