Golf Vacations In Beautiful Pei
Not only is Prince Edward Island’s landscape a feast for the eyes but there is something for all golf enthusiasts, regardless of skill level. Canada’s smallest province has gained the reputation of being the country’s number one golf vacation spot, not just once, but twice! PEI boasts over 26 courses in total ranging from executive, intermediate and beginner skill levels. The Island has also played host in recent years to a number of professional golfers such as in the 1998 “Skins Game” with Fred Couples, Mark O’Meara, Mike Weir and John Daly. Mike Weir was once again on the Island for the Making the Connection Legends of Golf event in July 2007 where he and golf legend Vijay Singh played The Links at Crowbush Cove in beautiful Lakeside, PEI. If it is an executive course you seek, there is one on every corner of the island. If you happen to be in the west give Mill River a whirl.
As a par 72 course with 14 par 4 and above holes and greens fees at $45- $60, why waste another second? In the north Glasgow Hills is another par 72 designed by Les Furber and is classified as a ‘World Class Signature Golf Course”. If visiting central Prince Edward Island the Glen Afton Golf Club is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. This par 70 course offers the biggest bang for its buck, $26- $33 for a round - an absolute steal. When you finally get out to the eastern side of PEI be sure to pay the red sandstone championship Dundarave golf course a visit. After opening in July of 1999 it was quick to grab the attention of Golf Digest and SCORE golf magazine with both giving it top marks.
These courses promise to give you the opportunity to use all of the clubs in your bag If you love the game but are not ready to play with the pros, why not brush up on one of Prince Edward Island’s many 9 hole golf courses. Not only will it do some good to brush up, these courses are a great way to include the whole family. If your kids have an interest, or someone looking to play a shorter game is along, visiting St. Felix in the West, Forest Hills in the North, Country View in central PEI or Eagles View in the East are all great ways to get out and enjoy the sights PEI has to offer. If you happen to be feeling ambitious you could try your luck with a double header at the beautiful Brudenell River and adjoining Dundarave. Offering 36 holes this day of golf promises to be quite memorable. The next time you think about planning a golf vacation, keep Prince Edward Island top of mind!.
