Only 10 minutes from downtown Ottawa, Club de golf Hautes Plaines has the most exciting topography of any club in the National Capital Region. Built in 1983 and redesigned by acclaimed Montreal architect Graham Cooke, the tree-lined fairways and numerous bunkers challenge players to think strategically and take risks.

The greens were recently punched so it was difficult to give a true evaluation. Reasonably fast for the condition they were in.
The fairways were in excellent shape. Large divots were taken often. Lots of marked sprinkler head yardages.
A mixture of both good and bad. On a few tees it was difficult to find flat footing. This makes it difficult for someone like myself who is not good with uneven lies.
Not a long course but some of the holes are very interesting. The short par 4 #6 is a challenge for club selection. The par 5 #16 has a difficult tee shot hitting blindly uphill for which you don't want to be short.
Hautes Plaines is a course owned by ClubLink so either join the club or find a member to play with.
A difficult course with a great deal of elevation change. Club selection is vital. It's an easy course to run the score up but the design of the course makes it very playable for short hitters.
At the high point of the course you get a great view of the surrounding city of Gatineau. On only a few holes do you see homes. Hautes Plaines is a city course where you feel like you're in the country.
Not much encounter with any staff. After paying we only saw the starter, followed by the beverage cart on hole #14.
Large parking lot on opposite side of the road from the clubhouse.
The clubhouse is clean and spacious.
Course of play seems to follow consistently with where you figure things should be. Only on hole #11 did I have to look around to see which way to go.
The course is a short but difficult walk.
Ball washers positioned nicely.
It appears all ClubLink scorecards are designed the same.
I played this course about 20 years ago when it was called, "The Dome". Since that time the course has changed hands and the layout has been greatly improved. I hardly remembered any of the course.
A bit of a walk from parking lot to clubhouse if you're undecided to take a power cart or not.
