Golf amid mountain scenery
in the Eastern Townships
The Eastern Townships, located an easy one
hour drive from Montréal, embrace tranquil rural communities in
the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and the Montéregie
Valley. Explore picture-postcard villages such as Sutton,
Knowlton, North Hatley and Bromont. Sample delicious regional
cuisine featuring bountiful local produce, enjoy a sidewalk
café, or find an antique treasure or piece of unique local
artwork to take back home. Stroll or bike amidst picturesque
mountain scenery and fields of wildflowers that may make you
question whether you might be in Austria or Provence. A dozen
vineyards welcome you on the Eastern Townships wine route. The
performing arts and culture thrive in this region with 140
annual festivals and events.
Families are sure to enjoy the Granby Zoo and the Bromont water
park, with slides built right onto the foothills of the ski
slopes. The Astrolab and Observatory at Mont-Mégantic house the
most impressive telescope in Canada and offer educational tours.
Four area national parks, boasting lakes and mountain panoramas,
offer the ideal setting for hiking and mountain biking or a
relaxing picnic. Fall foliage season is particularly spectacular
for avid photographers.
The Eastern Townships golfing experience is characterized by the
picturesque mountain scenery of the region. Renowned Canadian
golf architects, such as Howard Watson and Graham Cooke, have
incorporated rolling terrain, mature trees, and mountain vistas
into most of the regions layouts. Strategically placed bunkers
and lakes ensure a challenging test for every caliber of golfer.
Local birds and wildlife are attracted by ponds and natural
protected areas. Unwind with a spa treatment in a relaxing local
resort…just the thing to ease those tired muscles after a round
in the fresh mountain air.
