The Grass is Greener at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler
Whistler Monday, May 21, 2012
The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club, widely considered one of the top golf facilities in North America and one of the most scenic golf courses in the world, is now open for the 2012 golf season.
“After a long winter, I’m happy to say our greens are in fantastic shape, as is the rest of the golf course, and we’re looking forward to a terrific summer,” said Gregg Lown, Director of Golf, The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club. “With the hard work by our turf care team and the long stretch of sunny weather Whistler has enjoyed thus far, we are on track for a truly outstanding golf season.”
In addition to the exceptional golf conditions, Lown said late spring is one of the best times of the year for guests to enjoy wildlife viewing course. “I always tell guests to remember their cameras. The local black bears here are a favorite and guests usually run across one or two during a round,” said Lown. “We’ve seen a few of our regular black bears back already this year, along with a new mom and cubs. For many, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to have such an experience. You don’t want to miss it.”
In order to encourage guests to spend as much time on the golf course as they like, The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is offering the newly launched Unlimited Golf Package for summer. The package features luxury accommodations in a Fairmont Room and unlimited golf on The Fairmont Chateau Whistler’s award winning Robert Trent Jones, Jr. golf course with each night’s stay. The longer you stay the more you can play; stay one night and receive one day of unlimited golf, stay two nights and receive two days of unlimited golf. Rates for the Unlimited Golf Vacation Package start from $229 CAD per person, based on double occupancy from June through September.
