Newfoundland and Labrador is the most easterly province in Canada, incorporating Labrador on the mainland and the island of Newfoundland, along with several thousand other small islands. Just over half a million people inhabit this territory with many of them claiming English or Irish ancestry.
The Newfoundland and Labrador Golf Association was formed in 1985, twenty-one years after the Newfoundland Golf Association was established. Divided into four districts, there are currently twenty-two member clubs affiliated to the N&LGA, only two of which – Amaruk and Tamarack – are located in Labrador.
The Humber Valley (River) course is rightly regarded as the number one layout in the province. Designed by the prolific Doug Carrick, this course – and its 10th hole in particular – has received nothing but rave reviews since it debuted in 2006.
