From Our Editors
River Hills Golf & Country Club's 18-hole course hems the shores of the Clyde River, stretching across 6,389 yards of tree-lined fairways that played host to the 2010 Nova Scotia Men's Amateur Golf Championship. Breezes drift from the Shelburne waterfront, rustling the leaves of the course's dense tree lines and masking the romantic sonnets golfers whisper to their putters. A stately stone wall runs alongside much of the course, and water hazards loom on the edges of six holes, heightening difficulty as golfers journey on in their quest for par. Stationed in a renovated farmhouse that predates the course itself, the clubhouse invites golfers to enjoy a post-round nosh or stare down rival flagsticks from the patio deck, which overlooks six holes.
