Ben - thank you for posting these pictures. The whole course looks mouth-watering. Does the 9th have traces of a reverse Redan or is the middle part of the green flatter than it looks. Love the ridge front left though and bunker short right.
My recollection is that no there aren't any traces of a reverse Redan. I would also argue that around 100 yards it would be too short as well since most golfers will be hitting something like a SW. And a Redan is supposed to be on top of a ridge or hill - hence the reason why it is named after a fortress, that is definitely not the case here.
After perusing this thread off and on over the last week, I've just spent 90 minutes planning and budgeting a Nova Scotia trip. I don't know whether to thank Ben or put him on my Ignore List before he costs me a few thousand dollars.

Again you won't be sorry!
Hole 6171 YardsPar 3This hole may easily be overshadowed by the spectacular setting of 16, but this may have been my favorite hole on the course. Directly downwind, and playing into a idyllic theater in the dunes, this hole challenges the modern golfers perception of aerial golf and playing to a specific yardage. The green is IMMENSE and has two distinct levels, with the back half 5-6 feet below the front. With pin positions on the front half as they were for both of my plays (and I suspect they normally will be), it takes a as little as a sand wedge and deft touch to keep one's ball on the front half of the green and avoid a very difficult putt back up the ridge.
