Amherst Golf Club woos competitors to its emerald splendour with long, challenging holes and scenic views of the Maritimes. As the winds from the Tantramar Marsh and Bay of Fundy toy with approach shots and the tender affections of nearby wind chimes, shooters can take in panoramic vistas of the Atlantic coast from the 18-hole course. Swingers launch themselves on a sinuous journey through the natural landscape, wending through narrow fairways and fast greens bordered by woodland trim. Amherst maintains well-manicured grounds, earning the esteem of novices and seasoned putters with challenges such as the first hole, a 568-yard, double dogleg, par 5 affair bounded by a narrow, tree-lined fairway. At the other end, a pristine pond spurting an active fountain and blasts from a T-shirt cannon anchors the undulating greens of the 18th hole, where players bid adieu to the course before retreating to the pro shop to report scores or secure postgame snacks.
