Gage Golf and Curling Club

Riverbend Golf Club
Riverbend is a long 18-hole course that winds along the Naashwaak River, which feeds into the Wolastoq (Saint John River). Riverbend is fairly open with decently sloped and intricate greens making approach forgiving, but the short game challenging.

Carman Creek is a fun, educational and surprisingly challenging 9-hole course consisting of par threes and fours. The second half of the course introduces tricky water placements that force a tight approach game. It’s a fantastic place to bring junior players, new players, or larger groups looking for a relaxing, fun time.
Pro Tips: Golfers under 18 pay $16.52 for nine holes, (regular price $24.35).
On Wednesdays from 11am until 3pm, two players can golf 9 holes and get a warm-up bucket of balls (to be used at the Carman Creek range) for $33.04, a $62 value!
Gilridge Golf Club
Another 9-hole course in the area, Gilridge Golf Club is a woodsy course which forces tight iron play.

This is a great course to bring new golfers, young golfers or a group looking for a good time.
Pro Tip: Gilridge offers the “911 Savers Pass,” to healthcare workers, firefighters, police and Armed Forces members. With the purchase of this pass for $40, frontline workers can play 9 holes for only $15 per round.
