Located on the stunning west coast of Cape Breton, Cabot Links features an 18-hole par-70 course in addition to deluxe accommodations at Cabot Links Lodge. The Rod Whitman designed course incorporates the spectacular Cape Breton landscape, dramatic seaside, undulating terrain and sandy soil.
Golf Digest ranked Cabot Links at 42nd among its World's 100 Greatest Golf Courses and GOLF Magazine also included the course in its Top 100 Courses in the World. The magazine noted: "Firm, rumpled, fescue fairways, coastal breezes and endless views of the Gulf of St. Lawrence make it abundantly clear why Nova Scotia is the Latin name for "New Scotland.""
Cabot Links co-owners Ben Cowan-Dewar and Mike Keiser have started construction on a second 18-hole golf course in Inverness. Cabot Cliffs is being built just north of Cabot Links on a property overlooking the Cape Breton coastline and is scheduled for opening in July 2015. It is designed by internationally recognized course architects Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw.
