Very disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, the golf course has a great layout and interesting holes, hower the course is in terrible condition. Fairways are in bad shape and the greens are even worse. Patches on the green where there is no grass, just brown...More

Golfed here October 2017. Course is very challenging with rolling fairways and sand traps. A drive cart is a must unless you have superman's legs. The vistas are beautiful. Fall foliage was at its best when we were there early October. Some greens are out...More

I've played this course that last six years in a row and it is truly my favorite golf course in Nova Scotia (and yes I've played both Cabot courses and they are great too). However nothing compares to the feel you get when you play...More

This was a very cool place to play golf. Yes the conditions aren't the best but the layout was fun and scenic, and it wasn't very expensive to play. We played it because it was a Stanley Thompson built by hand some seventy years ago....More

I loved . It is a beautiful course and offers lots of challenge . Maybe it's mostly the setting that I liked the most.

The course needs a course turf management specialist. The grass on the fairways was too long. The tee boxes to dry. The sand traps were reasonable but had little sand. I enjoyed the numerous elevated tee boxes and the narrow fairways but found some of...More

We planned this trip several months ago, primarily based on Score Magazine rating. A big disappointment. The t-boxes, fairways, bunkers and greens are all in desperate need of attention. Ladies wear your sports bras when driving over these VERY bumpy fairways. But the worst problem...More
