The Rules of Golf According to Édouard | Handicap and Club Competitions
It's this time of year where all golf clubs are presenting their last championship. Some of them use two weekends, others concentrate their activities in the long Labour Day weekend. It's also a good time for many to play one last competitive round and, for some, it is very serious business. Read more in Édouard's blog on the Rules of Golf on Golf Martial Lapointe (in French)...

To contact our Rules of Golf Chairman, please send an e-mail to erivard@golfquebec.org.

My Story | Rémi Bouchard
This week, GolfQuebecMedias meets with Rémi Bouchard, a well-known golf professional who is representing the PGA of Québec on our Federation's Board of Director, but also the Golf Canada Region Director for Membership Development in Québec and New Brunswick.  "I remember my very first victory as a pro. It also was my first tournament on the Asian Tour. Yet, this was nothing compared to other competitions where my children actually were there to see me play. These are the memories that I cherish the most." Discover the story of Rémi Bouchard.

Your Golf Professional: Your Best Ally
The only difference between a great golf player and a PGA of Québec certified professional is the PGA card for which they worked so hard. This card is proof to many years of studying and training, both theorical and on the course. Whether you are looking for a great golf teacher to take a few lessons or need to hire a pro to manage your facilities, a PGA of Québec Golf Professional is always your best ally. Discover the work and role played by a PGA of Québec member (in French)...
