Nicklaus North Recognized by Pacific Northwest Golfer Magazine
Par-3 12th hole selected as one of the ‘Great Holes of the Northwest’
In the May 2018 issue of Pacific Northwest Golfer magazine, the par-3 12th hole at Nicklaus North Golf Course in Whistler, B.C. is recognized as one of the “Great Holes of the Northwest,” one of just four holes selected each year by the Northwest’s largest and longest-running golf publication.
A plateau green with a severe false front and surrounded by bunkers front, back-left and back-right, this par-3 is one of the more memorable holes in British Columbia. The putting surface is ridged and slopes away, required a high soft shot – a Nicklaus signature shot – to keep it on the green, no matter which tee box is used. Tee markers range from 128 to 225 yards
Located near the village of Whistler, B.C., the par-71 Nicklaus North layout winds along a gentle valley floor. Winner of numerous awards since its opening in 1996, Nicklaus North has played host to events such as the Skins Game and Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf, welcoming some of golf’s biggest names such as Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo, Ernie Els, Greg Norman, Fred Couples, John Daly, Vijay Singh and Stephen Ames to name a few.
