Some courses are only big on size and lacking in quality. Others are the opposite – big fun, small size. Others have it all on scenic quality. Thankfully, there are those rare ones who are as big as their talk. And the Big Sky Golf Club in Whistler, BC, Canada is a most perfect example. This golf vacation destination is listed as a favorite among local and visiting golfers alike. And the reasons are quite clear.
The Big Sky Golf Club is big in size. At 7,001 yards playing for a par of 72, there is so much to do in this land overshadowed by the snow capped Mt. Currie. It would be hard to single out the most scenic part here when crystal clear natural water features, large native trees, and an overcast of a mountain straight out of an oil painting are in the choices. And just as big on the looks, golfers are also in for a massive challenge. Let the same stunning water features tell the tale. Its designer, Robert Cupp, was big on using the natural attributes of the property in coming up with this piece. On top of that, he has filled the course with best quality grass and sand for the greens, fairways, and the bunkers well shaped to define the course’s attitude. All that presented on four sets of tees make this course perfect for the biggest golf trips.
Because of its big qualities, it does not come off as a surprise that the Big Sky Golf Club is granted 4 ½ stars by Golf Digest’s Places to Play. It is also as natural that it has granted the golf vacation haven the Best Course in BC. No wonder this course is also big on happiness.
