Twin Rivers sits in a wild and woolly setting with two white-water salmon rivers defining a dramatic layout that skirts the Atlantic before winding through a coniferous forest teeming with moose and bald eagles.
In November 2018 the Terra Nova Golf Resort went into receivership, but in April 2019 a new operator stepped in, so the resort's future looks promising.
Twin Rivers presents golfers with one idyllic vista after another. The 1st tee stares out onto the Atlantic just beyond the green and the placid waters of the sound haunt the par five 2nd hole as well, salt water is never far from your right along the fairway. The two rivers dominate after that, the waters bubbling over rocks that invariably stand between you and the green. It makes for some magnificent par threes in particular, with the 8th hole requiring unerring accuracy to clear the river without finding the bunkers to one side of, or the rocks behind, the green. The 18th presents another gorgeous but intimidating shot, a 175-yard par three played through the mist rising above a waterfall and cascading down onto jagged rapids before opening onto a small bowl of green, fringed with bunkers and oblivion beyond. The menacing waters aren't the only danger either, as there's a wealth of wicked-looking sand traps, including a trio of high-walled dungeons on the 16th the locals have dubbed Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
The Twin Rivers Golf Course has been given the rank of Platinum by the Canadian Golf Course Ranking Magazine for the past three years, ranking the course as one of the top 30 courses in Canada and one of the top six in Atlantic Canada. This seaside course that plays along the Atlantic coast and criss-crosses two salmon rivers, has been often referred to as "Canada's Pebble Beach."
