    I loved . It is a beautiful course and offers lots of challenge . Maybe it's mostly the setting that I liked the most.  more »

    The course needs a course turf management specialist. The grass on the fairways was too long. The tee boxes to dry. The sand traps were reasonable but had little sand. I enjoyed the numerous elevated ...  more »

    The course is a national treasure, the routing is genius and the improvements being made to bring the course back to its original design are fantastic. Those that complain about not having little modern conveniences or the course not being in perfect condition are missing the point. The course takes you on a tour of Cape Breton itself, starting along the ocean, working it's way up through the mountains, across a gorgeous river valley, and finally back out to sea. Stanley Thompson showed great restraint by not over bunkering the course. Many of its best holes don't have a single bunker, instead the terrain itself provides all the challenge you need. I dream about the day I'll be able to return.

    because of tough weather with super strong wind, not really enjoy the game. but the staff is really nice. some of the course views are unique

    We were pretty disappointed with this course. For the price I would expect GPS on the carts, little things like tees or water in the cart, and a yardage book. None of that is provided. I have played at least 6 courses in PEI that are the same price or less and they all have at least some of those things. Fairways were in terrible shape as were the tee blocks. Some of the pathways were under repair and you had to drive through a construction zone to get to the one hole but they didn't drop the rate. The edges of the bunkers were brutal. Sand just laying any which way with no sharp edges. That said, the greens were fantastic, there are some stunning views and very unique hole layouts. Course has a lot of potential but poorly managed in my opinion. I won't be back. Will spend my money on PEI courses.
