Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club was carved from the sloping hillside of the Coast Mountain Range. Robert Trent Jones Jr. deftly designed the course across ravines, creeks, and waterfalls, which accumulates to over 400 feet in dramatic elevation changes. Jones closely followed the natural contours of the rugged terrain, creating a golf course that blends seamlessly into the landscape. It shares a home with an abundance of wildlife as well including deer, black bears, and a variety of indigenous birds. Douglas firs blanket the course along with outcroppings of exposed granite rock. The generous fairways are lined with trees and deep bunkers are strategically placed throughout. One of Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club's most notable holes is the par-3 eighth, which begins at an elevated tee situated 80 feet above the green with a large pond to the left and granite cliffs to the right.
