Things To Do - Golf

Golf

The longest golf season in Atlantic Canada

Whether you're looking to perfect your game or simply learn how to swing, golfing in Southern Nova Scotia will fit you to a tee. Our mild winters mean that every year, our courses are the first to open and the last to close in Atlantic Canada. Treat yourself to a day spent on one of our top courses for under 40 dollars. Afterwards, join us for fine seafood and Acadian music to add the finishing touches to a great golfing experience.
