Golf Course Profile | Big Sky
Designed in 1993 Big Sky Golf Club as matured into one of the top courses in Canada today. Over the year's Big Sky has received many accolades and awards including being named the top public course in B.C by the BGPGA (2012) and being ranked in the top 30 courses in Canada by Golf Digest (2013).
Big Sky was designed to be a modern take on link style golf. This wonderful design allows the course to naturally role along the Pemberton Valley floor without drastically changing the landscape of the land. Modern touches, however, greet you throughout the course as several giant ponds come into play throughout the course.
The signature holes at Big Sky are two par 5's number 4 and number 18. Number 4 a long par 5 is unique in that a continuous stream cuts across the fairway 4 times splitting the fairway into 3 landing pads. Three good shots are required to reach this green which is severely sloped at the front and sides, repelling any errant shots into the stream or green side bunker.
Like number 4, number 18 is a long par 5 that can be score-able if you play it right. A huge fairway greets you off the tee allowing you to grip it and rip it. This becomes essential if you want to reach this green in two because the green is surrounded by a large lake and huge wrap-around bunker. If you have the distance off the tee you can reach this green in two, however, a sloped area off the back of the green and water to the right and allow for little error.
One of the most appealing things about Big Sky is the amazing views it offers of the Pemberton Valley. Located at the base of Mount Currie Mountain this course offers 360-degree views of the surrounding mountain ranges.
