20 minutes south of Moncton, the village of Memramcook is home to The Memramcook Valley Golf Club, one of the most beautiful and picturesque golf courses in New Brunswick. After a round of golf, you can stop in at the Latitude 46 Estate Winery.

As with most villages, home lots tend to be larger and houses further apart. If you enjoy country living, this may be the area for you.
