    Last season I played a few other highly rated courses in the Mont Tremblant area (Le Geant & Le Diable) and I enjoyed La Bête more.
    Both the greens and fairways were in excellent condition. The greens were a very comfortable size with some minor contours. The green speed was a bit on the slow side as I expected them to be a bit quicker. The bunker sand has quality similar to the other courses in the area which means it was fairly dense and with quite a few stones. It is best to avoid them if possible.
    I'm not big on holes that requires a tee shot that is will be shorter than the approach to the green but there were a couple of holes of this nature at La Bête. Hole #2 is a par 4 that requires a sub 200 yard tee shot followed by long elevated 200 yard plus 2nd shot. Hole #9 is another similar hole to #2 but I believe a long hitter can clear the hazard to the lower fairway although the fairway is narrow.
    My favourite hole on the course was hole #4. A par 5 that provides a nice elevated tee shot while the second flows around a pond. The hole is sub 500 yards except from the tips so many will be able to reach the green in two. The green is slightly raised and protected by a large bunker on the water side.
    The five par 3's have varying tee shot yardages so you'll probably require a different club for each one.
    I found the back nine to be flatter and easier than the front. I was very impressed with the front nine and really enjoyed the elevation changes and hole design. The back nine left me wanting a bit more and wished the two nines were flipped for play.
    I thought the two Gray Rocks courses, La Belle and La Bête, shared the same clubhouse but this is not the case. The two courses are beside each other but each course operates as its own entity.
    The starter was very helpful and offered some advice before our round.
    The pro shop offered standard fare golf supplies to get you through a round and the clubhouse looked like a very friendly setting for an after dinner drink or meal.
