With a new golf course under way, there’s no place like Fox Harb’r Resort

For a quarter of a century, Fox Harb’r Resort’s uniquely casual elegance—fine dining, outdoor adventures, luxurious spa, functional yet exquisite meeting space—has included a championship golf course and academy at its ruggedly beautiful location on Nova Scotia’s North Shore.

Now, the Fox Harb’r team is taking that distinctiveness a step further by reimagining a new golf experience—designed by two of Canada’s foremost course architects, Doug Carrick and Tom McBroom. “Our goal is to create the finest golf destination in Canada,” says Fox Harb’r Resort President Kevin Toth. “We have the land, the ocean and the passion.”

Indeed, they do, and not just for golf. Consider the new state-of-the-art 37,000-square-foot Joyce Centre. Offering 10,000 square-feet of meeting space, it’s the perfect synthesis of charm and functionality for business events, incentives and retreats.

Then, there’s the resort’s junior Olympic-sized swimming pool and fully appointed ocean view private retreats. There’s also sport shooting, archery, sea kayaking and the world class Dol-ás Spa. Meanwhile, award-winning chefs cater to every taste with inspired repasts made with fresh, local ingredients.

Still, the new golf experience may be the resort’s crowning achievement. Anchored along the dramatic Northumberland Strait, a new 18-hole course will be “rough and tumbling, natural-looking, an oceanside terrain,” says architect Carrick. Adds his partner McBroom: “We’re taking a wild and windswept look and making it a little more elegant.” The duo are also working on an additional 18-hole heathland-style course, to be known as the Vineyard Course. The first phase of the resort’s golf course expansion will be ready for play in 2025.

And so it is: A stunning oceanside and vineyard setting offering a 360-degree experience in luxury without pretension, proving once again that there really is no place like Fox Harb’r Resort.
