In the heart of the "Beaches" tourism area, this mature, well-maintained PEI golf course has been in play since 1970. Designed by Robbie Robinson, it has a definite "links" feel that offers all golfers a true test of skill while still providing genuine enjoyment. « less

Yesterday was a great day for golfing at Stanhope. The rain of the previous three days made the greens a little slower but it did not affect the fairways. They were in great shape as I expected some pooling or a little marshy areas given the amount of rain. Happy that was not the case. This is a challenging course... More

Among the north shore courses, this one is something different. Whereas the other courses are geared toward earning green fee, tourist dollars, Stanhope caters to local members. It's a true Island course, a throwback to the sixties or seventies. The clubhouse and the service lack polish and refinement, and the course has a number of twisty, merciless holes requiring local...

I grew up learning the game of golf at Stanhope and every time I make it back to the island I have to make a trip out and play Stanhope. The course itself is fun, fair, and challenging. You will have some risk/reward shots and will most likely use every club in the bag. The views of Covehead are breathtaking... More

Visited last month and was a dissapointment. The course was in less than great shape because of the past winter but also because the financial backers are not putting money back into the course to bring it back to better condition. But by far what is lacking at this golf course is customer service. My friend and I visited on... More

We were delighted with the atmosphere of the clubhouse...helpful and thoughtful. This building overlooks the oceon and a provincial park and is incredibly scenic. Other golfers were most considerate about letting our twosome play through and the holes were challenging and in many cases, breathtakingly beautiful. I admit that the wind can be a factor especially when it is blowing... More

I like the Stanhope layout. It can be tricky on a normal day but when the winds pick up, look out for the small greens. It can be a bit of target golf on some holes but you can pull out the driver on many of the holes. Keep your ball dry and you'll do fine. The clubhouse could use... More

The marshall was absolutely correct in telling this party that it was not the the time or place for lessons.Imagine having to let more than one group through and you have not played 9 holes. I will put our Canadian hospitality against their Southern anytime. I have played golf in the south many times, especially Myrtle Beach, and they do... More

A must stop if you want to enjoy what PEI has to offer. This is my second time playing the course in the past year, and I can't believe the shape it is in this year. The price to play really doesn't compare with anything else on the island in terms of bang for your buck. The natural landscape is... More

A friendly golf course. It is not too difficult, but enjoyable to play.
