Take on Le Geant golf course, a brawny Thomas McBroom design in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec

MONT-TREMBLANT, Quebec, Canada -- Thomas McBroom and Doug Carrick seem to be neck-and-neck in the race to be considered Canada's modern Stanley Thompson, the celebrated Golden Era architect who designed many of the country's classic courses.

McBroom has designed 12 courses ranked among ScoreGolf's top 100 in Canada, third behind Thompson's 15 and Carrick's 13. McBroom's Le Geant Course at Mont Tremblant Resort, ranked no. 45 in ScoreGolf's top 100 in 2012, spearheaded the golf boom in the Laurentian Mountains roughly 75 miles northwest of Montreal. Soon after Le Geant opened in 1995, the region's other top courses opened or began construction.

The 6,836-yard Le Geant Course soars across rugged, hilly land just a short drive from the region's celebrated ski resort village. There are few flat lies, especially on Nos. 3-6, where two tough rock-laden par 4s and two pretty downhill par 3s await.

Le Geant's back nine shines with shot making. The short par-4 11th hole plays just 311 yards from the tips but tortures players who are too aggressive challenging the narrow dogleg to the right. The fun 380-yard 14th hole plummets off an elevated tee before veering left and back uphill to the green. A heroic carry over a ravine from the 458-yard gray tees on No. 18 sets up a demanding downhill approach to end the round.

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.
