La Tempête Golf Club: Top-quality golf courses around Québec City are not in overly abundant supply. But any shortfall in quantity is compensated by the quality of the area's standard bearer, La Tempête (in English The Storm or Tempest). You'll find this modern and mainly links-style layout tucked away in a quiet rural setting, just a few miles south of Quebec City across the St Lawrence River.
The originally flat terrain at La Tempête has been stylishly contoured and mounded to create an easy-walking big dimension course. It's a predominantly open championship layout that big hitters will enjoy, providing care is taken on the occasions when water threatens. This is certainly the case on the lake-hugging opening and closing duo on the back-nine. The short doglegging par-4 4th and 8th holes also bring ponds into play.
In the middle section of each nine-hole loop, a tree-lined environment replaces the more customary open linksy terrain. The par-4 6th introduces the tree-lined holes (two on the front-nine, four on the back). On this testing hole a meandering stream is in play both from the tee and on your approach to the green. What is supposedly a two-shotter (to the green), has been known to require one or two more than that.
Integral to the layout's handsome features, the good-width nicely rolling fairways are flanked by attractive and plentiful bunkering. Good-size stylish sand traps are also significantly in play around the large fast sloping greens.
Among a nicely varied collection of par-3s, the strongly bunker-defended 15th enjoys an attractive backdrop of tall pines. At the 11th and 17th, played in the open terrain, just a single bunker is needed at each hole, but water most definitely provides the real danger.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.

La Tempête is located just across the mighty St Lawrence River on the outskirts of Québec City, one of the most charming and historic cities in Canada. The city's most famous landmarks include the very impressive Château Frontenac, a Fairmont hotel which dominates the skyline, and La Citadelle, a large intact fortress. The old parts of the city, both Upper and Lower, are understandably a magnet for tourists, full of charming hotels, excellent restaurants, scenic outlooks and historic buildings.
La Tempête has hosted a number of top-level events, including the PGA Champions Tour's Quebec Championship. For more details see: Top Golf Tournaments at La Tempête Golf Club.
Tournament of Champions: the PGA Tour’s calendar-year starts, as it has done since 1999, with this iconic event in Hawaii. The field is drawn from players who won a PGA Tour event in 2022, or were amongst the top 30 in last year’s FedEx Cup final standings (Jan 6-9).
Desert Swing: the European (DP World) Tour launches into 2023 with three events in its UAE “Desert Swing”. Up first is the Abu Dhabi Championship (Jan 19-22), followed by the Dubai Desert Classic (Jan 26-29) and the Ras Al Kaimah Championship (Feb 2-5).
Kathy Whitworth: the end of 2022 saw the passing of LPGA Tour legend Kathy Whitworth. Her 88 LPGA Tour victories is more than achieved by any other golfer on either the LPGA or PGA Tours. Amongst her victories were six major championship titles.
Barry Lane: the golfing world was also saddened by the passing of Barry Lane, one of the European Tour and European Senior Tours most popular players. Enjoying success on both Tours, Lane was know for his excellent ball-striking and amiable personality.
