Taking place each year in June, Portage’s Golf & Cycling tour gives its participants an unrivaled access to the prestigious and select Laval-sur-le-lac golf Club.
During the cycling tour, about fifty cyclists will tour the region’s most pastoral landscapes. Accompanied by professionnals from Avelocoaching (like Dominique Perras, a world-class cyclist and analyst for RDS). This tour, which accommodates cyclists of all levels and skill, also lets them visit many of the region’s points of interest, like the Oka Abbey or its national park. The more daring participants will also be able to prove their worth in a King of the Mountain type race on the Montée Robillard. The security of the group will be ensured by motorcyclists.
Meanwhile, the golfers will have the rare chance of playing on the exclusive Parcours Bleu, which is usually reserved for members of the Club. Designed around renowned Australian Sunbelt courses, the Parcours Bleu consists of 7 221 yards of hilly terrain and gives every category of golfer its fair share of flexibility and an all-around stimulating experience.
Cyclists and golfers will reunite afterwards for a cocktail on the club’s splendid terrace before the evening’s refined dinner. Now at its 22nd Edition, the event helps to raise funds entirely dedicated to Portage’s Francophone and Anglophone adolescents rehabilitaton programs.
It is because of its committee members, partners, participants and volunteers that this event is met with the utmost success year after year with 200 influential members of the Greater Montreal business community.
