2013 Golf Season Arrives in Whistler

All of Whistler's golf courses will be opening their door's this weekend for the first rounds of the season. Both the Whistler Golf Club and Nicklaus North will open Friday, May 3. While the Chateau Whistler will kick off its season on Saturday, May 4. All three of these courses will join Pemberton's Big Sky Golf Club which has been open since mid-April.

There are some killer deals on this week to celebrate opening weekend. May and June are always the cheapest times to play golf all year long. The month of May can often be the best time to get out and enjoy a round as the sun isn't smoldering hot yet and the courses tend to be less crowded. Check out all of this year's opening week deals below.

Whistler Golf Club

Opening Day | Friday, May 3

Whistler Golf Club Wide

Par 71 - Yardages: Blacks - 6722, Blues - 6336, Whites - 6004, Greens – 5348

Whistler's oldest course is celebrating it's 30th aniversary this year and is offering the cheapest deal of the week. You can golf anytime this week (May 3 - 9) for only $49. There are no limits on what time or what day, as far as I can remember this is one of the cheapest deals I've ever seen for a Whistler course. Don't hesitate and call the Whistler Golf Club today at 1-800-376-1777. Make sure to tell them the secret password, ARNIE, to get a smokin' deal.

Nicklaus North

Opening Day | Friday, May 3

Nicklaus North Wide

Par 71: Gold - 6908, Blue - 6413, White - 6004, Green - 5489, Red - 4732

Nicklaus North is kicking off the golf season by offering a $69 rate anytime from Friday to Sunday (May 3 - 5). This rate can be further reduced by bringing in perishable food items for the Whistler Food Bank. For every Kg of food you bring in your green fee will be reduced by $1. This deal is only good for $20 off or 20 Kg of food. If you have a bunch of can goods sitting around the house and want to play what many consider to be the top course in town give Nick North a call at 604-938-9898 and book your tee-time today.

Chateau Golf Club

Opening Day | Saturday, May 4

Chateau Golf Wide

Par 72: Gold - 6635, Blue - 6243, White - 5692, Red - 5157

The Chateau Golf Club offers a sweet deal for the 2013 opening. $79 includes power cart rental with colour GPS satellite systems. The opening season special runs from Saturday May 4 through Sunday May 12, 2013.

Big Sky Golf Club

Open since mid-April

Big Sky Golf Wide

Par 72: Black - 7001, Blue - 6496, White - 6037, Green - 5208

Big Sky Golf Club has been open since mid-April so they aren't currently running any opening week deals. However they are still offering a $65 rate which is good anytime of the week. This deal includes a cart and will continue to run for the next few weeks. Remember Big Sky has had the luxury of being open for almost 3 weeks now insuring it's probably in the best shape out of the four courses. To book a tee-time with Big Sky call them at 604-894-6106.
