  Captain's Hill Course View
by jamiesno

Captain's Hill is the original 9-hole course in Pippy Park. Named in recognition of the area's seafaring history, Captain's Hill sits high above the city with great vistas of the coastline.

Captain's Hill is located within minutes of downtown St. John's, with a full panoramic view of the city. You can see from the picture I took you get a great view out through the narrows on some holes, a view of Signal Hill and the Confederation Building.

In 2002 4 new forward tees were constructed to make the course more user friendly for all golfers. The course can now be played at length from 2326 to 3047 yards.

The course has some wind but the scenery is great. Be warned this is another course with some hills as well, making it an interesting walk and for some interesting tee shots!

Overall though I must say I enjoyed this course a lot. Great for getting 9 holes in.

Directions: Just look up on the hill behind the confederation building and you will see the club house.
Theme: Golfing
