As always I’d love to join the clan. Bit pricey for us on this side of the pond but I have zero responsibilities as of this minute so the door is always open for a splurge on a golf trip. Have checked flight prices out and will keep a keen eye on this in the forthcoming months!
TRUE SIM TOUR - WGR #37 (as of 20/08/18) Season Finishes (Money List) 2016: 15th ($4.9m) 2017: 10th ($6.0m) 2018: 35th ($1.7m)
I played Big Sky this year and it really is a beautiful course. Also played The Meadows which is much cheaper but not nearly as nice either, good value though. A black bear was in the area (The Meadows) and they told me the day before it ate a flag on one of the holes which was a bit unnerving. Both of these courses are in Pemberton. Whistler is great, busy place in the summertime. If you have a chance bring a mountain bike. Never played Nicklaus North and it's on my list of one day to play but it's very hard to find deals there now since the Americans kind of took over. We used to get one night and 2 rounds in for about $300 Cdn each based on double. That included your choice of either Nicklaus, Fairmont Chateau or Whistler Golf club. This is quite awhile ago though, maybe 8 years. I think when we went something was up with Nicklaus that prevented us from playing. What I will say is Fairmont was one tough course for me, I would love to play again because back then I wasn't much of a golfer. Not saying I'm very good now (maybe 16 handicap). I think I scored close to 110, lol.
Can I bring my PS4 and just drink? Lol Also, is there an RCR for Whistler?
But seriously, I may come just to hang out and drink!🤣 I’m nowhere good enough to even step onto that course!
I'm in the same boat! I enjoy a decent exec course, but nowhere near good enough to enjoy shelling out $200 for a round there -- or to be an enjoyable playing partner at that rate. Might drive up one evening, unless Andre can arrange something here in Vancouver at the front or back end of the trip.

We are just 10 months away! Getting excited to meet/see you guys again. Still lots of time to consider this trip but the list of interested is filling up rather quickly. We may push it to 20 golfers but most likely cap it there.
Also, I'm thinking that the price may be slightly higher than quoted as we may stay an extra night (the 14th), that gives people an extra day to get out here, see the sights or get in an optional early round on the 14th.
But like I said, still lots of time to kick around ideas as I'll be able to get more of a firm idea of price,etc by January/February.
