The club house offers the standard variety of meals and sandwiches, and the restaurant is on two levels, one for the general public and one for club members. The last time we were there, because a reception was being prepared in the main restaurant we were allowed access to the members lounge. A BBQ was the offering on the lovely outdoor terrace however it was very hot that day and we opted for the indoor lounge.
The Atlantide Course, designed by Graham Cooke in 1991, is the older of the courses. Mature trees line the course which my husband refers to as a classic course. We like the variety in the terrain. Although there is often water on the sides of the fairways the fairways and greens are generous in size. We enjoy walking the course as the tee boxes are near the end of the previous greens. Carts are available and we take advantage of them on hot days.
We played in 34 degrees Celsius weather and appreciated the shade and the breeze that our cart generated. Some consider this course to be amongst the top 100 beautiful public courses in Canada and amongst the 10 top public courses in Québec. We find this course to be challenging but not impossible to play for the average weekend golfers that we are.
The Don Quichotte Course, also designed by Graham Cooke, is the newer course. This course opened in 2005 and is a more demanding course than the older Atlantide. We always pack extra golf balls when we play this course because we generally make several offerings to the goddess of waters! Twelve of the eighteen holes have water in play. In fact the sixth hole is on a peninsula and if we miss the green we are guaranteed to land in the lake! The fairways are narrower than the ones on the Atlantide Course, the greens are faster and the wind can definitely be a factor. We enjoy playing this course when we want to be challenged!
