  • Golf Club in a really beautiful area. The fairways and Greens are however extremely unkempt. Reservation by E-mail not possible - there was no answer at all. Then personal request (service ok), extremely arrogant but on game day, slow, casual gum chewing in the clubhouse, for booking of green fees more than 25 minute lasted and was very unfriendly. Caddies are at first only on money. Golf carts were available, none since most of defective. All in all: not worthy for golf and suitable

  • I made you a brief overview of the experience, professional teacher of a golf club in the Quebec region since twenty years, I made an analysis for you help. Average cost of a round 80 US $, cost in the caddy shack $20 for 18 holes on foot. US $15 tip, if you want your caddy back. So, $115 per round of 18 holes walking. Cost for a sleeve of 3 balls between $15 and $20 US, bring your balls. Small basket of practice (+ - 25 balls) $5 US. Their website is managed by an independent firm and it seems that no one is aware at the golf club, if someone responds to the requests of the visitors, I can confirm that nobody gives following e-mails on their site. The land itself is interesting 6765 yards of blue milestones (134 slope), the longest and 5403 yards of Red milestones (120 slope). The aisles are a good width, a few water obstacles fairly easily circumvented, the Greens are quite variable speed, they were hosting a tournament on the PGA Tour in June and some Greens have suffered from this visit. Depending on the time, the background is rather muddy as the ground does not allow water to penetrate (especially in December), so the bullets do not roll in the aisles. The Greens are not receptive in the same way, check your caddy for the differences, it will help you to calculate the tip. Avoid the bunkers for the most part they are not really maintained. You have the possibility to buy drinks between 2 nine holes, and can set your round by credit cards at the proshop. My usual caddy is called José Santos the no5, do not hesitate to ask. There is no reservation to do: you come, you pay, you go through the caddy shack and you start your round. 1 caddy per cart or 1 caddy by player walk, cost of the cart $35 US per person, if you have the form go there walking, it's very flat and you have nothing to wear. I am a customer a regular to this place, I like the lay of the land and the landscape that surrounds it, this isn't remarkable, but pretty decent club to play a few rounds during the off-season. I wish good rounds and hope have answered most of the questions.

  • the course was not that great, the greens were burned and the golf carts were sketchy, we had a great caddie Manuel that made the round bareable, very pricey but the best in the area. I would recommen...  more »
