Big Sky Whistler Golf Resort is located in the shadow of the imposing Mt Currie in Pemberton, British Columbia.
The golf course was designed by Bob Cupp and opened for play in 1994.
The course occupies relatively flat marshy land surrounded by snow capped mountains, and Cupp has used this to his advantage with water hazards and mountain vistas dominating the Big Sky experience.
The views are truly 'out of this world'.
As you would expect from a resort course the greens are decent sized targets without a lot of movement.
But the course is no pushover.
It is well bunkered and water hazards are in play on 16 holes, so you need to bring your 'A' game to post a decent score.
Notable holes include:
- hole 1 (Mount Currie), a long par 4 where your eye is immediately drawn to the mountain backdrop
- hole 2 (Morning Mist), a mid- length dog leg par 4 with water in play on the approach
- hole 7 (Lone Tree), a short par 4 with water in play the length of the hole
- hole 11 (Cat Tail), a pretty water carry par 3
- hole 14 (Hang Time), a longer par 4 where the drive into the mountain backdrop could become an addictive experience!
- hole 16 (Deep Breath), a challenging par 4 which arcs left to right around the water
- hole 18 (Final Approach), a real three shotter to finish where you must carry the water to get home.
Big Sky is fun to play and is a good course in a spectacular setting.
