Owner description: Recognized by Golf Digest as Canada's Best New Course in 1994. Overlooking the north shore dunes of PEI, Crowbush continues to enthrall all those that take the challenge to conquer one of North America's very best. How can it get better than a Golf Digest five star rating? Undulating fairways, water holes with a wisp of wind, pot bunkers and challenging greens all come together to provide you with an experience not to be forgotten. Truly an unbelievable combination of nature and imagination. Of all the courses that are considered a "must play", Crowbush is certainly one of them. If you can tame the 6,903 yards at the Links, you should be able to play well anywhere. Rated four and a half stars by Golf Digest Places to Play, which raves, "Outstanding, plan your next vacation around it". SCORE Golf Magazine rated Crowbush in the Top 2 Best Value Golf Courses in Canada. The Links at Crowbush Cove is situated around the dunes on the north shore of PEI and is located at the Rodd Crowbush Golf & Beach Resort on Route 350, off Route #2 near Morell. It is approximately a 30 minute drive to Charlottetown.

“Fantastic course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

I played the links in late August and it was an incredible course. It was in great shape and very difficult. Great views all around the course and the club house was really good.

The golf cart that was supplied was incredible. It had a small GPS that tracked your movement, showed the distance of certain shots off the tee, your distance from different spots on the course and also tracked your score.

I would definitely recommend playing the Links at Crowbush Cove if you like golf and are visiting PEI.

“Crowbush”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This is one wonderful golf course. Beautiful - and yet a severe test of golf.

A good deal of the course has a very linksy feel. There are a few holes that are literally right next to north shore of PEI. You can hit your ball on to the beach if you push it right. And, yet, there are inland parts of the course that are narrow and surrounded by dense thickets of ball-eating pine trees.

We got "lucky" enough to show up to play Crowbush on a day with wind gusts of over 30 miles an hour. It made the linksy part of Crowbush quite a test that day, but great fun and great scenery.

You will love the holes that lie adjacent to the Gulf of St Lawrence, and the 6 flights of stairs to the back tees at 11 are worth the trip to get a view of the whole area including the course and the Gulf.

“The Links at Crowbush Cove”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

A links style golf course designed by Tom Mcbroom. The course offers stunning ocean views. Course conditioning is immaculate. Greens are undulating and challenging. Each hole offers many sets of tees for every level of golfer. It is truly a must play.

“World class golf!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

This course was stunningly beautiful and very challenging! We played in mid July and we were told it was one of the windiest days of the season, makes for a strategic round of golf. Generally I hate playing in strong winds - the game is hard enough as is. But at crowbush I found myself marvelling at the sights and how hard the next shot was going to be.

The staff were all very friendly and accomodating.

I've played many of the mountain range courses in BC and AB and I would put Crowbush just ahead of Silvertip and Banff Springs as my favorite course.
