Creek Golf & Country Club
Creek Golf and Country Club offers a golfing experience like no
other. With rugged mountains and panoramic views of the Squamish
Inlet, itís sometimes hard to concentrate on the golf; but Robert
Muir Graves has put together a masterpiece that should not be missed.
This 6,184 yard course takes you over mountain streams, across ravines
and along ocean points to bring you what has been called "the best
golf challenge in the Pacific Northwest."
The par four
#1 and par three #14 stand out as perfect examples of Furry Creek
golf. Number one tantalizes you with a 165 foot drop from the tee
to the green. In spite of the water to the left and the trees to
the right, big hitters can rarely resist the temptation to let one
fly. With a favourable combination of wind and elevation it is not
unheard of to reach the green 326 yards away!
The par three
fourteen brings you a golfing experience unlike any other. Hugging
the unspoiled shoreline of the Squamish inlet this awe-inspiring
par-three may be the prettiest golf hole in all of Canada!
211 yards from the championship tees to 141 yards from the forward
tees, a solid long or mid-iron is required to reach the green that
has bunkers short and long and is surrounded on three sides by water.
Add capricious winds to the mix and you will quickly see that this
hole is as challenging as it is beautiful. And my lord is it beautiful!
among trivia buffs and the course that Bob Barker and Adam Sandler
had it out on, in the movie "Happy Gilmore" Furry Creek is a golfing
experience unlike any other on the continent. It wonít be the course
you shoot your career round on, but it will be one of the courses
you will remember for the rest of your life. Be sure to include
it in any Vancouver or Whistler golf vacation!
