Whenever Kent Hudson, the general manager of the Glasgow Hills Resort & Golf Club, wants to catch his breath, he heads for the course’s 17th fairway. “This place can bring you back to reality when the heat is on and you need 20 minutes,” he says. From that vantage point on Prince Edward Island’s newest golf course, he can see 80 km in any direction: the rolling hills dotted with farms, the island’s famous red soil, the sparkling waters of river and bay. He hopes the view along with a stunning design by famed course architect Les Furber will help investors recoup their $5-million stake in Glasgow Hills. Perhaps best of all is what Hudson can’t see from there: the three courses already operating nearby and another in the works a reminder of just how competitive the fight for golfing dollars has become on Prince Edward Island.
