Whistler, British Columbia is known as a premier mountain sports destination. But many golf travelers overlook its courses when planning summer and fall golf getaways. That’s a big mistake. The natural beauty of the Canadian Rockies and the charm of Fairmont Chateau Whistler is one of the world’s great travel experiences.
“When it comes to selecting a golf destination, Whistler really has everything you could want,” said Nick Droulis, director of golf at Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club. “It is easy to access with flights from around the world coming into Vancouver. The 90-minute drive from the airport here is one of the most beautiful in the world. We have an incredible selection of courses from which to choose. Our summertime weather is nearly ideal, and in the peak of summer, the sun shines so much of the day, you easily can play until 9 or 10 p.m. in the evening.
“Plus, off the golf course, Whistler is second to none in terms of shopping, dining and nightlife. It truly is an outstanding place for a golf vacation.”
To showcase the destination, this summer and fall Fairmont Chateau Whistler is featuring the Whistler BC Golf Travel Package that provides accommodations for two nights at the renowned Fairmont Chateau Whistler resort and three rounds of golf per person. Guests can choose to play at Chateau Whistler Golf Club, Nicklaus North Golf Course, Whistler Golf Club or Big Sky Golf Club.
In addition, when guests book their golf rounds at Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club, they receive unlimited access to the Fairmont practice facility, complimentary unlimited repeat rounds following their initial paid rounds, complimentary rental clubs, guest signing privileges, complimentary shuttle to and from the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Clubhouse.
