Ron Joyce, who started Canada's popular Tim Hortons coffee shop franchise, established this ritzy resort in the wilds of Nova Scotia some ways outside Halifax. Along the back nine is a runway where more well off members of the resort arrive in their private planes. Graham Cooke laid out the par 3 course, which shares the grounds with facilities for hunting and tennis. The opening holes are threaded through evergreens, with the course broadening out at the par 4 10th. From there the course works its way west before pivoting on the 14th, where the green occupies a spot near Joyce's mansion. Next comes a series of a par 3 and a pair of par 4s that are particularly scenic, with views down to the Northumberland Straits. These delights are enough to make up for the weak par 5 18th that brings players to a green in front of the clubhouse.
