Great Carrick Design
La Bête at Gray Rocks Resort is a great Doug Carrick Design. The front nine has many elevation changes that are picturesque. The back nine from the Blue tees is very challenging, you have to hit the ball in the right spot to have a chance at making par. This is not a walking course. I would have two suggestions to make: 1) The fairway bunkers need to be improved or taken out as they are nothing but clay. 2) As the tees and greens are elevated, you have to be part billy goat. I would suggest that stairs be put in to difficult to reach tees. Otherwise, this course was a joy to play and would play it again and again!
Good luck attempting to slay this 'beast'
La Bete (which translates from French to "the beast" in English) attacks players with a 6,825-yard modern Graham Cooke design overloaded with mountainous challenges.
It's not my favorite course in Mont-Tremblant. There's simply too many awkward holes that feel shoe-horned into the severe terrain. The second hole, a treacherous and confounding par-4, needs to be redone.
The scenery from the tees at the par-5 11th hole and par-3 15th hole, though, are the reasons golfers make the journey. As long as you don't mind losing a few balls, and shooting a higher score than you're used it, you'll enjoy the day at La Bete.
