The Links at Brunello designed to provide “stunning vistas and superior golf experience over dramatic terrain”
HALIFAX, NS – April 23, 2013 - Tom McBroom, award-winning golf course architect and designer, was in Halifax today to reveal designs for his latest project: The Links at Brunello, a new championship golf course located in Halifax.
This 7,100-yard, 18-hole course is located off of Highway 103 (Exit 3), a 15 minute drive from the city’s downtown, and is linked to Halifax’s newest lifestyle community, Brunello Estates.
“This course boasts stunning vistas and unexpected views, and is laid out on dramatic terrain that enables us to give golfers the ‘wow’ they’re looking for,” says McBroom. “It’s built on a grand scale, but is gorgeous and playable - designed for every class of player to enjoy and have fun on.”
The Links at Brunello is anticipated to be ready for play by June 2015. “I hope that the golf community in Halifax and beyond will enjoy playing this course as much as I’ve enjoyed designing it,” said McBroom. “It is a true golf course, offering a great golf experience within the context of a residential community,” explains McBroom.
McBroom joined the development team at Brunello Estates as Course Design Advisor and has been working closely with CEO Rob Dexter and his team since 2008. “We are thrilled to have been able to partner with Tom McBroom. His calibre of talent as a course designer has allowed us to add ‘great golf experience’ to the many offerings in this unique community,” says Dexter.
Brunello Estates is a newly developed lifestyle community, featuring more than 500 acres of rolling, wooded landscape. Its 3,200 residences will comprise single family homes, townhouses and apartment living. In addition to the course, the Brunello Estates community will include business amenities, shops, restaurants, and a full-service community centre surrounded by tennis courts, a skating rink, boat launch and nature trails. 48 per cent of the development is dedicated to open space. Since construction began in summer 2011, more than 60 percent of the community’s phase one has been sold and 52 homes have been built.
Tom McBroom is recognized across Canada and other parts of the world as a legendary designer of premier golf courses. He is well known in the Atlantic Provinces for his major contributions to prominent local courses including Crowbush, Algonquin, Green Gables and Bell Bay.
