Golf Season … Off to a Good Start!

I have noticed there are two kinds of people : those that meander through nature appreciating the pure air, the smell of fresh grass, the tall old-growth trees and the restful lakes and streams. The others have transformed it into a playing field dotted with small holes in which they strive to fill with white balls…
It is to the latter that I refer to today!


Only Golf-In Golf-Out Hotel
of the Region

Your summer passion is important to us. We have negotiated for you the best rates per player at all seven courses when you book your stay at the hotel. In fact, we are the only hotel that offers golf carts right at the door. Plus, Le Grand Lodge has put together an array of packages to suit all different needs and budgets from a simple round of golf among friends to organizing a full out tournament on some of the most beautiful courses in the Laurentians.


Grands Prix: François Moves
On to the Next Level

On another note, we are pleased and proud to announce that François Desrochers, Service and Conventions Manager at Le Grand Lodge, won the title of Tourist Employee of the Year on the regional level of the Grands Prix du tourisme québécois.
