With its incredible blend of snowcapped mountains, world-class resorts and superb golf courses by Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones Jr. Arnold Palmer and Robert Cupp it should come as no surprise that Whistler has been named as the Top Golf Resort destination in Canada and one of the Top Twenty Golf Destinations in the World by Golf Digest Magazine.
What may come as a surprise is the incredible diversity of things to do after your round of golf. Whistler Village is the central hub of all activity in the valley. “The Village” as the locals call it, is an intriguing mixture of high-end retail chains and locally owned boutique shops, luxurious spas and mountain biking stores, fine dining restaurants and laid-back pubs, elegant lounges and thriving nightclubs. No matter what kind of atmosphere or indulgence you are wanting after your round, odds are you will be able to find it simply walking through the pedestrian-only streets of Whistler Village.
Whistler is located 120 kilometers (75 miles) north of Vancouver. It is accessible by car via Highway 99 from Vancouver. The closest airport is Vancouver International Airport.
