    Just played my first round. Shot a 57 with eagles on #7 and #9. 

    Great course, magnificently beautiful.

    Thanks WGT! Look forward to wearing this one out over the next few weeks. :)

    I agree, It is a very nice course. Just Finished the Front9, Par 37... ....shot a -4  33. Had to use my 3wood on a couple of holes off the Tee on the Par4's  and the Pars 5's (3)  are reachable in 2 shots. I will be playing it again and looking forward to playing 18holes

    ** Edit.. There is a Free 18 hole Single comp at the moment.  Wish I saw that before ...lol

    Whistler is a mother!

    Tricky putting.

    Shortcomings of the graphics notwithstanding, it is nice to see a mountain course - as an old hillbilly myself. Also, we now have North America covered.

    (Thanks, I see the free 18-hole tournament is on the main tournament screen. Funny place to put it for a change.)

    There do not seem to be any awards for this course.

    Totally agree, gr8 addition and very different from other strokeplay courses on WGT. Nice slopes and elevation.  Graphics not HD but better than Cabo. Putting can be tough, especially with championshipgreenspeeds. No awards yet, suggestion: "Whistler Winner". .....oh, have 2 go, time 2 play again.....:-)

    Cheers, GC

    Good job WGT; nice bit of variety in comparison to the other courses. Many people struggle to judge shots into severe up and downslopes, so this course should help a lot to better their play. Each hole generally only has one good putting position and it's easy to face a very tricky putt if you get above the cup.

    Very nice course indeed. Is it just me or are the elevations wrong on the third hole at the tee off?? The arrow is pointing up when it is an obvious major decline.

    A very nice course indeed, a lovely stocking filler as you could say.  Much better than cabo. Rented the G20's and bought the G20 wood and tested them out at whistling.  Wow, why does playing whistling feel like christmas? Irons meter so slow i'm pressing way early .LOL  Thanks wgt

    Hole 2 says 56 feet up slope, on the tee it looks like its down slope, i thought it was a mistake so went for my driver, PLOP 280 yards into water, it clearly is RIGHT, its UP!.lol
