River Oaks

Established in 1986, beautiful, scenic River Oaks is one of Nova Scotia's most picturesque golf destinations. River Oaks is a 27-hole full service facility for the green fee player, with accommodations and golf packages available on site. It includes an established 18 hole course and a newer (2001) regulation 9 hole South course.  

The 18-hole course layout features balanced front and back nines, including two par 3's, six par 4's and one par 5. River Oaks South is located across from the 18-hole course with a regulation 9-hole layout. The rolling hills and scenic terrain provide a challenge to any golfer. The South course plays as a par 36, ranging from 2,543 yards (front tees) to 3,113 yards (back tees), giving the players a variety to play 18 holes. River Oaks welcomes golfers of all levels, and offers challenges for everyone.


River Oaks features complete facilities, including a putting green, club and cart rentals, a pro shop and a licensed dining room. Special weekend packages are available, and River Oaks has expanded to include a lodge for overnight stays, with Stay and Play packages available. The club house, meanwhile, offers locker rooms and spacious comfort with a natural pine interior. A wrap around deck outside sports a panoramic view of the lush East Coast countryside.


The clubhouse is known for great homemade meals and snacks, check out our extensive menu. The kitchen also caters for corporate tournaments and special events - accommodating groups of 16 to 120. If you are planning a tournament, we'd love to hear from you.

The picturesque River Oaks courses are the realization of Merlin Kerr's dream to construct a course compatible with the environment and to provide a facility in keeping with the peacefulness and serenity of the Musquodoboit Valley.
