Mountain Bike Trail & Skill Park

Mountain Bike Park

The Links at Brunello’s Mountain bike trails offer a mixed level riding experience with gradual climbs in a forested setting. Our trails are located only minutes from downtown Halifax, and conveniently only a few cranks away from the BLT trailhead.

The closest point of access for the trail is behind the Trinity Church on Trinity Way (across from Tim Horton’s)

Due to the elevation gain and variety of terrain our 2.5 kms of bike trails are clearly marked with signage
for beginner, intermediate and advanced level trails to ride and were designed by local outdoor adventures group at Trail Flow.

The Links at Brunello will be charging a small fee that goes back into the cost of maintaining and upgrading the 2.5 kms of trails and any future upgrades.

Access Fees:

Access Fee Up to 1 Hour

Family is one to two adults & their children

TRAILS & TRAIL MAP

Challenging riding that may contain steeper slopes, and larger obstacles, possibly on narrow trails with constructed features. These may include jumps, ramps, large roots or rocks, rollable drop-off’s and other technical elements. Must be an experienced rider. Optional Advanced features and lines may be present.

Notice to all Mountain Bike Park Users

As with many sports, mountain biking involves the risk of injury, including serious injury, head injury, paralysis or death. The risk of injury increases with the degree of difficulty of the trail and the speed of the descent. Although the risk of injury can never be eliminated, the rider can manage the risk through controlling speed and choosing terrain appropriate for the rider’s skill and experience. Orientation sessions, lessons clinics and coaching offered through The Hub will also assist the rider in managing the risk of injury.

The most important thing to me is that my students have fun while still learning the necessary skills to help them improve!

PGA TEACHING PROFESSIONAL

Joe MacIsaac

PGA member since: 2015

Previous courses:
Antigonish Golf Club, Antigonish, NS
Kingswood Golf Course, Fredericton, NB
Cabot Links/ Cliffs, Inverness, NS
The Links At Brunello Halifax, NS

How long have you been playing: Growing up I played tons of other sports and golf was just one of those sports. Once I turned 16 though I fell in love with the game all over again and really wanted to  focus on golf and get better. So as I was finishing up high school I figured if I’m going to be doing something the rest of my life I may as well enjoy doing it!

Goals when teaching: When I’m teaching, I really want to make it fun for everyone, it doesn’t matter if it’s their first time ever swinging a golf club or if they’ve been playing their whole life. I want everyone to enjoy golf because it’s such a great game. I like to adjust my teaching style depending on the person. Some people really enjoy taking a deep dive into everything to do with the golf swing and others just like some simple tips on how to improve. That is why I love teaching so much you always have to adapt but it’s so rewarding when you see your clients improve

Keeping the fun in the game!

We all know how important it is to introduce the next generation of golfers to the game. The Links at Brunello Golf Academy has created Junior Golf Programs aimed at making the game more fun and accessible for all. Our programs are geared for juniors ages 5 and up. All of our junior instruction, including clinics and camps, are designed with keeping the fun in the game, while learning the golf fundamentals, life skills, rules and etiquette. For those that are looking to take their game to a more competitive level, our Learn to Compete Program offers that specific pathway and to grow further within the competitive realm of junior golf.

The Links at Brunello Coaching Staff help golfers reach their goals, emphasize the individual’s unique set of skills and use each players own strengths and weaknesses to plan appropriate instruction, practice and play. Instructors analyze golfer’s swings and pay close attention to ball flight – teaching to the individual.

We offer a wide variety of programs to satisfy any skill level, regardless of experience. When working with our younger players, the concept of ‘Coaching’ rather than strictly ‘Instructing’ is emphasized. Such a framework will address golf and life skills as they pass through stages of development, encouraging fun and skill development for many years to come.
