Welcome to the Cornwall Curling Club, located in Cornwall, Prince Edward Island, Canada! Curling is great exercise and a lot of fun! Our club emphasizes the social and recreational aspects of the game (although we’ve had Canadian champs and even a World champion!) and welcomes both new and experienced curlers. Check out the Info section of our website, or call, email or drop in to see what we have to offer, and why we should be your curling club. Note that we have members from all around Queens County, not just the Town of Cornwall, and boast more members than any other PEI curling facility.
Here is a list of bonspiels and funspiels coming at our Club this season. As always, dates are subject to change, and more events may be added. We will have more details on each of them as they approach.
The 7th annual Masters Plus event Nov. 21-22 attracts curlers from around the Maritimes, with a format that has three players age 60 and over and 1 player who is at least 55. Click for last year's wrapup.

As was discussed at the Annual General Meeting, we are making changes to our 50X50 "Snowball" draw for adult members this season. In the past we had followed the practice of most places doing these draws by requiring you to sign in weekly. As well, you had to sign in yourself - no one else could sign in for you. This is generally done for the purpose of bringing you into a place of business more frequently so they can sell you more of whatever they sell. This doesn't really apply to a curling club, where you ...

It was a perfect day for the Cornwall Curling Club's annual nine hole, best ball golf tournament today at Countryview Golf Club. The teams played a standard "scramble" format, except that the 9th hole had to be played with nine-irons only, except for the green, where a provided curling broom had to be used. Greg Groves managed to sink the putt on the first shot.

As we mentioned in the AGM recap, we are pleased to welcome Lori Fitzpatrick as our new manager. She is originally from Newfoundland, but has recently been the food and beverage manager at a golf and curling club in BC. Although not a curler, she is a curling fan, and attended the 2017 Brier in St. John's, won, of course, by Newfoundland's own Brad Gushue team. She even got a photo with Brad!
We have 4 sheets of Jet Ice, a clubhouse and ice plant (with backup power generator) that were completely replaced in the 2010/2011 season, an Ice King scraper bought new in 2012, ice-house heating and dehumidification, and are wheelchair accessible right down to the ice surface. We have a well-stocked Pro Shop and bar, and access to upstairs banquet facilities.
