Green Gables Golf Course
A scenic, ocean-side golf course, Green Gables measures 6,459 yards from the back tees and has everything you would expect of one of the Island’s top-rated links - classic rolling greens guarded by deep bunkers, six water holes, an ever changing breeze and the dunes of PEI’s famous north shore serving as a backdrop.
The course was designed and built in 1939 by one of the world’s most renowned architects, the late Stanley Thompson. It underwent extensive modifications in the early 1980’s.
Green Gables is located in the PEI National Park and is equidistant (30 minutes) from the Province’s two main centers, Charlottetown and Summerside. There is a large selection of accommodations, restaurants and camping facilities in this resort area.

Go to PEI, you have to play Green Gables, right?
Most who visit PEI know that this is the home of the legendary Anne of Green Gables. In fact, the author of this famous book, L.H. Montgomery, is buried just minutes from the Golf Course that bears the name. So basically, this is a must-play, and while it isn't the best course on the island, it's close. It has the kind of quirks you'd expect from architect Stanley Thompson, most notably greens where you don't want to be on the wrong side of the ball. With lots of bunkers and great views, especially down the stretch, it's a legendary experience.
Worth a visit
The first thing that comes to mind when I think of this course is green, its very green.. I played it on the long weekend in September with my fiancé and we really enjoyed it.
The only reason I did no give it the 5 star ranking was because the greens were not what I expected them to be for the price we paid. The greens at my home course are of a very high standard, so that's what I base them on. I also thought that the greens had many subtle breaks which was not good for my golf game that day, but is not fault to the course.
I thought that the fairways were wide enough and welcoming to allow golfers of all levels to hit them. Most of the Holes were also wide enough too that you need to really spray your ball to lose them on drives.
There is quite a bit of sand on this course too, but its placed in places where if you can keep your shots half decently straight, and you stay out of them, your going to post a half decent score.
I cant remember the specific numbers, but a few holes on the back were really fun to play with great course designs and beautiful scenery.
Coming back to play it at least 2 more times summer '15
