Glen Arbour means "a valley of trees," and that is an apt moniker; Glen Arbour Golf Course has tree-lined perimeters and a valley through, in which the golf course is routed.
This Halifax, Nova Scotia golf course has lush bentgrass tees, fairways and greens. The natural lakes and streams that cut through the layout are usually in play, if not always in view. Nos. 14, 15, 16 and 17 wrap around Bottle Lake, for example. The 14th, in particular, is a very scenic hole, following the contours of the lake. No. 15 is a sharp, dogleg right into a small green, and the 17th is a picturesque, 207-yard par 3 over marsh with the lake to your left.
Glen Arbour is a scenic, playable golf course that's convenient to city dwellers or tourists visiting Halifax. It won't overwhelm you with its length, being 6,800 yards from the back tees.
