Newfoundland and Labrador

Map of Newfoundland and Labrador


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.
