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.
Designed by Les Furber, Glasgow Hills Resort and Golf Club is one of Prince Edward Island's most challenging plays. The design's difficulty comes in a layout that is seldom flat, rather rolling up and down along some of the island's highest ground.
One of Canada's top-rated golf courses, the Links at Crowbush Cove is located on Prince Edward Island's exposed north coast. The course opened in 1994 and was designed by Canadian architect Thomas McBroom. It is one of four that are owned and operated by the province, and the argument could be made that Crowbush is the most demanding of all of Prince Edward Island golf courses.
Photo gallery: Andersons Creek Golf Club sits on one of PEI's more interesting pieces of land for golf
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.
Opening to rave reviews in 1994, The Links at Crowbush Cove on Prince Edward Island, Canada is a tough test in a beautiful setting.
