Photo gallery: Green Gables Golf Club on Canada's PEI is a Stanley Thompson classic from the Golden Era
Located on Prince Edward Island's northern shore is Green Gables Golf Club, set within the Green Gables National Park near Cavendish. While this part of PEI may be known as the home of the "Anne of Green Gables" book series by Lucy Maud Montgomery, it's also home to one of the country's top classically designed courses by Stanley Thompson, Canada's most prolific architect of the Golden Era. The course originally opened in 1939, but has since been redesigned by Thomas McBroom in 2008.

Andersons Creek Golf Club in Cavendish has one of Prince Edward Island's more interesting pieces of land for golf, even if the first impression might not show it. The first few holes play on mostly open, flat land. Then, the third hole heads into a forested ridge line, where the bulk of the course's holes lay. Playing up and down through mature forest, the golf course winds along Andersons Creek, requiring shots played over water four times.

Prince Edward Island and Scotland are separated by about 2,500 miles, but the staff at Andersons Creek Golf Club is trying to serve up the best of both. Their slogan is, "A taste of Scotland, Prince Edward Island style." That means you'll often hear bagpipes in the background, and you'll find an assortment of Scotch at the bar, Wes Gilbertson writes.
