“Very nice golf course, but not too friendly there.”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We loved the course. It was in nice shape. It is very scenic. We did not love the attitude of some of the people in the golf shop who want you to believe that they are too busy to even talk about a special rate available for tourists. Our lady that unloaded the car and drove us to the driving range was super-friendly. Oh, you have to leave your credit card or license with them while you rent clubs so that they can do a club count and verify everything upon completion of the round....just letting you know.

“fairly flat course”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

nice and pretty, fairly flat golf course right at the bottom of the main village. Great service in the club house, the patio cafe staff were a bit dense and certainly slow witted.

“My favourite course in Whistler!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

WGC combines stunning vistas, great design, friendly staff and great ground-keeping! 2013 is the second season for the new greens and they will make your earn every single put! It is easily "walkable" and if this doesn't work for you, the new carts provide a very smooth ride. The view from the 16th hole tee box takes my breath away every single time. Fore!

“Whistler Golf: Arnie's Course”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

This course, the first in Whistler, is a tribute to Arnold Palmer. The staff very friendly....the course a treat to play....walkable. And it's so close to the Whistler Village. The after golf lounge is a perfect place for a quick beer and sandwich overlooking the course. Beware of bears....I wouldn't venture too far into the rough to find a missing golf ball!!!

“A nice day out”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

This course could be a million miles from whistler and you would never know. A really nice course to play and the staff are friendly. This course is an Arnold Palmer design which widens out the further you get away from the tee deck. It also not uncommon to be playing your ball with a bear in sight and playing in the grass. It is a flat course as well.
