The River Course – Humber Valley Resort, Pasadena, Newfoundland
The River Course at Humber Valley Resort is a raw and rugged wilderness layout cut through vast forests, in a surprisingly mountainous region of western Newfoundland. The course layout traverses down over 300-feet to the shores of Deer Lake before gently climbing back up to the sentinel clubhouse. The back nine begins with a dramatic tee shot plunging over 150 feet to the fairway below and features one of the most spectacular golf course views in Canada. The following series of holes are nestled through wooded valleys before golfers are exposed to the majestic Humber River winding alongside the 14th and 15th holes. It’s the natural diversity of the land that defines the Humber Valley Resort creating friendly, memorable and enjoyable golf experience.
While Humber Valley’s remote location may be somewhat challenging to get to for many Canadians, the resort development proved to be hugely attractive to vacation homeowners living in Britain, Ireland and Europe. Homeowners enjoy a completely natural and secluded environment with one-of-a-kind views from their chalets out over the golf course, Deer Lake and the Humber River.
In 2005 Humber Valley Resort was named the Best New Golf Course Development by Homes Overseas Magazine and was applauded for the seamlessly integration of homes and golf course into the natural environment.
In 2007 Golf Magazine named The River Course at Humber Valley Resort as The Best New International Golf Course. SCOREGolf Magazine named Humber Valley as the Best New Course in Canada in 2007.
