The 18-hole "Ken-Wo G.C." course at the Ken-Wo Golf Club facility in New Minas, Nova Scotia features all the hallmarks of Nova Scotia golf. Ken-Wo G.C. golf course opened in 1921. Rene MacKay, CPGA manages the course as the Director of Golf.
Ken-Wo is a pretty difficult, older-style layout. It has held a lot of provincial tournaments over the years. I don't usually play early in the season, because my game needs a tune-up before playing here, and sometimes the course condition can be a little spotty. By mid-summer it's usually in top-notch shape though, and the greens are always quick. Fairways are mostly narrow, through chutes of softwood and birch trees. Beautiful clubhouse, nice spot to relax and watch groups on the deck and enjoy a beer.Update: 26/may 2009 Played the course twice this past week, and it is already in fantastic shape. Fairways are good, a little dry, but that's not a problem at this time of year. Better than being wet. Greens are perfect, rolls are true, medium-fast. Midweek afternoon discounts are a steal. The first 13 holes give the average golfer a good chance for par if you keep the ball in the fairway and on the right portion of the green. The last 5 are just plain tough, you feel like you didn't hit a really bad shot, and still walk away with double-bogeys. The left side of 17 is just plain unfair, the only part of the course I can say that about.
