Strategy – Hole #14, Grim Reaper

By cultural definition ..A figure commonly used to represent death. The Grim Reaper is a skeleton or solemn-looking man carrying a scythe, who cuts off people’s lives as though he were harvesting grain. So there you have it……this hole can slice and dice a good round like the aforementioned Reaper’s scythe. Why so scary? The […]

Strategy – Hole #10, Bold Reward

There are two strategies that, executed properly, can lead to a stress-free par or maybe a birdie. The first, take a driver over the trees on this dogleg left with about a 240-yard carry if on correct line. This has the reward of a chip shot onto a sloped back to the front green. Sounds […]

“Beauty Course”

This course was amazing. Having played Cabot Link the day before it wasn’t a let down at all. The greens are in amazing shape, with subtle slopes but a high stimp rating. The holes along the water are jaw dropping. ~ Kim, Qispamsis, NB

“Worth the trip”

Had been told by several golfers we met in New Brunswick that this was a great course to play. We made a detour on our way from Moncton to PEI this year just to see for ourselves. Great golf course especially the very scenic holes overlooking the Northumberland Strait! Phillip, Florida

“Great golf, friendly people”

We were travelling from Cape Breton to Fredricton and decided to stop for a round at Northumberland. It was a great decision. The course is a hidden gem. Our only regret was that we couldn’t stay for another day. Sarah, Florida

“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. Mike, North Carolina

“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

Strategy – Hole #9, Blind

Tee shot up and over a slight hill to a blind landing area. From the white tees nothing more than a 180-200 yard tee ball will put you in good shape. With normal Summer conditions, that should get you well inside the 150 yard marker. Why not hit it further? Sure….you got this. Ripping one […]

Strategy – Northumberland Greens

So a lot of us just watched the US Open from Winged Foot Golf Club in New York. There was a lot of chatter about their famous greens. Often referred to as “green’s complex “. What does that even mean?? As a noun, “a group of similar buildings or facilities on the same site.” As […]
