Golf Season Almost Here & Big Sky Is Celebrating 20 Years

Big Sky Golf 200Get ready for golf season! Big Sky in Pemberton is looking to start the season in mid-April, so there's just enough time to dust off the clubs and limber up.

It is almost golf season in Pemberton and Big Sky Golf Club is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Its a par 72 championship golf course located right at the base of majestic Mount Currie.

Designed by Bob Cupp

Designed by Bob Cupp, the course has matured into one of the top courses in Canada today. Bob began his career as a golf professional, and then transitioned into a career in golf design. He's been designing courses for over 40 years now, and has designed over 140 courses, among them courses which have held over 50 national and international championships, including 7 major championships.

He was Senior Designer with local Whistler Nicklaus Design for 15 years, and still remains friends with Jack Nicklaus, who feels that Bob was an integral part of his design firm. Bob began his own design firm in the 1980s and hasn't stopped since.

And don't forget Fescues, the restaurant at Big Sky. The restaurant opens from April 18 through October 14. The food is excellent, but the secret that all locals know is that the patio at Fescues hosts the best view in the Sea-to-Sky corridor. Absolutely breathtaking. You'll really have to see it to believe it.

We hope to see you there at least once this season.
