Harmon Seaside Links
Originally designed as a nine-hole course for US Servicemen posted at the Stephenville Air Force Base in the 1960s. Since 2000, Harmon Seaside Links has boasted a Graham Cooke designed nine-hole extension. The combined holes provide a unique and challenging golf experience. Bordering on the scenic Gulf of St. Lawrence, Harmon’s ocean breeze adds a soothing feel to the course while at the same time requiring attention to prevailing winds at this true ‘links’ course.

The front nine meanders along the seaside and takes you through the tuckamore and coniferous woods that are prevalent along this rugged, beautiful coast. Remnants of Harmon Air Force Base are interspersed among the trees in the form of ammunition bunkers in much the same condition internally as they were more than 50 years ago (minus the ammunition). As you make the turn at number 5 our famous lagoons come into play. Depending on the time of year you might see ducks, geese, foxes, woodpeckers and occasionally moose on this part of the course.
The back nine has a dominant Scottish flavor, with high wavering fescue, and sand bunkers guarding most of the holes. This nine has a panoramic view of Bay St. George and the Gulf of St. Lawrence beyond. Anyone who likes to play golf will appreciate all the good things this course offers. Those who like to play golf at a links course will feel right at home at Harmon Seaside Links.
