    What a fun course!

    The first hole is a pretty easy opener and then leads to 3 holes right along the water before heading up into the woods. This course is fun, no holes are truly alike and there is plenty of water, challenge along with some of the fastest greens in the province. This course is great value for the money and is a trek, but with other courses around it is a great getaway spot along with wineries close and much more. 

    Having someone who has played the course before will certainly make a difference as there are plenty of dog legs and blind shots, but playing what you see is also never a bad option. 

    Definitely a course worth playing with great conditions and variety. 

    I have had the pleasure to play this course twice. Both times were as a birthday gift and part of a getaway package combined with Northumberland links stay and play packages. 

    Fox Harbour is known as an elite elite course in Nova Scotia. Gated and need your reference to get in, private airport and the whole 9. Thave accommodations are fantastic and the food is top notch with it. 

    The course itself plays pretty hard. There a variety of tees to choose from and really you are at the mercy of the weather. As it is right on the water it can get very windy and you look at 4 or 5 club differences. This is a cart only course and walking really isn't an option as the distance between holes can been pretty long. The carts have a GPS which is super useful and the conditions as expected are top notch as well. 

    This is a great course, great challenge at a price. Off season rates are reasonable and there are plenty of memorable holes and views to make it worth your while. 

    I should add it has been a few years since I have played here and all were prior to the most recent renovations so several holes are likely to have changed. 

    However this was a fun course. Expensive, but fun. It is a very private course and the price tag goes with it. The course is short and hilly and really driver isn't needed for most golfers. That being said it offers several challenges with varying lies, blind shots and elevation changes that make holes unique. The greens are fast! Par 3s are difficult and if you can get on as a guest it is well worth it. 

    Would I pay to play it... yeah I would to see the new changes, but it isn't one I would want to pay to play a lot.

    Let me start by saying the conditions are superb and the GPS as well as carts and practice areas are great. There is no questions about that. However it really isn't a links course in my books. This course is tough and can play very long. It is a cart only course and has some unique holes, but is expensive. I enjoyed playing here the few times I have and would happily go back, but it wouldn't be my first choice either. Greens are super, fairways and teeboxes are stellar as well. The course has matured well and they have made it better or simpler with thinning out the woods beside it as when it opened good shots were not always rewarded as funny bounces caused way too many lost balls. 

    Check out their site as they have some nice over views of the holes. Quite often driver is not the call and playing back is the smarter play. 

    A truly fantastic course with great value. If you don't like hills take a car as 9 and 18 are just straight up. This course has some of the funnest and fastest greens around and includes a good amount of slope. Typically dry and allows for lots of roll out there are plenty are scoring holes, but a premium is placed on being in the fairway as it is a treelined course. 

    There is a good practice facility and decent club house with pretty good food and great staff. 

    There is a ton which could be said about this course, but it is worth the play without question. The course has great par 4s and finishes off with an odd par 5,3,5,3,5 format or something like that. It is a little different, but it works. If like like elevation changes this is a great course for you and the back 9 plays harder than the front. 

    What a fun course this one is to play! With great stay and play rates which include unlimited holes this course has a great layout, fun holes and fast greens that will keep you wanting to play more and more. 

    Opening with a sort of handshake hole it quickly turns to a challenge with a downhill par 3 with danger all over. The par 3's may be the highlight here with unique shots and then really fun stretch of scoring holes included back to back par 5's then a challenging but getable par 4 and finishes of with a really difficult 18. 

    I have always enjoyed playing here and looked forward to it each and every time. Great value for the course and one of many in Nova Scotia which are underrated and worth playing. 

    Chester is a great course for a lot. Some of the golf can be slightly overlooked and weather plays a big part. Slow play is often an issue as well. 

    However views are amazing and 17 and 18 are amazing finishing holes. The course is in solid shape and greens are predictable. There is a good mix of holes and not too many surprises. Price is about normal and good value. There is a range, but no longer clubs and it is a decent walk as well. The restaurant is great and hard to find better spots for a evening beverage. 

    If you are in the area it is a must play. 

    My old home course. 

    I have a lot of fond memories here. The course is typically always in good shape. The holes have a ton of variety and allow for some challenging shorts where being on the proper side of the fairway is key. The course is not immensley long and has a really quirky par 3 12th hole that is arguably too short. However the course has great lake views, good staff and variety that makes you want to keep coming back to play more. Highly recommend for evening and twilight rates as can be played for a great deal. 

    Great variety in the holes with lots of elevation changes. Definitely a challenging course, however lots of scoring opportunities and good practice facilities. Overall a solid course which is always well kept and great fast greens. Again a really fun challenge that allows for decisions between safe and hero shots. 

    Great walking course that grows on you with the more times that it is played. Stellar practice facilities and open to all on their par 3 course. Price is good for Switzerland at 80-110 chf per round. Pro shop on site, top tracer range. North and East Range (east is grass). In addition the course is usually in good condition. It can get very wet and is narrow in places so tee shots are critical.
