Attraction details
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.

“Ridiculous 'Mummy' golf carts”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

The Golf club provided golf carts that we found out after the fact were controlled by the location of the cart. We found ourselves in a cart that would not allow us to go forward but insisted that we reverse back to where we had started with no warning that we were in a location thaat it didn't want us to visit!l. We were also reduced to 2 miles per hour a numer of times, again without any warning that we were doing anything wrong. In all cases we were just driving to a ball, usually somewhat errant but well within reach and outside the area around the greens. It wa a ridiculous experience so be aware of the 'mummy' carts if you go to this golf course. I suggest instead that you go to one of the other golf courses on the island like Galsgow Hills which has normal golf carts.

“Great course to play but brings extra balls!”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

Really nice course condition. Amazing service from the back shop as well as the starter staff. Wonderful scenery even when I didn't have my best game. The tee blocks play reasonably true and suits my abilities. Highly recommend this course.

“Great Views and amazing course condition!”
Reviewed June 28, 2011

I have been to Crowbush a number of times but this was my first time in a few years. The course was in immaculate condition. My game was not in quite as good a shape but had fun and we had a beautiful day!

“Great Course”
Reviewed June 20, 2011

This is a must play if you are ever visiting PEI. The staff very very helpful and accomodating. The day we played the weather was great but it was still worth playing this course. The views are incredible and the course plays well if you chose the right tee blocks.

“One of the best courses on PEI”
Reviewed October 6, 2010

My husand and traveled through the Maritimes, with our golf clubs, for the first time and played this fantastic course on 9-24-10. Very reasonable price for this caliber course. We also stayed at the resort for two nights (will follow-up with a separate review for the resort -- also top notch). We are from Arizona where there are many excellent courses, and have played golf at many great resorts throughout America. I "ditto" all the other excellent reviews this course has received from other Trip Advisor members. Scenic, wonderful staff, beyond our expectations.
