Play a Round of Golf

Prince Edward Island might be Canada’s smallest, least-populated island, but it is known as Canada’s best golfing destination. Its 34 courses are renowned for their natural beauty, variety, design, and the fact that they’re all a half hour drive from Charlottetown.


Length of Trip : That depends, are you playing 9 holes, 18 holes, or mini-golf?

Cost : Courses typically range from $30 to $100 dollars for 18 holes.

Best time to go : June to September

Wheelchair friendly : No

Family friendly : Yes

Where to eat : Every course will have its 19th hole.

Official Site : Golf PEI allows you to book tee times and golf vacation packages to Prince Edward Island

Where to Stay : When visiting Charlottetown, we recommend staying with our partner, the Holiday Inn Express & Suites

The Inn at St. Peters 1668 Greenwich Road, St. Peters Bay Ph: 800-818-0925 Email:

Getting There : PEI’s golf courses can be found around the island. Given PEI’s small size, all the courses in PEI are located about a half hour’s drive from Charlotteown.

Note from Robin : Don’t be confused by the lush fairways that seem everywhere in PEI. Those are just gardens. Locals take extraordinary pride in mowing their expansive lawns.

New 2017 Ford Escape

It’s a rare occasion when the name of a car aligns so perfectly with what I’ve used it for. Whether rocketing along the notorious Trans-Labrador Highway, or cruising among the mountainous candy of the Icefield Parkway, the Ford Escape has indeed lived up to its name. It has stood up to some pretty epic challenges, and that includes taking a 6-month baby on a 30-day cross-country book tour. Compact yet spacious, powerful yet fuel efficient, and loaded with features you’ll soon wonder how you did without, the Ford Escape more than lives up to its moniker. – Robin Esrock
