Golf Along the Gulf

Hidden away on this quiet part of the island are the Links at Crowbush Cove (tel. 800/235-8909 or 902/368-5761), considered by many to be PEI's best golf course for both its lovely aesthetics and its sturdy challenge. (The course has previously captured five stars from no less an authority than Golf Digest.) The 6,900-yard, par-72 course was built in 1994 along the Gulf of St. Lawrence; so, yes, it's truly links-style golf in the best Scottish tradition. There are 9 water holes here, plus 8 that run alongside dunes -- and a goodly helping of those dreaded "pot bunkers." The 11th tee tends to become a bottleneck, as golfers are momentarily distracted by sweeping views up and down the island's coast. Reserved tee times are available for C$79 to C$99 per round; rates include unlimited golf, pull carts, tees, and buckets of practice-range balls. Kids play free after 3pm every day. The course is located just west of the village of Morell; going toward or coming from Morell, take Route 2 to the Route 350 turnoff; turn; and continue driving 3 to 5km (2 or 3 miles) on it until you reach the course.
