Located in New Glasgow, about 20 minutes from Charlottetown, sits Glasgow Hills Golf Course. It opened in 2001 and has since received recognition from Golf Digest, The Globe and Mail and SCOREGolf. Golf architect Les Furber designed Glasgow Hills around the diverse terrain of the landscape to create a challenging course with undulating fairways, fast greens and bunkers that test your skills. With ridges and sand traps bordering many of the greens, precision and patience are key on this course. Although there aren’t a ton of water hazards to worry about at Glasgow Hills, you will find an island green on the 9th hole and a shot over the water on hole 15.
The 18-hole course is par 72 and measures slightly under 7000 yards from the back tees. And the many elevated tee boxes provide amazing panoramic vistas over the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the River Clyde. Glasgow Hills is also home to an onsite restaurant, Pipers, that serves traditional east coast classics with a twist. Pipers isn’t your run-of-the-mill clubhouse restaurant, and many people come to enjoy the cuisine even when they aren’t golfing as part of the PEI Culinary Trail.
