109. Green Gables

Green Gables Golf Club

  • New Glasgow, Prince Edward Island (39KM north from Charlottetown)
  • 2nd in the province
  • Stanley Thompson, Robbie Robinson, Thomas McBroom
  • 1937
  • 98.3768 points

Set near the Gulf of St. Lawrence on the Lake of Shining Waters and in the Greenwich Prince Edward Island National Park, Green Gables is just one of a couple opportunities Thompson got to work near (or on) the ocean, but unfortunately the oceanfront holes have since been lost.

What remains is an interesting mix of Thompson, Robinson, and McBroom’s heavy-hand, but nonetheless, chock full of quality. The routing itself is quite interesting: the front nine wraps around itself on some mildly undulating terrain, while the back wanders out to the Lake of Shining Waters before climaxing on the epic par 3, 16th with Thompson’s own version of C.B. Macdonald’s fingerprint template.

To round out the strengths at Green Gables, it is one of the few golf courses to end on back-to-back gambling par 5’s.
