Le Manoir Richelieu Golf course

Nestled majestically between the sea and the mountains, Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu is a vision of historical splendor, a real source of inspiration for artists and a delight to both business and leisure travelers. Outdoor activities abound here - whale-watching cruises on the St. Lawrence River, downhill and cross-country skiing, horseback riding and tennis are but a few of the activities that would make your stay worthwhile.

There is even an exciting world-class casino and an excellent golf course.

The Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu Golf Club enjoys an enviable reputation. In fact, golfing at Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu dates back to 1923, when guests could golf on a nine-hole course designed by golf pro Harry Black. The golf course was set on agricultural land.

Canada Steamship Lines bought the hotel shortly thereafter. With the growing popularity of the game and the Charlevoix area as well, the company decided to invest in a new golf course, which would be more accessible and far more spectacular. Architect Herbert Strong was hired to design the new green gem that was opened in 1925 and inaugurated by William H. Taft, President of the United States of America. Herbert Strong had already designed Lakeview in Toronto, as well as Inwood and The Engineers on Long Island, and his incomparable golf course was carefully laid out over the rolling hills by the Manoir, overlooking the mighty St. Lawrence River.

Today, the Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu Golf Club is a world-class golf complex and includes a water supply infrastructure, a course designed by Graham Cooke & Associates, one of the largest architectural firms for golf clubs in Canada, as well as a new driving range. Built near the 1st hole and driving range, the clubhouse offers the most outstanding view of La Malbaie and the panoramic trail connects the hotel to the golf course. 

With its exceptional view on the St. Lawrence, it makes the player's experience unique by combining the challenging conquest of a high calibre golf course and an awe-inspiring landscape.

The course is home to several tournaments, including the Jackie Desmarais Open and the Coupe Casino de Charlevoix.
