A busy summer for Tremblant golfs!

An eventful season is gearing up for Tremblant golf courses! Over the past few years, we have been offering a variety of activities to help golfers of all levels improve and better enjoy the sport. With programs for learning, new offers for children and special activities for our members, we want everyone to enjoy our magnificent golf courses and their beautiful natural environment.

For Learning

With a staff of certified CPGA teaching professionals and top-notch facilities, the Tremblant Golf Academy located on Le Diable has a lot to offer: state-of-the-art technology, golf clinics, private and semi-private lessons… And, most recently, a Spring Lessons Program and a Club de Frappe:

Spring Lessons

Kick off your season on the right track by following a series of lessons as soon as the courses open. From May 13 to June 16, 2017, the Tremblant Golf Academy offers 5 one-hour group lessons with a pro, at the rate of one lesson per week (always the same day). Open to all levels, you can follow your lesson either Saturday or Sunday from 12 pm to 1 pm or a weekday evening from 6 pm to 7 pm. At a very affordable price, our spring lessons even include an access to Le Diable or Le Géant courses after 4 pm before June 20, to practice your new skills.

Book now, places are limited!

Club de frappe

From July 4th to September 7th, no matter what your level of play, come perfect your technique with the Tremblant Golf Academy Club de Frappe. We offer meet-ups every Tuesday and Thursday from 5 pm to 6 pm for a total of 20 sessions. Our 2 pros will give you good advice during these supervised driving practices and you’ll have access to all of the facilities the Tremblant Golf Academy has to offer.

Topics covered: strokes, short play, sand trap, full swing, use of ES14 radar, video analysis V1.

For Children

Purple Tees

For kids and beginners, tee offs closer to the green are now available on both our golf courses. These purple tees allow children to have fun and make pars and birdies like the pros without having the pressure of following the rhythm of play or of delaying the other players.

Special rates all season

Get your kids golfing! In order to encourage the practice of the sport amongst young people, Le Diable and Le Géant offer free departures for children aged 15 and under for departures after 4 pm. This offer is valid throughout the summer, that is from May 12 to September 24, 2017, when the child is accompanied by a paying adult (one child per adult). For a departure between noon and 4 pm, they pay only $ 49.

Kids golf free week

In addition to the great rates described above, the Tremblant Golf courses will be participating in the Kids Golf Free week. Young people aged 15 and under will be able to play free, when accompanied by an adult, from July 3 to 7, 2017.

For members

Being able to play our championship courses every day. What a good idea! Conquer both of the Tremblant golf courses whenever you want with the Unlimited Access Links Card or the PM Pass. Both options offer multiple discounts to you and your guests as well as a host of privileges, such as the Members Evenings:

Members’ Evening

The perfect opportunity to have fun on the green of Le Diable golf course and continue the evening between golfers! A tournament, with simultaneous starts from 5 pm, precedes a dinner at the Club House restaurant at Le Diable, while a prize draw closes the evening. Member’s Evenings will be held three times during the season. Such a great way to meet old acquaintances or new members!

Playing in the rain – Pro tips for golfing Le Diable

14555246669_43b77ddecb_k (1)

Le Diable, made up of long, narrow fairways and a mountainous back nine, is known for its vast red-sand bunkers that give the course a nice level of difficulty. With 5 tee starts, all levels of players are welcome. It is also the golf course that marked the career of Mike Weir, for it was here that in 1999 he won the prestigious Telus World Skins Game.

This week, our professionals at golf Le Diable share their knowledge on a challenge that has marked most players. So, here are some tips for playing in the rain.

Tip 1: Stay positive!

It’s no secret that golf is a sport that requires mental discipline. Remaining positive despite the rain, your game and your day will not only be more enjoyable, but likely more successful. According to Daniel Bilodeau, Head Professional Instructor at Golf Le Diable, there is a good chance that a player in your party has already lost by the first hole, simply because he or she is in a negative environment. Use this to your advantage!

Tip 2: Have the right equipment

This point may seem obvious to some, but as in many sports the right equipment is essential. Shoes that are water resistant and a good rain coat can make your experience much more pleasant. In addition, it was recommended that we have more than one towel close at hand, to keep the hands dry on the golf club. Rain gloves are also an accessory that can give you an edge.

Tip 3: Anticipate a short roll

When the ground is wet, it is expected that the ball will react differently. If you anticipate a roll of 15 to 20 feet after landing on the green, the reality might be 5 to 10 feet when playing in the rain. Especially on a course built in lengths like Le Diable, it is important to know this when planning your play.

Tip 4: Consider the drive

Another tip for your shot in the rain is to think about taking a different club. To get the same distance as you would have in a drier environment, a longer club will help your ball travel farther, seeing as the rain will tend to push down the ball.

Tip 5: Visit the academy!

For the best advice, the Golf Academy in Tremblant is a must. A team of CPGA certified instructors provides customized individual or group lessons to improve your performance, no matter your level. In addition, it offers superior facilities, spread on 16 acres, with the best analysis software, a practice green of over 400 m2 and three sand pits with targets.

The best way to improve performance is to practice, even in the rain!
