Golfing your way through PEI

Whether you're a beginner golfer, a “regular”, or dreaming of turning professional - you'll find just the right golf course for your skill level. And the fees are lower than you might expect! 

From the air, Prince Edward Island might appear to be one giant golf course; rolling greens, sand and water traps alternating with woodlots. From there it just gets better. While PEI is Canada’s smallest province in both size and population, it squeezes in a staggering 27 stunning golf facilities across the island. Speaking of staggering, many of the courses are within such close proximately to beaches, restaurants and theatres that you can also hop over to other attractions to complement and round out your day. 

Mill River Golf Course is located in O’Leary – approximately a 20-25 minute drive from The Cottage. The course was opened in 1971 and was rated in the Top 100 Public Courses in Canada by The Globe and Mail.
