“An old favourite on PEI”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

I first played Brudenell over 30 years ago when it was the only course at the Brudenell resort and long before it became overshadowed by its next door neighbor Dundarave and down the road cousin Crowbush Cove. It was the first resort course in Eastern PEI and for many years the best, but enough about the past - what's it like to play today?

As a course Brudenell has changed little in the last three decades. It was then and is now a very good golf course with some absolutely terrific holes and a few not so great. Not surprisingly the really memorable holes all feature water, either as a hazard, as a scenic distraction or as in the case of # 11 Eagle's Aeyrie, both. Unusually it has six each of par 3, 4 and 5 holes which I personally like because you can make up some scoring on the par 5's what you lose on the difficult par 4's.

The course was in great shape the two times we played and pace of play was good - under 4 and a half hours. The facilities at Brudenell have improved greatly over the past few years with a pro shop that is one of the best in Atlantic Canada in terms of selection, good practice areas and electric carts. This is a course you can walk, unlike Dundarave. As noted by a few others it is a bit pricey, but only by Maritime golf standards. In most places at the height of the season this would be a very reasonable course.

“Very nice course, but pricey”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Not quite as nice as the neighbouring Dundarave, but still a very pretty and challenging course. Its also quite walkable (while Dundarave really is not). Not a bad idea to avoid the cost of the cart, since there is not GPS. My only issue with this course - there's too many blind shots and dog-legs. But its always well-maintained, and its a fun challenge with some very pretty holes.

“The Starter and Marshall Are AWESOME”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

We were golfing behind 8 very hungover/ drunk golfers who were a mess. They were golfing so slow that there were three holes open after their first hole. The starter and marshall moved us in front, treated us incredibly and kept the guys moving. The staff at the golf course are professional and go above and beyond to make the golf round a great experience. We'll be back soon!

“The Best”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

This course is still my favorite track in Atlantic Canada. It's a long course with six par threes, six par fours and six par fives. It has some very challenging holes with well protected greens. Some very long par fours and some short par fives that offer risk and reward shots.
The staff is welcoming and the entire process is very professional, from arrival to your last putt.
This course is worth the trip to the East side of the Island.

I have been a member of this course for 5 years. Greens are awesome and the course is in great shape! For anyone who likes to walk, this course is very easy to walk. The staff are very accommodating, very much worth the experience.
