Why You Should Golf At Nicklaus North

Nicklaus North is a Whistler golf favourite. Since it’s just minutes from Whistler, BC, it’s a no-brainer to add it to your BC golf checklist. It’s one of the rare courses to bear Nicklaus’s name and it strives hard and succeeds in living up to the high standard. Note that high handicappers may have a difficult time with this course. It’s open from early May to mid-October: here’s why you should give it a gander.


Nicklaus is no stranger to recognition. It’s been awarded numerous times since opening in 1996. It’s hosted several events and championships, including Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf. Golf names such as Nick Faldo, Jack Nicklaus, Stephen Ames, and others have golfed here.

The Views

Nicklaus offers stunning views of the Blackcomb Mountains and the town of Whistler. Water feature fans will rejoice here, as Nicklaus is a queen of water views–especially in the second half of the game. Bonus: the course is walkable!

Relaxing Place To Eat

The patio seating at Table Nineteen Lakeside Eatery offers a respite from the daily hubbub of BC life. While the drink list is limited, they offer friendly service and generous portions. The patio overlooks the course and Green Lake. It provides a gorgeous view–a great place even for a non-golfer to put up his or her feet for a while.

Table Nineteen is appropriate for formal or casual dining, as it offers a more upscale stone-accented seating as well as a casual sports lounge. Unlike the golf course, the restaurant is open year-round.

The Difficulty!

As mentioned, this course may be difficult for high handicappers. Not to mention, it features five challenging par 3’s, many water features, and bunkered greens. Hole #12 has been rated as the toughest hole in the province but is also the most memorable.
