Significant upgrades over the past number of years have allowed the course to keep pace with newer courses while maintaining the golf experience that Stanley intended. The parkland setting, through an evergreen forest, is complemented by the course’s circular layout which brings the prevailing wind into place at almost every conceivable angle.
The course is characterized by a winding brook that has been dammed to create two outstanding par 3 holes - one of which is the signature #2 hole. The par 5, #7 hole, is a winding, dipping adventure, rated as one of the most difficult holes in Canada.
Don’t let the 6284 yards from the back tees fool you. With the narrow
landing areas, mounded bunkers, small greens and prevailing winds, Digby Pines plays much longer. The 2 additional tee locations on each hole allow for friendlier play for those who don’t hit the ball far.
Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa is an elegant and historic property, dating back to the late 1920s. With its 4 star rating, it is one of Atlantic Canada’s premier destinations. The addition of a 2500 square foot AVEDA concept spa adds to the total experience at Digby Pines.
Even after more than 80 years, the Stanley Thomspon masterpiece continues to give golfer’s a truly “classic” experience.
