golf

We are planning a trip to Quebec City this fall and would like to spend 3 or 4 days exploring the area around Quebec City as well. Are there any nice resorts that have golf courses or alternatively inns located near golf courses in this area of Canada? Thanks for any info.

If you want to drive to LaMalbaie (90 mins. from QC), there is a championship golf course at the Manoir Richelieu (Fairmont resort).

Check out:

Choose "Greater Quebec" or "Charlevoix"

Check out Mont Ste. Anne at www.mont-sainte-anne.com. It's about 20 minutes to Old Quebec across a good highway but there is alot to see and do in the area, even in summer. We ski there every winter and stay at Chalets Mont Ste. Anne, which I would highly recommend for a group of any size.The web address is www.chaletsmontste-anne.com. They are right at the base of the mountain which offers gondola rides, hiking & mountain biking in the summer and are right next to two golf courses which are supposed to be excellent though I haven't tried them myself. There are several nice restaurants in the area and you really are an easy drive into Quebec City. The units are townhouse style with a loft & bath up and 1-3 bedrooms & bath down, full kitchen & laundry with all utensils and linens, good size living & dining rooms and deck. Stayed there 13 times to ski and haven't been disappointed yet. They are very reasonable for a group but if it's just a couple, Chateau Mont Ste. Anne is also at the base of the mountain and is very nice. I find the restaurants & bar at the hotel to be expensive. There are several nice properties in the area which is called Beaupre. For a traditional Quebec inn, check out Auberge Baker, a very old but neat premise or Auberge La Camarine which is new but in a traditional style.

We get to Quebec every chance we have. The fall season is, I think, the best for enjoying the old city! The manager of the following private home accomodation is very interested in golf and pulls special weekends together for golfers and executives. He can be reached through www.vrbo.com #21909. Hope this helps. Enjoy, this will be great!

Hi windward
Louis P is right about the manoir richelieu, but there are a couple of other interesting courses around the malbaie that are worth trying, including the municipal course at Baie St. Paul (great view of the river and town below) and Murray Bay golf course (one of the oldest course in Canada).
In Quebec you can stay in the old city and easily get to the courses we play like Stoneham: the west course is mountainous and a little more challenging than the east (you can also stay close by at Lac Delage resort) Stoneham is not a perfect course, but it's friendly and pretty; Portneuf golf club - a beautiful 36 hole lay out on highway 40 towards Montreal at Pont ROuge - our preferred course these days; the challenging and beautiful Ile D'orleans St. Laurent course, where we used to play, but there has been a strike there and I am not sure if things are settled this year. It's worth playing if the strike is over, just for the view coming down the sixth hole, but it's a tough, windy course; and Le Castor, the former officers only course for army types from Valcartier, but now a great smaller public course (where we have our biggest annual tournament every year).
We used to play at Mont St. ANne, and it's a nice course in great resort condition, but they've raised prices well beyond the 22-23 bucks we usually pay for our twilight rounds!Have fun, Fall is the best time to play here.
