Northumberland Links

  • Pugwash, Nova Scotia (178KM north from Halifax)
  • 4th in the Province
  • Robbie Robinson & Bill Robinson
  • 1964 & 1988
  • 97.1364 points

Set on a gorgeous site on the Gulf of St. Lawrence and down the road from the popular Fox Harb’r Resort, Northumberland Links benefits from being able to see the Gulf (and PEI) from almost every hole.

While not a traditional Links, there are certainly elements Robbie & Bill tried to recapture, such as many low-lying greens, and of course the interaction with the coast. Although limited to “Lobster Pot,” the 204 yard par 3, 4th—an odd choice to come that early in the golf course—it sticks in the golfers mind throughout the round.

Our panelists identified the 441 yard par 4, 16th, which is flanked by a creek up the entire left hand side working its way back towards the Gulf and PEI, as one of the better holes on property.
