About
A scenic, ocean-side golf course, Green Gables measures 7,000 yards from the back tees and has everything you would expect of one of the Island's top-rated links. Classic rolling greens guarded by deep bunkers, six water holes, an ever changing breeze and the dunes of PEI's famous north shore serving as a backdrop. This beautiful course was designed and built in 1939 by one of the world's most renowned architects, the late Stanley Thompson. Now, nearly seventy years later, another legend among architects has renewed the spirit of Green Gables. Thomas McBroom, whose designs have achieved innumerable awards and accolades, has blended his own unique perspective with Thompson's original concept to ensure Green Gables meets the highest standards of golfing expectations. "Two Master Minds, One Master Piece."

Geese poop on two holes
Jul. 2021 • Couples
The canada geese poop on the 16th tee box, 16 green and 17th fairway is disgusting. Out golf carts were covered in it.
We will not be back.

Not worth the money......
Aug. 2020
We had golfed this course several times before, but will never go back again! They charged us the full rack rate today, but the course was in bad shape. We expected it to be dry, but well maintained. Not so much. Greens were ok, fairways dry and not well cut, and none of the fairway bunkers have been raked for weeks (and only a few around the greens had been raked). We have never seen bunkers with cart tracks in them. Starter was nice, but embarrassed when we told him how disappointed we were. Pro shop staff didn’t give a sh.... when we complained! We golfed Crowbush earlier in the week and it was lovely and about the same price. With all the other golf courses in PEI, there are lots of better choices.

Poor Hospitality
Aug. 2020
Was pretty unimpressed with a number of things at this course. The process for check in was frustrating everyone had to fill out a form for their cart and return their key which seemed pretty pre school. The club house was a disappointment as it was absurdly hot, I could not believe that there was no A/C at such an expensive course like this one. We had to have our post round drinks up the road at Lost Anchor. The beverage cart was no where to be seen until 11am...The course itself was great, some major changes need to be made by management...

Great Stanley Thompson Course
Sep. 2019
While it is no longer fashionable to build golf courses in national parks, I am sure glad that someone had the foresight to hire the great Stanley Thompson to build seven courses in six different provinces including Green Gables in PEI National Park. It's a very well designed course that has seen substantial changes over the years so its not the equal of Highlands Links in Cape Breton or Jasper in Alberta which are both top ten Canadian courses. It has gentle elevation changes consistent with PEI's terrain and includes some great water views on the back nine. Also on the front nine you go right by the iconic Green Gables house made famous by Anne of Green Gables.

While this is not a real hard course, it's also no pushover. The greens are very tricky. Always a pleasure to play, particularly in the fall.

What happened
Jul. 2019 • Friends
I played this course in 2016 and it was fantastic so I was really looking forward to playing it again. I was disappointed in the condition of the Greens and the course in general. This has beautiful holes and it is a shame that it was not up to the standards I remember. There are other courses to play.

Best on the island
Aug. 2019 • Couples
Properly manicured tee boxes, fairways and greens. Challenging course! If you normally score in the 90's, expect to not break 100. But, you will have a great time!

I always enjoy playing this course
Jun. 2019 • Friends
This was always a fun course to play, but the additions that were carved into the course a number of years ago made it even more fun. There are forgiving fairways but smartly placed sand traps that make sure you don't get to confident. Par 3s over water and long par 5s to make use of all your clubs. This is my favorite course in the Cavendish area.

Very close to being poor but I gave it an average.
Jul. 2018 • Couples
Played the course on Canada Day, July 1, and it was not in good condition and with a temporary green on the 4th hole. I attributed some of the condition of the course to the fact that the grounds staff had the day off but given the temporary green and the below average conditions generally, I would have thought a discount to the fee should have been applied. The staff were friendly and it's a well designed lay-out, with the only real fault being that from the forward back tees virtually all of the par 3s are within 30 yards of each other, between 165 and 195 yards. Some very challenging holes but certainly not in the same league as say Andersons Creek which has a superior design. A bit disappointing and hope its condition improves over the summer for others.

Excellent track for serious golfer
Jul. 2018 • Solo
Just finished playing a three day tournament at Green Gables in Cavendish. I've played this course many times over the years but this was first time playing a serious competition.
You may know this is an original Stanley Thompson design that was slightly redesigned and refreshed by Tom McBroom. The layout never gives a chance to relax or take a breather. Every hole is challenging, specifically with the bunker placements. Plus every green is completely different.
This course is set in a national park so, if you choose to walk, you will get tired towards the end.
There is a premium on driving the ball and putting. You simply cannot be above the hole or you will risk a three putt.
This is a highly recommended golf course. One if the top 5 on PEI.

Very nice golf course
Jun. 2018 • Couples
Very impressed with this golf course. Beautiful layout and very well maintained course. Enjoyed meeting the head pro and the other staff. Challenging from the tops but obtainable for all levels. Lots of recent work has been done to bring it to its current level. Worth the price for sure.
