Fred Couples designed a winner at Le Maitre G.C. in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec

MONT-TREMBLANT, Quebec, Canada -- Without a membership, there's only one way to access Le Maitre, a private club run by ClubLink in the Laurentian Mountains roughly 75 miles northwest of Montreal. A stay-and-play with a resort hotel such as the Fairmont Tremblant opens doors to Le Maitre, which means "the master" in French.

In 2012, ScoreGolf ranked the 7,025-yard Le Maitre golf course no. 37 among the top 100 golf courses in Canada. The golf course, which opened in 2001, doesn't possess the wild terrain of the neighboring resort courses of Le Geant, Le Diable and La Bete. It's flatter (although there are some nice elevated tees on the back nine) and much more user friendly off the tee.

Fred Couples -- with an assist from Graham Cooke, Gene Bates and Darrell Huxham -- built wide fairways that feel so different from those other nearby tracks. Finding the short grass does not guarantee par, though, unless you're on the proper angle to the green.

Water and wetlands squeeze at least half the holes at Le Maitre. A pond featuring a landscaped waterfall separates the sixth and 18th greens. The region's best clubhouse sits on the ridge as a backdrop.
