Portfolio

Since the beginning of my career, I have had the privilege to participate in many interesting projects, either as a Design Associate, or as a Golf Course Architect. Here are six feature projects I have had the chance to work on during the past few years, followed by a partial list of the projects in which I have had a major involvement.

Club de Golf de la Vallée du Richelieu – Ste-Julie, Quebec*

The Club de Golf de la Vallée du Richelieu has almost completely rebuilt it's Vercheres Course over the past few years. Outdated by years of use and poor construction materials, the Vercheres Course was not as much appreciated by the members of the club who prefered the Rouville Course, often perceived as more interesting. The situation has now reversed. The works done on the Vercheres Course have now transformed it into a distinctive course unique in Quebec and made it the course prefered by the members.

Club de Golf Islesmere – Laval, Quebec*

All the bunkers of the famous Club de Golf Islesmere's 27 holes were completely rebuilt during the past few years. The works had two main goals, refurbish the bunkers which were often filled with rocks, and harmonize the bunker styles between the club's three nines to ensure that the third nine, often perceived by the members as less interesting and less appealing, could blend with the first two nines, built more than 40 years before. Today, with their pronounced faces and caracteristic shapes, the new bunkers are recognized as some of the most beautiful and fearsome in Quebec.

The Lakes Golf Club – East Bay, Nova-Scotia*

Situated on both sides of the slopes of Ski Ben Eoin, in East Bay, Nova Scotia, The Lakes Golf Club pulls much of its strength from the ingenious use of plateaus located on the side of the mountain. While the course is set amongst a rugged, tumbling landscape, the holes feel in close harmony with their surroundings. This creates an experience that is accessible and interesting to all calibers of golfers, while providing spectacular views of the majestic Bras d'Or Lake, located nearby.

Club de Golf Les Boisés de Joly – St-Janvier-de-Joly, Quebec*

Planned and built with a modest budget, the Club de Golf Les Boisés de Joly offers an exciting course presenting golfers with many options and caracteristics often associated with scottish links courses. Open to winds and built on sandy soils, the course offers playing conditions that are firm and fast, with large expanses of fescue grasses that create attractive contrasts of colours and textures.

Club de Golf Le Parcours du Cerf - Faon Course- Longueuil, Quebec**

Perfectly integrated in its community, Le Parcours du Cerf was built in the early 90's as the centerpiece of a new vast residential development that allowed the city of Longueuil to expand in an area of the city which was previously undevelopded. Up until recently, some land parcels that were still unoccupied and bordered by indutrial buildings were used by the club as storage zones. Substantial works were done to relocate two holes on those parcels in order to develop more home sites while still preserving the caracter of the original course.

Golf de la Pourvoirie Au Pays de Réal Massé - St-Zénon, Quebec

La Pourvoirie Au Pays de Réal Massé has been known for many years as one of the best outfitter in Quebec. Visitors of this great destination will soon have access to a 9-hole par three course offering many challenges and an endless variety of holes and course setups making great use of the native rocks and vegetation. Most holes will feature many angles of approach, different lengths and teing areas offering different lies in order to encourage players to have fun during their informal rounds.
