Check In: PEI's Rodd Crowbush is a Haven for Golf and Beach Lovers
Prince Edward Island may be best known for its tasty taters and lore of Anne of Green Gables but in golf circles, Canada's smallest province packs one of the game's biggest swings.
Located along the north shore, the Links at Crowbush Cove is one of the island's top-rated golf courses and the one that put PEI on the world golf map. With its panoramic seaside setting, Crowbush Cove offers a British-links experience featuring oceanside play overlooking stretches of white-sand beaches and wind-swept dunes.
Navigate your way through the course’s undulating fairways and challenging greens with water and dune holes as waves lap gently against the shores of the Atlantic.
Surrounding this tranquil course is the 5-star Rodd Crowbush Golf & Beach Resort — one of Atlantic Canada’s most luxurious resorts and just 25 minutes from Charlottetown.
Painted in a beach and ocean palette, the hotel's deluxe guestrooms and king suites offer comfy Maritime accommodations, with some offering picturesque views of The Links at Crowbush Cove and the sandy coastline.
The colourful lodging continues in its separate and well-appointed cottages, ideal for gathering family or groups of friends in your bubble. One-bedroom cottages feature a king bed, Jacuzzi tub, a pull-out sofa, kitchenette and a private deck with a barbecue. Two-bedroom cottages are best for larger families, outfitted with one king, two queens, a pull-out sofa, fireplace, full kitchen and a private deck.
Golf isn't the only draw at Crowbush — there is prime beach access next to the resort and plenty of watersports during the summer season. A short walk away and you'll find Lakeside Beach, a spectacularly long stretch of white sand with a steady breeze and a simple experience away from it all (no washrooms or lifeguards on duty).
After a long walk on the beach, indulge in a relaxing treatment at the resort's spa, which showcases the Aveda product line and includes aromatic massages, body wraps and polishes, hand and foot care, make-up applications and more.
Other on-site amenities include an indoor pool, outdoor whirlpool, tennis courts and fitness centre. Nearby activities include deep-sea fishing, horseback riding, kayaking, cycling and much more. Go with your family on a clam dig or a beach lobster broil. While you’re there, rent a car to roam other parts of the island and other golf courses.
