Situated in the Gulf of St Lawrence, the maritime province of Prince Edward Island is the smallest in the country in physical size and by population, with approximately 140,000 people occupying a territory of just under 2,200 square miles. PEI hosted the Charlottesown Conference – the first meeting that led to the creation of the Canadian nation – in 1864, becoming the seventh province to join the Confederation nine years later.
The Prince Edward Island Golf Association was formed in 1971 and it’s the governing body for 28 clubs, ranging from Mill River in the west to Rollo Bay Greens in the east of the island. The PEIGA organises dozens of competitions around many of its member clubs during the golfing season.
Prolific Canadian architect Tom McBroom designed the Links at Crowbush Cove course in 1993 and it regularly features near the top of the national golf course listings. Dundarave was unveiled a little later – in 1999 to be precise – and this Michael Hurdzan/Dana Fry creation also makes a regular appearance in the Canadian Top 100 rankings.
