Golf coures was excellent condition! Unfortunately as for the “Stay” part of our ‘Play and Stay Package’ i cant say was the same!

Our rooms were decent,

The restaurant was HORRIBLE all arround, from service to the food to the quantity and quality.

As for the all the staff , they were not helpful whatsoever, none of them
Knew anything about the resort let alone anything within an hr’s drive.
Concidering we were 2 young couples both of us celebrating our anniversaries, that was also NOT taking in concideration whatsoever by staff. Been to many other hotels that would have offered to buy a bottle of wine or chocolates.

These guys...NOTHING!

The pool was okay, for the 1hr that we were allowed to be there for . And 40 min of that hr, the slide was off as well as the hot tub!

I would come back up to golf, but NEVER to stay at that hotel again.

Recomendation 0/10.

I have had the pleasure of hitting a few of the greens around Atlantic Canada, and in my own opinion, Mill River is one of the best... definitely in my own Top 3? Though the course is located some distance from Summerside, the onsite resort does offer an adequate stay (though the rooms show their age). Each hole provides plenty of visual appeal, and the white sand traps and water hazards add to not only the beautym but the challenge. Hole Five was my personal favorite, though I will save the details and let you enjoy the view/game! The course is not extremely difficult and provides a perfect spot for both pros and beginners a like. There is a driving range and practice green a few steps from the Pro Shop. Green fees are set at the just right value. The course cars are just like new and the staff was very friendly, displaying that characteristic Island hospitality. The only downfall: the resort hotel (especially the rooms) is in need of an upgrade (tube TVs? wall-paper?).

The golf course at Mill River is one of the best I've played. Immaculately kept and thoroughly chanllenging. The only problem was getting a socialble tee time.

This is a very good golf course. From the time you enter the club house to the time you putt out on 18. The staff are very helpful getting you off to the course. The course is a very clever mix of long and short holes with some wide fairways and some tightly shouldered targets. There are some generously large greens but not a level spot to be found on any of them. Make sure you have all your clubs, as you will need them. This track can be unforgiving and frustrating your first time around because of the many blind corners and hills, but the second round will be much more fun once you know what is ahead of you.

My son and I played Mill River at the beginning of July. We found the greens in good shape but the fairways could do with some help. There were patches of weeds growing in the fairway which didn't affect the play but weren't great to look at.
It is a challenging course to play with all the dog legs so you need to plan your shots.
The Pro Shop was under construction (and there was a lot of construction going on around the main building) but the staff were helpful. There was no take-out food from the main building so expect to wait for the refreshments cart or bring your own food.

Great coarse and amazing hospitality at the pro shop. The weather was bad but the service we received made up for it. Did some shopping and played most of the coarse. Would definitely put it on the list.

This is a difficult course and it requires some strategic thinking. I love #7, which is their signature hole. You have to place your play carefully on your first and second shot. Your first shot has to avoid the water traps that run all along the fairway. Your second shot is uphill over the water and onto the green.

They have another hole which is similarly challenging. You shoot downhill towards a pond and then uphill on the other side to get to the green. If you don't play it right, you lose your ball in the water.

The course is in good shape and beautifully landscaped. There isn't a level green anywhere.

You can use a push cart to get around. Plan for about 4.5 hours to get around this course.

I think this is now my favorite course.

The course was in great condition and the pace of play was great. Some of the holes are just beautiful. The staff was very professional and nice , we made a lot of jokes together. I would go back and stay longer at the resort to play more rounds.

The golf course is in exceptional condition due to the preventive maintainance during this very heavy snowfall the past winter.
The staff deserves credit for the exceptional care of the course.
Many players are enjoying this beautiful course.
