Despite its continued downward spiral over the past three seasons, ever hopeful, I decided to give Avondale one more chance. Last year was a bad year for the course and the neglect was glaringly obvious this Spring. It's greens were in rough shape, as were the fairways, tee boxes and sand traps. It's not as if the new course manager... More

Tourists or locals really like this Golf Course. Your ball striking has to be reasonably good as you must stay in the individual fairways as there is no bailout areas. Its very fair though to the Golfer. Some of the super long hitters sometimes complain that they have run out of fairway especially on slight doglegs. However, they make shorter... More

When first I reviewed Avondale I sang its praises. I thought it was one of the best maintained and most challenging golf courses in the province. Alas, not this year. All the challenging rough has been mowed down, the fairways have bare spots, there's grass growing in some of the once pristine bunkers, there are bare spots and turf breakdown... More

A nice layout however the course was in pretty rough condition. Many of the greens were dried out in spots as were the tee boxes. We drove from Cavendish and would say it wasn' worth the drive. Better courses at Green Gables,North Rustico and Glasgow Hills.

Great price and friendly staff. The course is a challenge for all types of players wanting to get better. It offers four tee options depending on your skill level. One caution...bring bug spray and enjoy!

There are a dozen first-rate courses on PEI and, although it flies under the radar because of its location off the beaten track, this is one of them. The greens are great, it's walkable, and it's affordable. Every hole is distinct and challenging. You'll walk off the 18th green and say that you'd like to play it again. (Tip: Buy... More

I have golfed Avondale 6 or 7 times now, we go down to PEI each year for a summer golf trip & it is always my favourite round of the trip. The course is never in anything less then excellent condition and the price should be twice as expensive for how great a course it is (i think the location... More

Year after year, Avondale presents course conditioning that is second to none. The greens are among the truest I've ever experienced. Some go to the island for sea-side views, but if you want to go for a real golf challenge I highly recommend a visit to Avondale. Although the course is very playable for beginners, teeing off from the tips... More

Avondale is a very challenging test for golfers of all levels. The white sand is consistent for those unfortunate to find it lol but is always consistently fluffy. The greens are always well manicured and are very fast. Not sure what their stimp rating is but they are some of the fastest on the island. The fairways are usually in... More
