Have you been daydreaming what life would be like if you had enough money to do what you wanted, and tired of all the mansions in the market now? First, welcome to the club, because we (for thick and thin) do it weekly. And secondly, instead of buying a basic mansion with a golf simulator, why not skip that step and buy an 18-hole golf course that’s currently on sale?
Say hello to Falcon, one of the best public courses in Quebec.
Just outside of Montreal, the Falcon was built in 2001 by Graham Cooke, a prominent golf engineering firm that has done everything from inner city courses to golf courses to tourist resorts and private clubs. Over the years, their designs have won a number of awards, ranging from the best new Canadian golf course to the best public golf course in the world.

Fortunately, Falcon is no exception. Combining a riverfront location, ample trees, and water features, it’s no wonder the course has been ranked among the best value courses in Canada for 2021. What’s more, it was a top pick from Quebec, so you won’t have any issues getting people out to play it.
Playing over 7,000 yards of tips, the course can suit nearly any skill level, from beginners to pro. Need to work on your game before you start playing holeshot with some friends? Don’t worry, there’s also a training range for getting reps.
While the $6,500,000 price tag is undoubtedly out of reach, the truth is that it’s on par with most mansions for sale in Metro Vancouver and Toronto.

Plus, it’s not hard to spend a lot in cities like Calgary or Edmonton, if you know where to look. Such a castle-like mansion in Calgary is listed for $8.75 million…
Assuming you get the course lock, stock and barrel, you’ll no doubt blow the amenities of one of those palaces out of the water. Tons of bathrooms around the property? Check. Huge backyard and some golf carts to drive around? Double check. A private lake for you to walk around in the middle of and contemplate your leisure life? Triple check. Really, all we think it needs is a nice little cottage somewhere so you can rest, read books about golf, and have a good grounds location.
Then, you can live out the rest of your days as the “golf fan who bought a course just for fun.” Is this how we think most folk stories of the caliphate will end? definitely. And in our daydreams, we’ll beat them up with it.
