This was built as a high-quality course. Unfortunately the clubhouse burned down and was replaced by a trailer. So go for the gold but relocate for any 19th hole activities. Staff was friendly. On a weekday in early September the course was not busy which...More

I played Bell Bay as part of a package from the Inverary Inn. My only disappointment was the additional $20 charge for a power cart. As a visitor, I am never sure how walkable a golf course might be. By mid-July, the course had dried...More

The course was easy to follow with wide farways and greens quite challenging. We organized a package through Novas Scotia tourism website including an overnight stay at Inverary Resort. Unfortunately clubhouse burned down last year and new clubhouse underway, but not too impressive when you...More
