The Links at Crowbush Cove

Ranked #8 in Canada’s Top 100 Courses (and underrated!), The Links at Crowbush Cove is Prince Edward Island’s flagship course. It would justify a visit to the province if it was the only course on the entire island.  Designed by renowned architect Thomas McBroom and considered by many to be his masterpiece, this is a course you could play every day of your life.  At various points in the round you could be on the Atlantic coast in South Carolina or Florida, or you could be on the coast of Scotland, or you could be on the lush green grass of an island in the Caribbean.  The inland holes are a wonderful challenge themselves but the most memorable holes are closest to the Gulf of St. Lawrence.  The 8th is a heroic par-3 reminiscent of the 17th hole on Pete Dye’s Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, site of train wreck after train wreck in the 1991 Ryder Cup.  The 15th has a classic links look to it, a memorable par 4 heading straight for the sea.  16 continues along the beach and provides the signature view at Crowbush, looking back from the green towards the dunes.  The short, uphill par-3 17th is controversial to say the least, just a pitching wedge over no-man’s land to an elevated green guarded by deep pot bunkers.  Your round at The Links at Crowbush Cove will be the centerpiece of your visit to Prince Edward Island!
