The Scottish tradition has found a world-class home at The Links At Crowbush Cove. Golf architect Thomas McBroom has artfully woven a spectacular course design around the seaside dunes of Prince Edward Island's north shore, incorporating panoramic views and plenty of challenge. The highly acclaimed course incorporates nine water holes, eight dunes holes and greens built to U.S.G.A. specs - just some of the reasons The Links at Crowbush Cove has earned a five-star rating from Golf Digest and has been chosen to host major tournaments such as the Export-A Skins Game.

I actually played here back in 2012 as part of a PEI/Cape Breton Vacation.<br/> Of the courses I played on PEI, this was the best one. There is diversity as you play through trees, along the coast and in a marshy area. You will find yourself looking at the dunes to the east and wondering what could have been; that area is protected from golf/real estate.<br/> Regardless, the links is misleading, but the course is a lot of fun and does have some quality holes. The course is in great condition. Most people will love the holes near the water, but strategy comes into play on all of them. You might find the short semi-blind uphill par 3 17th to be quirky or fun. The par 3 8th is probably everyone's favorite. The par 5 eleventh needs an epic drive to get over the marsh that acts as Cardinal bunker in 2. This will get mixed reviews. Over all, the golf is very good for players of all handicaps. <br/> As for the resort, that would earn 5 stars. Stay on the property. The restaurant has great food (get the PEI mussels), and the accommodations are top notch. Off the course, the beach area is lovely with the towering dunes looking like they were imported from Ireland, and the water is warm up here. The golf has everything you need for warm up.<br/> As an overall experience, I think you need to stay and play here if on PEI. The golf is really good and that makes it worth the stay.

There's a lot of good to great golf on PEI, but Crowbush, simply put, is the main draw. With ocean views as stunning as it gets, a great variety of holes and outstanding conditions, Crowbush is a very memorable experience. My only criticism is there are a couple of holes that are almost impossible for the less skilled golfer. But then again, I don't believe all courses have to all things to everyone. There are many courses in the top 100 that aren't very playable for high handicappers.

I was a bit underwhelmed by this course. It only really has 5 or 6 holes along the water, the rest have more of a parkland feel. They are very nice parkland holes though! Some spectacular views along the way. After playing a third round I started to like this course. It's challenging, but fair. Fairways are fairly generous, very important to be on the right section of the green with your approach so pick up the pin placement sheet when you check in. They had a very tough winter so right now there is some winter kill showing. Good not great

Easily the best course on PEI, greens were a bit rough a number of years ago, most are now the best I've ever played. ive played at least 50 different courses in Canada.<br/> Fairways are perfect and the views of the Ocean and beaches are amazing!<br/> This course is very difficult, I am a 10 hdcp and set goals to break 90 here.

It was a hit or miss with the weather on this day for us, really windy some holes, little rain for some others, followed by some holes of perfect weather..

Regardless the conditions of the course were amazing. I really enjoyed all of the views too! simply spectacular. As mentioned in a previous review this course is extremely difficult. Don't try to be a hero and play from the big boys tees. Play within yourself.

Some of the holes are very long and difficult and yes, easily the fastest and wildest greens I have ever played also. My golf game has drastically improved since I played there, so I would like to see where I would stand after my 92 in '2012.

But if you love golf with beautiful conditions and a BIG BIG challenge.. this is the place you need to go!

It must have been a very bad experience for anybody to give The Links at Crowbush Cove a two-star rating. No matter how rough of shape or how bad the service, this course will always be one of Canada's best and certainly the premier golf experience on PEI.<br/> Yes, I can see calling it "overrated" compared to price - it is expensive - but that's the going rate of ocean golf these days. I haven't played on PEI since 2006, and I can still vividly recall some of the views from the course. That's the sign of a memorable moment. I've played hundreds of courses since then, but those images are burned in my brain.<br/> The greens were a bit too wild for my tastes, and a couple of holes felt too difficult. Minor annoyances they are on an otherwise fine round of golf.
