60. Laval-sur-le-Lac

Club de Golf Laval-sur-le-Lac

  • Green course
  • Laval, Québec (39KM northwest from Montreal)
  • 5th in the Province
  • Willie Park Jr., Ian Andrew
  • 1917
  • 61.6555 points

Willie Park Jr. was actually quite prolific across the country, but he called Montreal home during his time in North America (at one point, he was even Mount Bruno’s head professional). Somewhat surprisingly, Mount Bruno and Laval’s Green course are the only two remaining Park Jr.’s in greater Montreal.

All the classic calling cards of a Willie Park Jr. are to be found at the Green. Smaller, devilishly contoured greens that make the best putters question their prowess. A modest length by today’s standards, but a thought-provoking layout requiring the golfer to strategically plot their way around.

Is this the best “B” side golf course in the country? There is most certainly an argument for it.
