Upon arrival we asked the greeting attendant Zoey if we could leave our clubs in the back of the truck and take our power carts to the truck to unload. We were told that the power carts will shut down if taken into the parking lot. This turned out to be a lie. We were followed into the parking lot and the attendants unloaded our clubs and carried them to the pro shop. Upon registration we were told that there was no to be no outside liquor brought onto the course. We admitted that our bags had some beer and that we would return them to the truck. We took the power carts to the truck that was in the parking lot without them shutting down and took our beer out of our bags. I do not appreciate being lied to especially when I am paying $250 for a round of golf. For the first few holes we were being consistently monitored by the various marshals as the employee in the pro shop was directing them to be on the look out for us as we might still have liquor in our bags. At the turn I bought four Budweiser's for $31.50 plus tip and we hardly saw the marshals after that. Later Zoey came by on a power cart and stopped at my power cart and looked at my opened can of beer. She then stated that I brought outside beer on the course as they do not sell Budweiser. I was shocked and when I protested by telling her I bought the beer on the turn she simply drove away without an apology or conversation. I am 66 years old and have golfed my entire life including many courses around the world. This is the worst customer service on any of the courses I played. In my opinion this is a managerial issue at this course as opposed to an individual problem. I wonder what Mr. Nicklaus would say if he knew that a course that carries his name treated their customers in this fashion? This type of treatment sure took away from my experience on an otherwise nice course.

Stunning views at almost every hole. Designed by Jack Nicklaus, this multi award winng course does not disapoint.

A par 71, 18-hole course winds around Whistler valley. This is not a course for a beginner and requires various skills to navigate but is well worth the trip to Whistler.

Course is nothing special but well kept. But customer service is not great.
There was a team of grounds staff fishing balls out of a lake on the 10th and we had to shoot over them. Pro shop staff said it was midweek so it happens. Pretty dismissive. Also half way house was not prepared with much in the way of lunch options.
Would not recommend playing here. So many other better and nicer places to play nearby.

I had to opportunity to play this beautiful course a couple weeks ago. Very well maintained, the fairways were dynamite, greens run fast and true, and staff were very friendly. All in all such a great experience, would 10/10 recommend a round or 2 or 3 at Nicklaus North next time you're in whistler.

Golfed here and was not overly impressed in many ways. Service was lacking compared to the Fairmont that we golfed at the previous day. No towel were provided, coolers had to be filled with ice ourselves (would be nice to know) and pro shop staff were not friendly or outgoing at all. Their attitude seemed different for members. I’m paying $420 to golf (for 2) I should also get some respect. GPS system on the carts are horrible … you can’t gauge distance to hazards etc. Patio and restaurant staff were excellent. Golf course itself is a bit boring and the scenery is definitely not that great (again compared to Fairmont). Would not play it again and would not recommend it to others.

I went here with a group of nine friends. A fellow named Dom checked us in and immediately made us feel unwelcome by insisting that we pay for the remaining spots in our tee times loudly in the pro shop. He said he could have sold the spots but the groups on either side of us were not full (2 and 3 per). His approach to this problem was an example of some of the worst customer service I have ever received. He wasn’t trying to work with us or hear our side of it. We had to speak to his manager to get a more reasonable approach. Some of the golfers in our group weren’t as experienced as others and one group was rudely talked to by the course liaison to speed up of get kicked off. I expect a lot better when paying top dollar for an afternoon of golf. I will not be back.

Our day on the course was fantastic. I always enjoy when play keeps pace which it did. We were never waiting. It's challenging enough for those looking to test their game but enjoyable for those less skilled. Just enough strategically placed water and sand but not too much. It's a flat course with wide fairways which is unusual for a mountain course and something I appreciate. The two bear cubs who crossed in front of us on the second hole didn't mind us being in their space. The price was better than other courses in the area and certainly the best value.

I took my husband for a round of golf at Nick North and he had the BEST time!
From arrival, everything was managed professionally and promptly and we were out on the green in no time!
We were greeted by a friendly employee (who's name I have forgotten, sorry!) at the first hole who provided us with some tips regarding the course and of course wished us a happy round!
We tee'd off late, and were not expecting to get round the whole course prior to darkness (we started at 4:10pm!) but managed to get to the 15th hole as darkness was setting in, so skipped ahead to the 18th hole for my husband to play the final hole in the dark, and he was incredibly pleased to hit par in the almost pitch black!
If you are starting later in the day, be sure to bring a jacket for once the sun goes behind the mountains, as it does get chillier later in the season.

A great afternoon was had and we will be sure to return next season!
