The Facility & Bayside

Granite Springs Golf Club opened up in 1991 and was designed by famed architects Cornish & Robinson.  It is a full-length 18-hole par 72 with approximately 250 members and a mix of member and guest play.

It was purchased in 2016 by Dongdu International (DDI), a real estate developer. DDI owns approximately 1300 acres surrounding the facility and plans to develop a larger community in the future.

Granite Springs is located only 19 km from Halifax, Nova Scotia, and is settled about 25 minutes southwest of Halifax.  Moving to Granite Springs would be a lifestyle choice that would allow for a beautiful seaside community setting home base and yet be only minutes from a major city with all the amenities, including a lively city center with world-class entertainment and an international airport. Many choose to live on the East Coast for their friendly people, beautiful surroundings, vibrant culture, and maritime history.  Housing and overall affordability are as strong as anywhere in the country.
