Sculpted into the rocky hillsides that comprise the shores of an Atlantic Ocean inlet, The View Golf Resort charms clubbers with sweeping vistas throughout its nine-hole, executive course. Seaside breezes snake through groves of pine trees and fairway-side shrubs, cooling off players and hot-tempered 9-irons as they traverse the 2,250-yard layout. The course challenges duffers with narrow fairways cleaved through ponds, sand traps, and natural hazards, placing accurate shot-making at a premium.
Along with its scenic fairway chain, The View Golf Resort regales guests with two distinct eating options—the Dining Room and Lounge—that serve a menu of traditional Newfoundland cuisine. Six well-appointed suites dot the resort’s placid expanse, providing overnight accommodations for those hoping to enjoy a romantic getaway with their golf bag or spend a weekend boating, hiking, or fishing in the resort’s rustic surroundings.

Crosswinds fresh off the Atlantic, scenic views of the province’s capital, and rolling woodlands. These scenic assets at Bally Haly Golf have enticed golfers since the course debuted more than a century ago with just nine holes. Today, a full-fledged 18-hole course wends its way among small ponds and streams, designed to make the most of the sloping terrain—which rarely gives players the chance to strike their shot from a flat lie, unless they’ve sent their caddie ahead with a clothes iron. After mastering the pine-lined fairways and tricky greens, golfers relax at a recently renovated clubhouse with indoor curling facilities and a refurbished deck. The clubhouse restaurant refuels players with seafood and steak paired with beer or wine, as they tell tales of winning spitting contests with the camels that lurk in sand traps.
