A golf vacation at Prince Edward Island couldn’t get any better than visiting The Links at Crowbush Cove. The pot bunkers, water holes, undulating fairways, and challenging greens provide the guests with a great golf experience. Designer Thomas McBroom stretched his creativity to make the course unique while preserving its natural surroundings. This astonishing course is a combination of nature and imagination.
Debuted in 1993, The Links at Crowbush Cove is the toughest among the other Prince Edward Island golf courses. It plays over 6,900 yards and comes with lots of long water carries. The 11th hole demands a long shot over a pond between the fairway and green. The 15th hole has a traditional links look that heads straight for the sea. Providing the signature view at Crowbush, the 16th hole continues along the beach and looks back from the green towards the dunes. The most controversial 17th hole is just a pitching wedge over no-man’s land to an elevated green that is guarded by deep pot bunkers. Furthermore, the course’s location makes it subject to most of the island’s higher wind. So scoring in this place on a windy day is even more challenging. Taking a golf trip to this course is a good way of improving any golfer’s skills.
The Links at Crowbush Cove integrates eight dunes holes, nine water holes, and greens built to USGA specs. This is just some of the factors why this course has earned a five-star rating from Golf Digest. Aside from that, because of its tough holes and beautiful surrounding, it was also recognized as Canada’s Best New Course in 1994 by Golf Digest. A golf triphere will be the centerpiece of every guest’s visit to Prince Edward Island.
