Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club was carved from the sloping hillside of the Coast Mountain Range. Robert Trent Jones Jr. deftly designed the course across ravines, creeks, and waterfalls, which accumulates to over 400 feet in dramatic elevation changes. Jones closely followed the natural contours of the rugged terrain, creating a golf course that blends seamlessly into the landscape. It shares a home with an abundance of wildlife as well including deer, black bears, and a variety of indigenous birds. Douglas firs blanket the course along with outcroppings of exposed granite rock. The generous fairways are lined with trees and deep bunkers are strategically placed throughout. One of Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club's most notable holes is the par-3 eighth, which begins at an elevated tee situated 80 feet above the green with a large pond to the left and granite cliffs to the right.

Great layout

Great course. Most fairways had burnout or bare spots. Greens were good for the most part. Beautiful place to play. Great staff.

Tough course

One of most beautiful scenery course I played, staffs are very nice and informative. First five holes are cart pass only and it’s up hill all the way to the green. We had two groups front of us who were drunk as skunks and no marshals on the course. Just imagine waiting every single holes to tee off and waiting again in the fairway get to the green. We called pro shop to speed things but they didn’t do anything, they got our money already so we were on our own. Such a beautiful and challenging course but lack of customer service was put down.

Beautiful Views

Great views of Whistler & Blackcomb mountains!
Difficult to play the first time as there is trouble you don’t know about. Layout & flowers are incredible. The first 6 holes had 4 cart path only & played painfully slow- the marshal did get the slowest group going. Not all forward tee boxes were level.

Beautiful course in a picturesque setting. Front nine is difficult, but don’t get discouraged. Back nine is much more friendlier.

Good but not great

After reading some earlier reviews on this course, I had high expectations that this was a must play while in Whistler.
Whilst the course was good it wasn’t great.
The par 3’s where very good , but most of the other holes lacked the wow factor I was looking for.
The course was in great condition with really fast greens.
