Flex your mussels at Glasgow Hills Golf Club on Prince Edward Island

HUNTER RIVER, Prince Edward Island, Canada -- With panoramic overlooks from the clubhouse as well as views of the River Clyde and the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Glasgow Hills Golf Club is one of the prettiest and most challenging golf courses on Prince Edward Island. There are four sets of tee from 5,279 yards to 6,915 yards on this par-72 Les Furber Design course that was built in 2001.

With several elevated tees, and differences in terrain, many of the holes are set up for dramatic shots. The par-4 ninth, for example, has an island green, while both the 10th and 17th holes have substantial elevation changes.

And one thing that's unique to Glasgow Hills is the post-round celebrations, which include complimentary unlimited mussels, plentiful in the waters off PEI.
