FREDERICTON (GNB) – The Mactaquac Golf Course is scheduled to reopen on June 5.

The provincial government announced in March that it would take over the operation and management of the Mactaquac course for the 2020 golf season. Since then, the Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture has been hiring staff and ensuring the course is prepared for the season while also respecting Public Health directives to help protect the safety of employees, golfers and other members of the community.

“It is with great anticipation and pride that we are announcing the upcoming opening of the Mactaquac Golf Course,” said Tourism, Heritage and Culture Minister Bruce Fitch. “I congratulate all the employees of the department and Mactaquac Provincial Park for their diligence in making sure the appropriate measures are in place for the safety of visitors, employees and the public, while also ensuring golfers can continue to enjoy this exceptional golf course.”

Built in the 1970s, the championship course is part of Mactaquac Provincial Park, a year-round recreational facility consisting of a 300-site campground, two supervised beaches, two marinas and numerous nature trails.

Information on golf course fees is available on the Mactaquac Provincial Park Facebook page and the department website.
