New Brunswick

Map of New Brunswick

New Brunswick lies on Canada’s eastern seaboard though its coastline is sheltered from the Atlantic Ocean by the Gulf of St Lawrence and Northumberland Strait. Comprising less than 1% of the nation’s landmass, the province is home to around a million people of mainly French, English, Irish or Scottish descent.

New Brunswick Golf Association was formed in 1934, twenty-one years ahead of the New Brunswick Ladies Golf Association. Both governing bodies amalgamated in 2006 to form one provincial authority for male and female members of the forty-seven golf clubs in New Brunswick.

The 18 holes at the Algonquin Resort in St Andrews are acknowledged as the best golf course in the province. Golf has been played on this site since 1894 but it only really came of age when changes suggested by Donald Ross were implemented in the 1920s. Thomas McBroom redesigned the layout at the end of the 1990s before Rod Whitman was called to revamp the course in 2016, opening up views of the Atlantic on the back nine.
