Crafted by Nature and Carved by The Sea

Northumberland Links is a golfing experience that will stand out in the minds of all who play it. 6,515 yards of raw beauty and picturesque holes – prevailing winds, rolling fairways, well placed bunkers and demanding greens. It’s Nova Scotia Links Golf at its finest.

Overlooking the beautiful Northumberland Strait, Northumberland Links is one of Atlantic Canada’s most picturesque and challenging golf courses. The ocean scenery combines with the beautiful landscaping of the grounds to create an atmosphere perfect for a round of golf. The bentgrass greens are designed to challenge even the most serious players.

Northumberland Links is easy to reach from any direction: just 90 minutes from the Halifax Airport, 80 minutes from the Moncton Airport, 80 minutes from Prince Edward Island and 205 minutes from Cabot Links.

Environmental Stewardship

At Northumberland Links, we utilize organic fertility programs that help increase the amount of carbon that gets sequestered from the atmosphere and deposited back into the soil. It is part of our ongoing effort to include environmentally responsible practices in our day-to-day course management.


“Great golf by the sea”

We played this course after flying in from Halifax for a golf trip in Cape Breton. It was worth the stopover.

“Great course”

This is my favourite course in all of Canada. Great scenery, very fast and challenging greens and some of the friendliest staff anywhere. Watch out when the wind comes up!

Sean, South Africa

“Hidden gem”

We played the front nine where the view on each and every hole surely rival Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill, Ballybunion or Old St. Andrews. Lush, full turf and groomed, flatness enhanced by greens that were true and perfect pace.
