With two courses boasting tremendous facilities in separate locations—one central and the other outside of Halifax—Ashburn offers a wide variety of membership options. Eastern Canada’s only truly private golf experience, Ashburn is the perfect place to perfect your game, either on our challenging classic Old Course, or try your luck against the championship-length New Course. With practice facilities at both courses—including a new practice area at the Old Course—Ashburn provides a great opportunity to work on your game even when you don’t have the time to sneak in 18 holes.
