PEI is a golfer’s paradise, just the way businesses and corporate event goes like it

With 400 fairways closer than you can imagine, most within a 45-minute drive of downtown Charlottetown, is it any wonder that Prince Edward Island—this small but mighty golfer’s paradise—is one of North America’s premier places for corporate getaways?

The facts speak for themselves. With a third of PEI’s links built after 1990—many offering breathtaking views of the ocean and rolling hills—the Island now boasts the most golf courses per capita in Canada.

Meanwhile, historic theatres, farm-to-table restaurants, a state-of-the-art waterfront convention centre and picture-perfect island views all make PEI the perfect backdrop to do business. And once your work is done, you can take advantage of one or more of the over 20 courses here, knitting golf seamlessly into the whole Island adventure.

That means peerless hospitality, historic sites, scrumptious seafood, red-sand dunes and great golf just the way you like it, says Woody Bishop, Golf PEI board member, Meetings and Conventions Prince Edward Island (M&CPEI) partner, and general manager of Glasgow Hills Resort and Golf Club, a championship 18-hole course in Cavendish.

“The synergies between our amazing links, our amenities, and our business event locations are simply unbeatable. Maybe you’re on a little breakout and want to play nine holes. Then, you go for a hike or mountain bike on one of our trails. You have lunch and then you go back to your conference … Really, we all work together to tailor the perfect experience.”

Indeed, the team at M&CPEI—a free resource to connect you with everything you need for a successful meeting—makes it easy. Their Come Early, Stay Late program and exclusive hotel discounts encourage visitors to extend their stay. And, of course, some of Canada’s best golf resorts.
