Jack Nicklaus could never have been more sure of his creation than the Nicklaus North Golf Course in British Columbia. This is one of the very few golf courses in the world that bears his name, one of those few chosen ones that risk everything that Nicklaus has worked for most of his life. But the risk was worth taking. Only a golf vacation destination of this caliber could carry not only the name, but the prestige and excellence that is Jack Nicklaus.
The Nicklaus North Golf Course is located right in the most beautiful part of Whistler, BC, Canada. It enjoys magnificent mountain vistas and features, to which Nicklaus weaved his signature course features all too perfectly. His trademark par 3s and bunkering are well placed around ancient firs, glacier fed streams, and the beautiful Green Lake. The course was designed to test out every golfers’ skill while optimizing the natural setting of the property – to make it work well with the layout and the play and go beyond the aesthetics. Views, layout playability – these are enough to call the course a true golfers’ haven. The on-course amenities only do so much as to cement this course into the golf vacation heaven status.
With a top-rated restaurant and grill, The Den, plus a fully-stocked Pro Shop, full service practice facilities and driving range, the pre- and post-game needs are surely covered. With close to 7000 yards of golf from the longest tees, par 71, and five sets of tees, golf trips are assuredly one for everyone. With Jack Nicklaus bringing everything into the table, there is not enough a reason to not believe that the Nicklaus North Golf Course is among his best works to date.
