Hole #5 – “Whistler Bowl” (Par 3)
Certainly one of the most challenging par 3s on the course, the wind is usually on your face as you tee off with a fairway metal. Take extra club to avoid the front left bunker that gets a lot of play. The Whistler Bowl has one of the biggest greens on the course. Bonus: the Whistler Golf Club wedding spot, the “wedding knoll” sits just behind this hole. Whistler Mountain provides an incredible backdrop to your game and your special day, should you choose it!
Hole #7 – “Deception Pass” (Par 4)
Don’t be fooled by this hole–it might not look like much on the scorecard, but it continually proves to be one of the most challenging holes on the course. Aim your tee shot at the spruce on the left side of the fairway. Watch for the creek that twists on the right side and crosses the fairway just around the 100-yard mark. To rise to the challenge of this hole, lay up off the tee to the 150-yard mark to avoid the left fairway bunker. It will make you well prepared for the narrowing of the fairway after the 150 mark. Watch out for the lake!
Hole #10 – “Windtalker” (Par 4)
Whistler Mountain welcomes you as you prepare your tee shot at this favourite. A tee shot of 200-225 yards is what you need here. Sounds easy, right? Don’t underestimate this hole. Stray too far to the left and you’ll end up in the lake, and too far to the right and you’ll get stuck in the ravine bunkers. The second shot is where the real challenge begins, as the course’s namesake–the wind–will get all up in your face! Do your best to take lots of club as Crabapple Creek guards the green.
