Congratulations to the ADGM crew who , for all intents and purposes, completed the installation of a new 18 basket course...along with a stategically placed practice basket....and 5 alternative basket placement sleeves. The signage is not up yet and the tee's aren't numbered, but the hard part is done.
The course, Isle Charron, is the same location that was used regularily for many events in the last few years. Technically the course is in Longueuil, just across the river from downtown Montreal.
For those who aren't familiar with the course, you can contact the ADGM forum for more details http://forum.adgm.ca/viewtopic.php?id=1950

Many participated in the realization of this project, a full team effort , but a special appreciation is granted to the ADGM president Fabrice Heloir who with a commendable display of outstanding leadership , patiently navigated through all the hoops and barrels thrown at him with a rare and impressive determination. His unfailing commitment to the project from the ground up , played a tremendous part and has allowed the results we can all enjoy today ! Haledeuce-yah !!!

I will be very soon taking a day off work to drive down there and play 36 holes. When Igance was put in I took the day and arrived with my bike at 10am. Played until 3pm and then biked around downtown before getting dinner and driving home. Home for 11pm. Met tonnes of people on the course and had a great day. I will post when I will be doing this in case there is interest. It is 2-1/2 hrs driving if you do the limit.

So excited.

I played this course at the Grosse Coupe last year. It's a beautiful course.

Congratulations ADGM.

Kyle, I may be interested in heading up there with you.

Hey Adam,

This is similar to the layout you played last year, but a little different.

We've had so very few golfers from Ottawa travel to this jewel of a city to play disc golf--so few compared to the amount who have headed west on the 40--and we hope that this course will tempt a few more of you adventurous souls to cross the international date line--passports no longer needed although TSA aganet will pat you down at the border--and come play our new toy.

La Grosse Coupe sera organiser en le 8 septembre, et tout le monde est invite!

We hope to see you in two official languages, in full colour, scratch and sniff, and toute de suite!!!

Rock on Ottawa!

Why would Americans be guarding the Canada/Quebec border?

Armed militias guard the impermeable QC/ON border, don't they?

So I am having a hard time getting a reference for size here. What would you say the average hole distance or total distance is for the course? Are most holes longer than 100m/330ft, shorter? From the aerial it looks like it is a monster D course.

They're working on tee signs so I assume distances will come eventually.

I usually use google earth's measure tool in reference to the course map, crude but effective.

If the layout is anything similar to the temp course I played there last year, most holes were definitely under 400 ft.

At the time, it really wasn't a big arm course.

It's all about scary greens, OBs, a few water holes, wind can be a huge factor over there as well. I think it's a nice course, no facilities or stores close by are the only lemons.

I have started to finalize my plans and it looks like I will be driving down to Montreal Thursday Aug 1st to play this course. PM me if you want to join. I will post on ADGM to try to get some locals out. I am thinking three rounds with some good breaks between and dinner at St.Laraunt/Clarke. Home for 11pm. This looks like a gem.

It is.

Ben, Surge and I played it a couple of weekends ago. Very fun.

The shorts play short and I spent most of the time driving past the basket and having to come back at the target. Most of the greens are on hills and offer awesome putting opportunities, making the pars seem like white ball pars (1 to the green, 2 putts = par 3). Holes 1, 8 and 9 are almost identical and really the only disappointment on the shorts.

The longs are really, really fun and there are no holes the same. You'll get flat fairways, elevated fairways, fairways falling away, wooded fairways... A lot of fun and with the wind that gets going on the island, it's a great challenge.

I shot a -7 (one bogie) from the shorts and a -5 (bogie free, no 4s) from the longs (there are par 4s out there, but I considered them all as par 3s for casual scoring, so I shot a 49 from the longs).

It's easy to get to as you never have to leave the highways until the island and we had the course (and most of the park) to ourselves. Like Serge mentioned earlier, there is no store or place to eat anywhere convenient near the course. Plan ahead.

We left @ 1:30, arrived @ 3:45, played til 7:45 (2.5 rounds) and home by 10. Great day.
