Pros: Bourget is a nice, easy course to play and GREAT for beginners. The holes are very short and offer the chance to really learn the game.
The course had a couple fun holes to play that gave you multiple options to the basket.
The course was filled with out of bounds and could make things challenging if the out of bounds is played.
The course is a very quick play. You could easily play the 12 hole course twice through in under 2 hours. If you are short on time this could be a good course to play.
The tee signs on the short tees (there are no tee signs for the long tees) are nice.
Cons: Unfortunately this course was borderline unplayable when a friend of mine and I tried to play the course in July 2014. Not only was basket 6 completely missing but 3 of the long tees could not be found. The short tees had nice signs and included distances for the long tees but the long tees did not include signs. It was extremely challenging to find some of the long tees and a few were nowhere to be found.
A few of the holes played in and around various activities in the park (skate park, track field, baseball field) and came dangerously close to those areas. I could see some errant shots really becoming very dangerous to others enjoying the park.
A few of the holes also played right along a barbed wire fence that seemingly led to a factory of some sorts. A disc could have flown over this fence and on one hole a disc in our group hit the top of the fence. I would just advise anyone playing these holes to be careful about throwing a disc over the fence.
Multiple holes play over and around walking paths in the park and while they aren't necessarily difficult shots, they could be dangerous.
As mentioned above, basket 6 was literally nowhere to be found on the day we played. A local that we talked with was very confused as well. We ended up making a hole and played to hole 8's basket and then wrapped back to hole 7.
The short teepads were very easy. Some of the holes were very short and could be jump puttable. This is a good thing for beginners but there was little challenge to these teepads so its recommended that you "try" to find the long tees even though it was very challenging.
Other Thoughts: It would recommend playing this course with a local or playing the course in Longueuil, QC which is about 10 miles away. Its just a little frustrating to play a course with a basket missing and with teepad areas that are hard to find but I do understand this is an area that disc golf is not hugely popular so I applaud the effort. It was a nice, easy course to play and didn't require a lot of skill or effort.
