Our Story

Since January 20, 2021, skating on a golf course is a new winter activity that Gatineau residents can enjoy at the Touraine Golf Club. Owner Carl Chénier, along with his wife Nancy Lourenço and members of his team, decided to build a skating trail over five kilometres long on his golf course to give area residents the opportunity to exercise and do a fun activity during the winter months. The trail passes through golf cart paths and some strategic spots on the green.
