Whistler's DGC is one of the most scenic courses I have played yet. The course is surrounded by wildlife, tall Pines, and other native folliage. This course is located in the mountains just outside downtown Whistler (about 10 minutes away). As you play through, scenic views of the entire area can be seen including Whistler's premier golf courses, lakes, and various mountain ranges. The holes vary from under 100 feet to well over 300. Although the course doesn't have a lot of length, it makes up for it with tight fairways and difficult putts. Trees literally surround the majority of the holes with a few that are wide open. The course gives several birdie opportunities and there are definately a half dozen ace holes. Also, be sure if you have time to play the alternate and more challening tee pads (with the exception of a few). The only tee's without an alternate box are holes 11, 12, 14, 21, and 22. The rest are near the original numbered tees.
Unless you have played before you will want to find a local like I did the first time. There are very few signs to follow but once you have played through once it is easy to remember. The only other issue was that the course had about 8 tonals out of 27 holes. The holes that did have baskets though were in excellent shape. Tee pads are a mix of dirt and gravel, but don't really affect your game considering you don't need a whole lot of power when driving, it's more about touch!
Holes 16 and 18 are truely amazing and to me what make this course great. Hole 16 you throw uphill to a basket that is on top of a 30 foot boulder, where if you don't make it you are looking at atleast a bogie. Hole 18 you throw from on top of a cliff down over the forested area to a basket a few hundred feet down and away. Another thing that stood out was the fact that the course played under gigantic powerlines. Players must play under and around them at times without hitting them. It makes for a unique experience. One more note, the locals that I played with were truely some of the nicest people I have ever played with. They were friendly and helpful and full of positivity. If you are in Whistler you MUST play this course. It will leave an impression that will last a lifetime. I guarantee it!
