Le Grand Vallon ; one of Quebec’s most challenging courses!

Classified 4-star course , Le Grand Vallon is highly renowned for its architecture : sitting at the foot of Mont-Sainte-Anne and offering a spectacular view of the mountain, the par 72 course gracefully spreads its fairways, 40 immaculate white sand traps and its 4 lakes. It is definitely one of the greatest golf challenges in Quebec, particularly its undulating greens.

01

Info

Aim for the right of the fairway when teeing off, because your shot will have a tendency to draw left. Aim for the left of the flag on the green for an uphill putt.

Info

Aim your tee shot to the right of the fairway because the slope will draw your ball back towards the center. This will set you up for a good shot to the green.

Info

Make sure to take into consideration the direction and strength of the wind to avoid the bunker guarding the right hand side of the green.

Info

You can hit the sand trap with your tee shot. The ideal spot is just to the right. Watch out for the tall grass on the right side of the fairway.

Info

Hit your tee shot left of the sand trap, then aim for the left center of the fairway on your second and make sure to leave your self at least 140 yards for your shot to the green. That should put you in the perfect spot for a good shot at the flag.

Info

There’s plenty of room for your tee shot on the right side of the fairway and the green is wide open. Keep your ball short of the flag for an uphill putt.

Info

Hit your tee shot towards the left hand side of the fairway for a better angle to the green and make sure to avoid the punishing sand trap short right of the green

Info

Bear in mind the increase in elevation of the green for your club selection as well as the fact that you want to avoid being long and left with your tee shot.

Info

Opt for precision over power on your tee shot. Make sure you leave yourself an uphill putt.

Info

To carry the left hand side of the tree line, you will need to carry your tee shot at least 225 yards for a much shorter approach to the green. However the safe shot is always in the middle of the fairway.

Info

Enjoy the view of the mountain, but pay attention to this well guarded green for your club selection; judging the correct distance is imperative.

Info

Aim your tee shot to the right of the fairway to avoid having to carry the fairway bunker on your second shot. The ideal placement for your approach to the green is on the left hand side of the fairway at 140 yards from the green.

Info

This is a long par 3 guarded by 2 deep sand traps leaving a narrow point entry to the green. Again, taking the strength and direction of the wind into consideration for your club selection is recommended.

Info

Long hitters can give themselves a chance to hit the green in two by playing their tee shot just right of the fairway bunker. However, trouble left and right of the green leaves little margin for error.

Info

If you avoid the sand trap on your tee shot, all you will have to worry about is the break in your putt. Be careful, putts often break more than they appear they will.

Info

A tee shot in the left hand side of the fairway is always the safe shot but a tee shot in the right side of the fairway leaves a better angle of approach for your shot to the green. This green has a pronounced back to front slope.

Info

Despite first impressions, a tee shot favouring the left hand side of the fairway leaves a more straight forward approach towards the green. A second shot between the two fairway bunkers will leave an approach of approximately 100 yards. Avoiding fairway bunkers is definitely recommended.

Info

You can carry the fairway bunker with a well struck tee shot leaving a shorter approach to a well protected 18th green. Make sure to enjoy the view of the mountain before making your way to the Anecdote veranda to enjoy refreshments while watching other golfers play the difficult 18th hole.
