The Canadian Rockies and British Columbia offer some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. And, we will be staying and playing in the center of it all – Whistler. While widely known as one of the host venues for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, Whistler is actually busier as a summer resort than as a winter resort. This year’s trip is going to be jam packed with fantastic golf, five star accommodations, great food and unique excursions. And, don’t forget Vancouver. It is a great Pacific Northwest city that is worthy of a full day of exploration. The weather should be perfect and the camaraderie most excellent, as always. Book your flights quick and send a commitment e-mail back ASAP. For a quick preview of the trip, please click on the Photo Gallery link directly below the picture on your left.

*FLIGHT INFORMATION: Delta flies non-stop to and from Vancouver, one time per day, on August 18th and 23rd. It is doubtful there will be enough first class seats on these two non-stop flights. There are also numerous other flights on Delta that connect via Salt Lake City, Minneapolis, Detroit, New York, Los Angeles and Seattle. American, United and Alaska Airlines also service Vancouver, via connecting flights.
For your inbound flight, you may arrive into Vancouver at any time prior to Saturday, August 19th, as you are on your own getting from Vancouver Airport to the Hyatt Regency. We will be departing from the Hyatt for Furry Creek and Whistler August 19th at 7:00 am PST. If you have a full day on August 18th, we highly recommend flying into Vancouver as early as possible and spend the day exploring the city. Vancouver is a cosmopolitan city with much to offer in the way of tourist and historical sites and entertainment and arts districts.
We will be departing the Four Seasons Whistler on August 23rd at 8:00 am and arriving at Vancouver Airport by 10:00 am. This lead time will allow you to book any airline and any return flight to Atlanta that departs after 12:00 pm. There is one non-stop flight on Delta and other flights, via Delta, United, American and Alaska Airlines that are available with connections in other cities.
“If” you want / need to take an early morning flight (before 11:45 am) from Vancouver to Atlanta it will be your responsibility to arrange your own transportation from Whistler to Vancouver Airport on August 23rd or reserve your own room at a Vancouver Airport hotel the night of August 22nd.
