Dundarave Golf Course official opened on July 15, 1999 after being delayed for about a month. The delay in opening of the course was a result of the dry weather which caused the grass to grow in slower than expected. The course was designed by two different award winning architects, Dr. Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry. It was designed as an expansion to the Brudenell River Resort and is intertwined throughout its sister course Brudenell River Golf Course.
In 2007, the provincial government began looking to sell the Dundarave Golf course, along with the other three courses it owns. The reasoning behind the decision was the large expenditure of taxpayer money on course maintenance, losses from the four courses totaled $858,900 in the 2014-2015 golf season. Tourism Minister Robert Henderson was quoted saying “Obviously, when you’re on the floor of the estimates [committee] … and you’re saying you invested in this stuff, sometimes comments get made that maybe that would have been better spent on an X-ray machine or books,” in relation to the government's decision to sell the courses. As of the 2015 golf season no sale had been completed and the course is still maintained by the provincial government.
The course is an eighteen hole championship golf course that is located on the Brudenell River. Dundarave golf course is among the top courses on Prince Edwards Island, it is rated the 37th best golf course in Canada and has been rated 4 1/2 stars by SCORE Golf. It was designed to exhibit the uniqueness of Prince Edward Island's red sandstone and has a particular bunker pattern containing 120 different red sand bunkers. The fairways on this course tend to be wide, while the holes snake through the woods and along the Brudenell River.
In 2006 Dundarave golf course hosted the Making the Connection - Legends of Golf, an event created by IMG Canada and Tourism PEI in conjunction with The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada to raise awareness of high cholesterol and the risk of heart disease and stroke.
