The second course at the Westin Bear Mountain resort in British Columbia has opened. The Valley course, designed by Jack Nicklaus’s practice, plays at a lower elevation than the resort’s Mountain course, also built by Nicklaus.
The course makes use of a variety of landscapes including forest, lakes, creeks and rivers and offers views of the wild British Columbia landscape. At 6,807 yards, the new course is around 400 yards shorter than its sibling. With elevated tee boxes, more generous fairway widths, fewer bunkers and larger greens, the resort expects the Valley course to be considered a friendlier track.
