Travel to Brudenell River Golf Course located approximately 45 minutes east of Charlottetown (18 holes, 5,655 yards, Par 70). The Robinson-designed Brudenell course is extremely scenic, particularly the holes that stretch alongside the Brudenell River. Brudenell has been a favourite playing ground for PEI's own top LPGA golfer, Lorie Kane.
Start the day off by golfing the newly opened Dundarave Golf Course (18 holes, 7,284 yards, Par 72) before driving approximately 30 minutes to Belfast Highland Greens ( 9 holes, 3,209 yards, Par 37). Designed by Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry, Dundarave opened in July 1999 and along with its adjacent course, Brudenell, forms half of Atlantic Canada's first 36-hole championship facility.
An early start this morning will allow you to play Avondale Golf Course (18 holes, 6,900 yards, Par 72) on your way to Lakeside where you can enjoy golfing the The Links At Crowbush Cove (18 holes, 6,901 yards, Par 72). This stunning Tom McBroom-designed course has nine water holes and eight holes near the famous dunes on the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Crowbush was awarded a 5-star rating from Golf Digest and is listed among the "Sweet Sixteen" top courses worldwide.
You'll be heading westward on the Island to play Glasgow Hills Resort & Golf Club, (18 holes, 6,800 yards, Par 72) approximately 1 hour from Crowbush. This course, designed by noted architect, Les Furber, features sensational views of the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Clyde River.
Travelling toward PEI's north shore, you can spend the morning golfing the historic Green Gables Golf Course (18 holes, 6,459 yards, Par 72), located in Cavendish, PEI National Park. Designed by Stanley Thompson and built in 1939, this course was an early bird to the PEI golf scene. Just off the 11th fairway is Green Gables, the fictional home of Anne Shirley in Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic tale, Anne of Green Gables.
An hour's drive westward will take you to the next golfing destination at Mill River (18 holes, 6,826 yards, Par 72). Designed by Robbie Robinson and Graham Cooke, this course is continually rated as one of North America's best golf values, and one of the sternest tests in Eastern Canada.
Golf Mill River and head back to Charlottetown, an approximate two-hour drive eastward, where you can overnight at any of the first-class accommodations available downtown. Enjoy an evening dining in one of the fine restaurants in Charlottetown, and perhaps take in one of the offerings at the Confederation Centre of the Arts.
Within a ten minute drive east of Charlottetown, you'll arrive at the Fox Meadow Golf and Country Club (18 holes, 6,835 yards, Par 72). Designed by Rob Heaslip, this championship class course overlooks the historic and beautiful Hillsborough River.
This brings you to the end of a week-long golfing adventure. If you'd like to add more courses to your itinerary, be sure to check out our map of Prince Edward Island courses for more information.
