The scenery here will take your breath away. Some of the most majestic holes you've ever seen. You'll never forget this experience. The restaurant is amazing. Incredible cuisine and the nicest staff I've ever encountered. Nicklaus North is first class all the way.

“Golf with wildlife!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Totdat we enjoyed a pleasant round of golf at Nicklaus North in spite of the rain. Nice course, not too difficult. Well maintained. Good service. And.... A bear on the fairway! Afterwards a drink at the cosy restaurant.

“Great condition, mediocre layout”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Nicklaus North, situated in the valley bottom, below Whistler ski resort, carries the prestigious "Nicklaus" name but is, in fact, a pretty boring track. Seriously, elevation changes are non-existent. This course will remind you of numerous Florida courses in that it was flat as a board. Even the signature par 3 is just a longish carry over water to a semi-island green. Overall, it was a forgettable round on a well-maintained, "pleasant," but ho-hum course.

I totally agree with the post about it being over-priced. Clocks were on nearly all tee boxes to encourage groups to maintain their pace and it seemed to work - we were never backed up. Staff was courteous and the starter was quite friendly.

If you want to play golf in Whistler, try the Fairmont course. Located closer to the mountains, there are much more interesting holes and lots more elevation changes - and you'll save money!
