For all golf lovers, this day must be part of your stay in the Gatineau Valley. The “Domaine de l’Ile Patry”, located on the beautiful Gatineau River, has a beautiful 9 holes golf course of excellent quality. With or without a cart, you can play on the course peacefully. This package starts in Messines with a 15 km bike ride. The bike path is mainly in the forest on an unpaved path that runs along the Gatineau River. You’ll finish your bike ride downhill to the river where a former Schoolhouse was renovated, pleasing the history and culture enthusiast. You will leave your bike there to take your boat. You will then tavel about 3.5 km on water to get to the “Ile Patry”. The ride on the water is easy and fun because you’re drifting with the current. At your destination, you will be warmly welcomed by the owners (Michael and Denise Patry). After a picnic, you can play a round of golf. After your game, you will have the choice to go way back via the same route, or use our shuttle service to Messines.
