Golf Vacation – Prince Edward Island
Before we commence this article, it has to be said, it doesn’t get much better than this all said and done. Picture the scene and imagine an island golf destination that has been voted number one in its nation – not once, but twice in a row. Try not to feel sorry for those on the voting panel that had to visit!! Oh, how they suffered…..not!!
Imagine more than 26 golf courses on that island. Imagine vistas of white, champagne, pink and red beaches; or ocean waters extending far, far beyond the horizon. Imagine a day of golf that leads gracefully into a night of fine seafood dining at a five-star golf resort.
The island isn’t Hilton Head, its Prince Edward Island…and the country is, of course, Canada. Such a beautiful country.
A Prince Edward Island golf vacation offers ocean panoramas and courses created by renowned designers including Robinson, Hurdzan and Fry, Tom McBoom and others.
Crowbush Cove, boasting 18 holes over 6,901 yards, features nine water holes and eight holes near the famous dunes on the Gulf of St. Lawrence. World famous, it has been awarded a 5-star rating from Golf Digest and is listed among the “Sweet Sixteen” top courses worldwide.
From sunrise to sunset your choice of fairways for your Prince Edward Island golf vacation comes with any number of backdrops including coastal dunes, breathtaking ocean views, and lush forests and rolling farmland. Sounds awful doesn’t it!! Joking apart it sounds and is idyllic. Wildlife abounds and you may well catch a peek at the endangered Piping Plover.
A vacation in the smallest of Canada’s provinces need not be limited to golf, but of course if it was it would still be a memorable vacation. Prince Edward Island bustles with as much or as little activity as desired. From simple walks along miles and miles of beaches, to hikes along nature trails; from cycling tours to paddling or deep sea fishing, there is something for every outdoor enthusiast. Mind you it would be rude not to partake of a round or two….or several as well wouldn’t it.
Shopping, the arts, crafts, music festivals, top restaurants serving the finest of seafood dining are also requisites for any Prince Edward Island vacation be it golf or otherwise.
And as varied as your choice of golf courses for the duration of your vacation are the accommodation options offered by the island. From campgrounds to bed and breakfast through hotels and the finest of five star resorts, your vacation is truly your own creation. As some would say, the world is your oyster. If you chose say, bed and breakfast, you may well feel compelled to visit again to try a different type of accommodation.
