Donald Ross’ prolific New England career ended up bleeding over to the Maritimes a handful of times, and thankfully, Riverside, near St. John, New Brunswick, remains. American Ross expert Tyler Rae is partly to credit here, who brought back Ross’ bunker style on numerous holes, like the short 8th.

In reality, the hilly property sloping towards Kennebecasis Bay lends itself to great golf. Holes like the short par 5, 2nd, with its attractive bunkering scheme near the green and the dry ditch running up the left is old world cool. The same can be said about the 3rd with its heavily canted fairway, the pushed up green at the 16th. Fans of exquisite ending one-shot holes will be fond of the brilliant par 3, 18th at Riverside, tumbling down the hillside with the Bay in the back and a deception bunker short.
