A Visit From The Great Babe Ruth

Did you know that the baseball legend, Babe Ruth, celebrated his retirement with frequent visits to Nova Scotia? He had strong ties to the province since his mentor, Brother Matthias Boutlier, who was raised in Cape Breton.

Our Nova Scotia resort opened in 1929 and since then, we have remained as one of the best places to stay, eat, and golf in Atlantic Canada. During his visits to Nova Scotia, he would enjoy golfing, hunting and fishing in the area. It was often a relaxing trip to the coastal province with a few visits to Digby Pines Resort for a round of golf. Digby Pines has been around for many years. Legend has it that it was the Bambino who drove the green on our 11th hole, 278 yds. Which with the golf equipment of the day was no small feat.

The spark of history that comes with the sound of his name is inspiring. Despite last playing nearly 75 years ago, Babe is still widely considered the greatest player in Major League Baseball history and we are proud to have had him at our resort!
