My five favourite golf courses in America

This post will focus on the American continent where it is quite easy to find extraordinary golf courses !

- Fairmont Le Château Montebello ( : About an hour north of Montreal in the French-speaking province of Quebec lies one of the greatest concentrations of mountain golf courses in North America. Built in 1931, Fairmont Le Château Montebello is located on the north shore of the Ottawa River, midway between Ottawa and Montréal, its spectacular layout is literally carved from the granite slopes of the Canadian Shield. The hotel next door is one of the largest log buildings in the world. There is also an interesting historic manor house on the property.

- Mystic Dunes Golf ( : I love the name, I love the location and I love the course itself. Groves and wetlands compose the setting. "If you don't believe that this course will bring out every club in the bag and test your nerve, then no course will."  - Phil Sokol, The Sports Network

- Cancun Golf Club ( : a heavenly destination, e.g Cancun, in Yucatan Peninsula. This Mexican golf course offers a complete delight thanks to its tropical climate, the emerald color of the see, pristine white beaches and its coral reefs, which become scarcer and scarcer on Earth. Moreover, playing golf while being watched by ancient Mayas is quite exciting, isn't it? Golf course designed in 1976 by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. For all levels.

- Costa do Sauipe ( : this Brazilian Golf course is not far from Salvador do Bahia, one of the most beautiful city in Brazil where you can find almost 1000 churches and take part to huge parties. How paradoxical ! The golf course is a 300-yard driving range for swing practicing and an approximately 956,79 square yards putting green. Very welcoming atmosphere. Various amenities for business meetings are to be mentioned.

- Isla Viveros ( : the fifth rank in my list because it is not finished yet but the first in my heart. Isla Viveros Golf (Panama) will be a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. I do believe it is enough to describe what will be this incredible course all owners will have priority access to. It will be an 18 holes, Highest PGA standards and PAR 72 golf course. Competitions will be of course organized. This Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course is set to be one of the most impressive Golf Course in the World. With its tropical vegetation, its natural elevations making it a very challenging golf course. Not only be the play challenging but beautiful due to its 15 out 18 holes with ocean views. Viveros Resort the only Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course in Panama, this course is in fact unique in Panama also due to its beautiful views of the Ocean.
