The "new" Algonquin Golf course designed by award winning architect Thomas McBroom has created a golf masterpiece in a spectacular seaside location. The "new" facility incorporated the land from the original 18 hole and 9 hole courses plus additional 50 acres and transformed it into a world class golf course measuring close to 7000 yards and playing to a par of 71. Included is a full service Golf Academy with a 20 acre practice range, a separate short game area and a putting green. The golf course has been recently rated as the top course to play in the province (rating by Borseman). Other courses in Charlotte County include the St. Stephen Golf Club, the St. Croix Golf & Country Club in Calais, ME and the Campobello Herring Cove Provincial Golf Course. For variety, another six courses are located in the Saint John area.
 
Saint Andrews also has the W.C. O'Neill Arena, an impressive multi-purpose facility. It has rinks for curling, hockey and skating, theatres and tennis courts. In the summer, one of the oldest and most prestigious hockey schools in North America operates at the arena.
