A municipal course, this newer Graham Cooke design is extremely popular. Course maintenance and the overall effect have reportedly improved somewhat over the past years, adding to the enjoyment of the two 18-hole layouts. The Oakville course plays 6700 yards at par 72, while the Gentilly course plays a more merciful 6200 yards at par 71; each can provide an enjoyable round, especially midweek.
The oldest golf club in all of North America founded in 1873, offering three finest golf courses.
This par 71 course may not have the best clubhouse you've ever seen; but it's one of the fairest tests of golf in the region. The narrow fairways are bordered by ball-eating mature trees, so it's best to keep those drives as straight as possible. If you do stray, however, don't worry about losing your ball, as the maintenance is impeccable. There are some easy holes on the course, in principle anyway, and you'd better take advantage because the four finishing holes are legendary. Call ahead for current greens fees.
An all-inclusive family entertainment center, this site gathers all the fun under one roof. Featured are a rollerblading rink, bowling, Bananazoo (an amusement park for young children), Wackyputt miniature golf, billiards, arcades, tennis and a laser game. You can try your luck at climbing Mount Himalaya, take a go-kart ride, or see if you can beat the best at the latest video games. More traditional games include racquetball, tennis, bingo, inline skating, bowling and ping pong.
One of the most challenging courses in the region, this Graham Cooke-designed layout offers an open front nine with views of the St Lawrence River and a tighter back nine carved out of dense woods. The course plays a respectable 6600 yards at par 72 and, though not cheap and about 45 minutes from downtown Montreal, is one of the finest golf experiences the area has to offer.
Nicely located in residential Côte-St-Luc, this course isn't especially high-class, but it's very affordable and well maintained. The clubhouse staff is friendly and offers a snack bar, pro shop, and all the other usual amenities. Meadowbrook doesn't play particularly long, though some beautiful old trees come into the picture, and the greens fees are a very manageable on weekends. It is just minutes west of Montreal. Reserved tee times are taken only on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
