Chateau Whistler: This Robert Trent Jones, Jr. layout winds upward over 300 feet into the base of Blackcomb mountain in the resort village of Whistler, about 75 miles north of  Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada.  Originally known for its skiing facilities, Whistler  has become a golfing mecca and features 3 high-profile designer courses, Nicklaus North designed by Jack Nicklaus and Whistler by Palmer and Seay, as well as Chateau Whistler. Opened in 1993, the course was recognized by Golf Digest as the best new Canadian Course of that year.  The routing progresses through Douglas Firs across glacier formed streams and among naked granite outcroppings.  Fairways are generous, but errant shots are penalized severely due to the thick stands of trees and many cascading streams. The signature par-3 8th is downhill to a green nestled against a pond on the left and framed by a steep granite rock face on the right.  The course rating from the Championship tees is 73 and the slope is 142.
