There are certainly longer golf courses in Quebec than the Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello Golf Club, but it would be difficult to find one any better. The historic par-70 design by the legendary Stanley Thompson, which plays just 6,308 yards from the back tees, has a way of humbling golfers, especially those who don't understand its subtleties.
Without a membership, there's only one way to access Le Maitre, a private club run by ClubLink in the Laurentian Mountains roughly 75 miles northwest of Montreal. A stay-and-play with a resort hotel such as the Fairmont Tremblant opens doors to Le Maitre, which means "the master" in French. In 2012, ScoreGolf ranked the 7,025-yard course no. 37 among the top 100 courses in Canada.
No golf course in the Laurentian Mountains brings out more polarizing opinions than Le Diable at Mont Tremblant Resort. Some consider Le Diable -- which translates to "the devil" in English -- the best public course in the region 75 miles northwest of Montreal, while others believe too many penal bunkers and waste areas too often ruin the opportunity for a decent score. Here's a closer look at Le Diable. You decide.
Thrilling mountain golf makes Mont-Tremblant, Quebec -- a vaunted ski destination in the Laurentian Mountains roughly 75 miles northwest of Montreal -- one of Canada's premier summer getaways, too. The signature experience comes at Le Maitre, a private club accessible by staying at high-end hotels such as the Fairmont Tremblant. Other highlights include Gray Rocks' La Belle and La Bete Courses, Intrawest's Le Geant and Le Diable Courses, and Golf Manitou.
They don't call Gray Rocks resort's La Bete Course "the beast" for nothing. The 6,825-yard Graham Cooke design, located in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, strikes fear into players with its mountainous challenges. La Bete, which opened in 2001, gives Gray Rocks Golf a 1-2 punch (along with La Belle "the beauty") in this premier vacation destination approximately 75 miles northwest of Montreal.
The Club de Golf Heritage course in Quebec, celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2013, plays almost as good as the more celebrated Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello Golf Club. This under-the-radar resort has blossomed into a place worth discovering in the foothills of the Laurentian Mountains roughly 100 kilometers northwest of Ottawa.
