Club de Golf Lachute

  • Thompson course
  • Lachute, Québec (82KM northwest from Montreal)
  • 9th in the province
  • Ian Murray, Stanley Thompson
  • 1923
  • 92.1224 points

An unusual ensemble for Stanley Thompson, featuring six par 3’s, six par 4’s, and six par 5’s, Lachute stands out amongst his large catalog for that exact reason, and likewise a part of why Lachute is worthy of being amongst Canada’s Top 100But it is for that reason that Lachute makes our top 100.

The par 4 cast, while slightly thinner, are a strong grouping nonetheless. From the opening 460 yard brute, to the short 358 yard 12th, there is a bit of everything mixed in. A handful of par 5’s, including the gargantuan 3rd and short 4th, are particularly of interest.

Like a majority of Thompson golf courses, the one-shot holes are always good, and the same rings true at Lachute. Among the group, the 2nd, long 5th, and short 13th are the most enticing to our senses.
