Course Review – Brudenell River Golf Course

brudenell-logo1One of PEI’s finest, Brudenell River is a very playable course, offering opportunities and challenges to all skill levels.


The course is part of the Brudenell River Resort, along with its sister course Dundarave.

Brudenell River Golf Course is about 45min east of the Charlottetown Airport

Course Designer: 

C. E. Robbie Robinson, the architect of many notable Canadian courses, including Hamilton Golf & Country Club. He also has designed two courses in my neck of the woods, Rideau View Golf & Country Club and Upper Canada Golf Course.

In addition to Brudenell, he has two other PEI courses to his credit, Stanhope Golf & Country Club and Mill River Golf Course.

Year Opened:

Brudenell opened in 1969 and was one of, if not the first 18 hole championships golf course on the island.

Cost: $$$

$80 CDN walking isn’t the most expensive round of golf I have ever played, but its definitely above average for me.



Favorite Hole:

The par 3 10th is a pretty cool hole and it advertised as their signature hole, but my favorite was actually the par 3 5th, with the water on your left, woods on the right and a stream in front of the green you didn’t have much option to bail out, you had to go for it.


Why I would go back:

I made a couple of poor doubles on the front 9 that I would like back. The scenery was great and the course was fun to play.

Interesting Fact:

The course is set up as 6 par 4s, 6 par 3s and 6 par 5s, evenly split between the front and back 9s.

Bucket List = How high on my list of courses to play.

Overall, I really liked Brudenell. I had wanted to play it for a while, so was happy to cross it off my list, and I wasn’t disappointed.

The only think I didn’t like about the course was the putting green, which was built on the side of a hill so had a huge slope to it, whereas most of the greens on the course were pretty flat.

See you at the turn.

    Hi Aaron.
    I agree about the 5th hole, it’s a beauty. It’s definitely a course I could play over and over again. I enjoyed the review, brought back some great memories. I’m going to make it a priority to come out your way for a round next season.
    Cheers, Mike
