Green Gables Golf Course is the product of legendary vision, twice over. First conceived and constructed by a forefather of modern golf course architecture, it has been rejuvenated by one of today’s leading golf course designers. Following a year of intensive remodeling, Green Gables’ much anticipated enhancements will be finally unveiled on August 1st. Carved out of the rolling farmlands of Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, Green Gables came to life in 1939 through the extraordinary imagination and talent of Stanley Thompson, one of the world’s most celebrated golf course architects. Thompson, a native Canadian who designed, remodeled, or constructed 145 courses throughout Canada, the US, the Caribbean, and South America, molded Green Gables ocean-side fairways from the natural terrain to create this 18 hole, par 72 course.
