PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND – ONLY A RIDE AWAYPrince Edward Island is located on the east coast of Canada, across the Northumberland Strait from neighbouring provinces Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. On the north side of the Island, you’ll find the Gulf of St. Lawrence that leads out to the Atlantic Ocean.
Not only does our location mean that our climate is ideally suited for golf, but it also means that we’re centrally located, with many notable Atlantic Canada courses within easy travelling distance. Our Island is accessible by air, land and water, with the Charlottetown Airport, the Confederation Bridge and Northumberland Ferries serving the province and making your PEI golf vacation only a ride away.
