I am coming to New Brunswick in October to visit with family and staying near Shediac. We want to come play a round of golf in PEI and do a costal drive! Based on distance, what would you recommend?

Good afternoon from Prince Edward Island,

With over 400 fairways, Prince Edward Island is a golfer's paradise. 

Once you cross the Confederation Bridge to Borden-Carleton, you have several options for championships golf courses within 40 minutes along our Central Coastal Drive. Here are three recommendations:

  1. Countryview Golf Club past Cornwall in Fairview
  2. Andersons Creek in Stanley Bridge
  3. Glasgow Hills in New Glasgow

Please call in advance to check on availability of tee times.

The Central Coastal Drive is made up of Red Sands Shore in the south and Green Gables Shore to the north. You'll enjoy some of PEI's most scenic landscapes, red cliffs, white-sand beaches and farmland views - not to mention the beautiful fall foliage. 

And, just a reminder that non-residents must apply, in advance, for a PEI Pass in order to enter Prince Edward Island. 

Have a great game and a great visit.
