Offsite Activities

Golf Anyone??

As part of the Fall Conference package, The Lakes at Ben Eoin Golf Club & Resort is offering a 25% discount on their green fees (and power carts) between September 16th and 25th for AMANS Conference Delegates.  To book, visit their website and use the “Book a Tee Time” tab.  The promo code is AMANS2022 and it will work for both 9- and 18-hole rounds.  After registering an account and signing in, you will be asked for the promo code when checking out.  Tee times can be booked up to 3 days in advance.

For those who might be interested in staying at the Resort during that timeframe, The Lakes is also offering a full 25% off their standard rate for accommodations using the same promo code.  Their telephone number is 902-828-2277.   Anyone with accommodations booked in their name can book tee times over the phone earlier than the 3 days out.

The Lakes has a spectacular view of the beautiful Bras d’Or Lakes and is located at 5153 East Bay Highway, Ben Eoin, just 25 minutes from downtown Sydney.

As an alternative, Conference Delegates may be interested in playing a local 9-hole golf course, and the Conference Planning Committee is recommending Alderdale Greens Golf Course.  This is a lovely course located at 403 Rudderham Road, Point Edward - only 15 minutes from downtown Sydney.  The green fees are $18.40 per person and they have golf clubs as well as power/pull carts available to rent.  Tee times can be booked up to three days in advance by calling 902-564-6187.

Delegates are responsible for their own reservations and associated fees.
