|Description & Services|
|Information||Beautifully located in the Highland Heart of Nova Scotia, the Antigonish Golf & Country Club is rich in heritage, including a kilted golf tournament held in conjunction with the world famous Antigonish Highland Games. All players in "The Kilted" must wear a tartan kilt. Of course, many of the players are not of Scottish lineage and so borrow some heritage for the day, wearing a loaned or rented kilt of an adopted family name.
The Antigonish Golf & Country Club is a private golf course which offers a highland welcome to green fee players with the Gaelic expression Ciad Mille Failte - "A Hundred Thousand Welcomes". The AGCC features a par 72 course measuring 6640 yards from the black tees with a slope rating of 136.
The head professional is C.P.G.A. Professional Edwin Ryan. The club has an active junior program, for which Ed has received a national award.
