There are few better Golf Experiences in Canada than at Big Sky Golf Course. The stunning golf course is surrounded by the massive snow-capped Mount Currie as well as an abundance of wildlife. Amongst it all is a beautifully conditioned golf course with wonderful, elevation changes. There’s nothing quite the same as golfing in the Whistler Mountains. The air is lighter here and helps refresh your senses and clear your mind. It’s fun to take a big deep breath then line up and execute your shot in this golf oasis.
Big Sky Golf Club opened to great acclaim in 1994 and is now recognised by Score Golf as one of the top 20 public golf courses in Canada. The Course was designed by Bob Cup whose Canadian Portfolio includes many greats such as Glen Abbey venue for The Canadian Open, Deerhurst Highlands, and Mad River.
The course occupies relatively flat marshy land surrounded by huge 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’.
“On what was essentially a potato field, Cupp laid out a stunning 7001 Yard track that includes seven lakes and a serpentine creek that comes into play on many holes. Doglegs both left and right, long holes that play into the prevailing wind, strategic bunkering, and risk-reward options at every hole make Big Sky a memorable challenge.
“Tree planting was purposely kept to a minimum to preserve the incredible panoramic views of Mount Currie, which rises 2,591 meters (8,500 feet) above sea level. Stand on the long, par-4 14th tee deck and notice how your drive seems to hang suspended in air against the backdrop of this majestic mountain!
Big Sky Golf and Country Club are located about a 35-minute drive north of the Whistler resort at Pemberton. If you get there early you can experience the excellent practice facilities, Academy Course and driving range. There are also two practice holes with multiple tees and several practice greens and bunkers. 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.

The signature hole at Big Sky is the 14th, a 454-yard par-four called ‘Hang Time’. As you get up to the tee enjoy the moment and take it all in. Be sure to look up at the incredible view of the mountains surrounded by clouds that regularly get trapped in the nearby mountain tops. Now It’s time to unleash your inner beast. Get out the big dawg and crush your drive then watch your ball suspend in mid-air then boom out into the distance!. This is one of Canada’s great driving holes, so make sure you do yourself justice!. With water left and multiple bunkers protecting the green you’ll need to hit a good approach shot to score well.
