Halifax's Private Golf Experience

Ashburn is a club with a rich history and an outstanding membership. This club has been known as “Ashburn” since 1922, but the game of golf has been enjoyed by members of the Halifax Golf & Country Club since 1896. Now with two challenging 18-hole golf courses, the Old and New, both with comprehensive practice facilities, Ashburn takes its place among the leading private golf clubs in Canada. In 2014 and 2015 Ashburn was the only Canadian stop in the Web.com Tour, and the proud home of the Nova Scotia Open.

Originally designed by Stanley Thompson, the Old Course is minutes from downtown Halifax. The layout is short but tight and offers spectacular views of the city. Its clubhouse is popular for dining, family occasions, banquets, weddings and corporate functions.

The New Course, which opened in 1970, is located about 35 km north of Halifax in Fall River. Situated beside Kinsac Lake, the championship course designed by Geoffrey Cornish is guaranteed to challenge any golfer. The New Course clubhouse offers members a relaxed atmosphere and a private dining experience.

Unique, vibrant, and inviting, experience Eastern Canada's only truly private golf club.
