Gatineau has finally completed their new clubhouse and it is quite impressive (voted Best Clubhouse by Flagstick readers in 2012). Now I'm looking forward to having a cool frosty one after my next round at the Gatineau Golf Club.

The great thing about Gatineau is the greens. Very large, very good shape, and rolls are true. Minor contours but for most greens take straight aim at the hole.
The pin placement is a guess as all flags are the same colour.
The 150 markers are visible but anything else is tough to find. Fairways are in rough shape and the ground is hard with visible rocks. #4 fairway was newly sodded.
Tees were sometimes exceptional (like #12) while others were much lower in quality. No signage was visible at tees.
The course is rather uninteresting in design. I can't think of a signature hole or a distinct feature.
Bunkers have no lips and you can often roll a ball out with a low lofted club or even your putter. There seems to be a number of holes with large bunkers behind the greens but they should never come in to play because of the large greens.
Ouch! Gatineau is a little on the pricey side for no clubhouse and a temporary roadway and parking lot. Gatineau does offer a free play for a purchased round but if you don't plan to return you may wish to look for another course in the area.
The course produced my best round of the year (30 games to date). I would expect to shoot a similar round next visit because of the forgiveness of the large greens.
Gatineau will have a pretty finishing hole when the clubhouse is completed and the course route is changed. Clubhouse construction is to begin this fall.
In it's current state much of the staff are hidden from view. I have chatted to the pro and dealt with a student in the pro shop. All were pleasant and indications are that bigger and better things are to come.
There's currently no place for an after round refreshment as the pro shop is working out of a trailer. The entrance is long and bumpy and the parking lot isn't any better.
The final course layout is complete but in it's current state you start on hole #15. This confused me on my first visit as I have to ask for directions. Once your round is started you shouldn't have any trouble finding your way around the course. There's a bit of a hike between holes #6, #7, and #8. The cart paths are rough throughout.
Gatineau will require an updated review when all construction is completed. Some of the categories should show significant improvement at that time.
