The golf course is in its fifth year of operations and continues to build on the growth of the past season where membership increased by almost 30% from the previous year.

Designed by Atlantic Canada’s leading golf course architect, Robert LeBlanc, the course beautifully showcases the rolling wooded area and features inland lakes, rolling plains, meadows, river valleys, rocky bluffs, and coastal estuaries. Aspotogan Ridge is truly one of Nova Scotia’s hidden gems.
