A Golfing Holiday to remember
Fly into Vancouver then head up to Whistler, one of Canada’s premier resorts, for the first part of your holiday. Base yourself in Whistler which is home to four championship, designer courses that provide an unparalleled mountain golf experience. To ease yourself in start with Arnold Palmer’s first ever Canadian design at the Whistler Golf Club, then choose between Robert Trent Jones Jr’s mountain design at the Chateau Whistler Golf Club, where bears frequent the course, or a tough experience at Jack Nicklaus’ signature design, Nicklaus North Golf Course, or play at the base of majestic Mount Currie on Robert Cupp’s Big Sky Golf and Country Club which provides a stunning backdrop.
From here take a leisurely drive over the stunning Duffy Lakes to the winery rich Okanagan. Base yourself here to play the 4 championship courses; Predators Ridge, Harvest Course, The Bear and Gallaghers Canyon.
This itinerary is flexible and can be tailor-made to suit you; if you want to add extra days in one area, remove some of the golf, extend the holiday or maybe change the direction of travel. Talk to one of our experts about how to make this holiday the perfect one for you.

"The holiday you arranged for us was great"
The holiday you arranged for us was great and we really appreciate all the work you did before we actually booked anything. When we were in Canada it became clear that your advice was sound and that you had prevented us from making a few mistakes in what thought we wanted to do, so thanks for that too!
In terms of the detail, we found that you had got the perfect balance between travelling between bases and sightseeing. The distances were never too long and the time spent in each location, although it ranged from one to four days, was just enough for us to see all we wanted but without rushing. So although we drove over 2000 miles, spent a day on a ferry and stayed in seven different locations, we have returned feeling relaxed and rested as well as fully entertained by the wide variety that Canada has to offer. We really feel that your arrangements were better value than anything we could have done ourselves.
