“Par Excellence” is a French phrase loosely meaning “the best of its kind” and the first thing I thought of when describing this mountain marvel. With spectacular views of Tremblant Village and the surrounding ski hills, Le Géant takes full advantage of the natural terrain. The well forested sweeping fairways are actually wider than they appear but the uneven lies, rocky outcroppings, and large deceptive greens definitely up the ante.
Even though water only comes into play on the 2nd hole, most of the greens are elevated so accuracy and club selection is important on your approach shots.
At first glance the par-5 17th hole looks reachable in two but your approach shot to an elevated green is dangerously situated over a hidden valley hazard, so buyers beware.
The 18th hole has been voted one of the best par-4’s in Canada and one the finest finishing holes anywhere as your elevated tee shot plunges some 150 feet with amazing views of Lake Tremblant.
Green fees range from CA$59 to $139 depending on the time of year.
