With some of the most spectacular views over the north shore dunes, The Links at Crowbush Cove is one of PEIs must-play golf courses. The landscape provided a unique challenge to legendary Canadian course designer Tom McBroom due to its placement along the coastline. And it’s often considered one of the most challenging golf courses on the whole island. The 18-hole, par 72 course is 6903 yards in length and ranked 14th on Golf Digest’s Best Courses in Canada in 2022, along with many other acknowledgments since its opening in 1993.
As the name implies, The Links at Crowbush Cove is a links-style course that blends perfectly in with the natural surroundings of what used to be a campground. The course even received an environmental achievement award from the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association in 2004 for its preservation of the natural environment around the course. As golfers play through the 18 holes, they will notice three main types of landscapes: dunes, wetlands and spruce groves. And that provides the unique opportunity to enjoy both the links-style gameplay that dunes offer and the natural water hazards generated from the wetlands.
The Links at Crowbush Cove offers golfers of all levels amazing views of the PEI coastline, with four sets of tees per hole. But get ready for some gusty gameplay, with the winds off the Atlantic providing an extra challenge.
