Length of the golf season in the Montreal area (north shore)
Back to Golf Front Page


Lots of people ask me how long the golf season is in the Montreal area. This chart should give you a feeling of how long the season can be. Before my retirement in 2010, I could only play on weekends in late fall so that might have influenced hanging up the clubs early.
