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.

“Response to “Ridiculous 'Mummy' golf carts””
Reviewed June 7, 2012

The carts are programmed to keep them out of environmentally sensitive areas and other "delicate" areas - this is a links course and highly dependent on preservation of such areas for protection of the course from winter storms and seas. The speed governors on the carts primarily function while going over bridges - people have carelessly driven off the sides of the bridges despite the curbing.

If everyone driving a cart used common sense these controls would not be necessary, but there's always a few who feel they have a free rein to do whatever they please since they've paid a greens fee and ruin it for the other 90+%. The few "cart abusers" are the same ones who don't rake traps even though they are 10' from a rake, don't replace divots and don't repair ball marks on the greens. If there were a way to toss these people off the golf course and refund their greens fee, I'd be in favor of it.

A solution for the complainer is to not take a cart - Crowbush is an excellent walking course; Ricksha pull carts are included in the greens fee.

Crowbush is an excellent and a beautiful course; the management and members like myself are very conscious about preserving this gem.

“At least 12 Outstanding Holes”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

I like to rate courses based on the number of quality holes. Any course with more than 10 Outstanding holes is considered 5* in my book. This course had great par 5's - especially the 5th and 11th. The 11th is one of the best par 5's I have played. Holes 16 and 17 were also very special with views over the North Shore. Serious Golfers should choose this course. Probably the best in PEI.
