Quebec

Québec is the only predominantly French-speaking province in Canada with less than 10% of the population using English as the language of choice. The strength of nationalistic feeling in Québec is such that several independence referendums have been held in recent years, with the last one in 1995 defeated only by a very slim margin. And so, for the time being at least, Québecers remain within the mainstream Canadian political structure but for how much longer?

Golf Québec was established in 2005 when the men of the Québec Golf Association joined forces with the women from the Québec Branch of the Canadian Ladies Golf Association to form a provincial governing body that now looks after the golfing interests of around 62,000 members in almost 300 clubs, ranging from Matane GC in the north east to Brockville CC in the south west.

Québec is home to the oldest golf club in North America - Royal Montreal - and this venerable old club was also first to receive the “Royal” prefix (in 1884), first to allow women members (in 1891) and first to host the Canadian Open (in 1904). The club moved to Ile Bizard in the late 1950s where Dick Wilson constructed the Blue and Red 18-hole courses for the membership.
