Your safety is our top priority.



The following guidelines have been created to assist guests in preparing for and playing golf during the 2023 season at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Course. The guidelines are based on the direction provided by the Allied Golf Association of BC, consistent with the overall resort and best practices from other clubs.

This document will be reviewed on an ongoing basis as guidelines are relaxed or tightened.

Over the last seasons we worked very hard on safety for our members and guests. Be assured that all choices are a result of an extensive review and planning process and have taken into consideration the health and safety of members, guests, and staff.

We appreciate your support in adhering to the guidelines and helping us keep the game and our facility safe during the 2023 golfing season.

If you have any questions or clarifications, please do not hesitate to contact us.
