Prince Edward Island is known far and wide as being a world-class golf destination. With 405 fairways that range from descending hills with picturesque coastal views to forested corridors hugged by sparkling lakes, it is easy to understand what attracts the pros and amateur golfers alike. We’ve rounded up the top reasons that make PEI a golfer’s paradise.
1. Why play a course when you can play an entire Island?
There are 28 golf courses on Prince Edward Island, giving us the most courses per capita in Canada! So many courses, so little time!
2. Spend time driving your ball, not your car.
There are 20+ courses within 45 minutes of each other which means more golf, more beach, more seafood and more vacation.
3. Walk right on!
You won’t come across any Members Only courses on PEI. Each island course is accessible for all golfers to enjoy.
4. Immaculate design, pristine conditions.
World class architects such as Stanley Thompson, Thomas McBroom, Les Furber, Michael Hurdzan, Dana Fry and Graham Cook are responsible for designing many of the Island’s world-renowned courses. Each has its own unique design and flair.

7. Fun for the whole family.
Any non-golfers in your group? Each course is surrounded by plenty of activities for those who don’t swing the sticks. Relax at Lakeside beach near the Links at Crowbush Cove, check out the home of Anne Shirley which neighbours on Green Gables Golf Course, or explore the provincial park around the Brudenell River and Dundarave golf courses.

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or you’ve never swung a club, there’s a course for every golfer. Both newcomers and experienced players will feel comfortable playing on Prince Edward Island courses. If you’re just beginning, tune up your game at the Fox Golf Academy before your round to impress your golf partners!

Relax after your round with a cold beverage and fresh Island seafood. Some courses even offer free mussels for golfers post-game!
