    I had high expectations for this golf course as many people had recommended it to me. Perhaps my expectations were too high as I found the course conditions not the best although the course layout was very interesting. Montpellier is quite hilly so I didn't expect to see very many walkers. The course does have a peculiar layout. Some route signage is very clear but you'll have to keep your eyes open for it or take a look at the scorecard.
    The greens have many varying sizes and shapes and some are quite large. I did find the speed of the greens to be on the slow side. The fairways were a bit rough and you can expect a lot of uneven lies. Hilly courses often have difficulty in certain areas to grow grass as sun and water can have difficulty reaching areas. Montpellier is no different.
    Hole #4, a par 3, is very picturesque. The sad point about this hole is that it all tees are elevated and you cannot see the green from any tee deck. This means you are hitting blindly to an island green. You'll definitely need a spotter to let you know where your ball lands.
    A tough par 5 is hole #11. The fairway is a dogleg right around a pond which can have water come into play on almost every shot. This would be a great finishing hole.
    I also liked the par 4 15th. A nice looking layout from the tee.
    Many of the holes have hidden greens and playing the course more than once should help lower your score. The simple 18th hole was a weak finisher but does allow everyone to pound away.
    A nice touch was the signage around the greens for cart control. A red 'X' meant go the other side.
    Bring some bug spray. The black flies were certainly an issue on the day we were there.
    Montpellier was previously owned by Stephane Richer, a former hockey player of the Montreal Canadiens. The course is now under new management for the 2015 season.
