Cabot Cliffs Lodge, Inverness, Nova Scotia – 4.5 Star

Cabot Links features 36 holes of exhilarating links golf and one of the best resort experiences in the country.  With two acclaimed World Top 100 courses, 72 rooms of award-winning accommodation at Cabot Links Lodge, fourteen upscale Golf Villas and exquisite dining in three on-site restaurants, Cabot is designed to excite and inspire at every turn.

Located on over a mile of sandy beach along the coast of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Cabot Links is Canada’s first and only authentic links golf resort.  Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the picturesque town of Inverness, the Cabot Links course represents a dramatic departure from the typical golf excursion.  With six holes playing directly alongside the water and every hole offering an ocean view, Cabot Links is where traditional linksland golf comes to life against the spectacular Nova Scotia landscape.

The Cabot Cliffs course, designed by the decorated team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, is the newest addition to Cabot.  Exquisitely carved out of the breathtaking Cape Breton landscape, with postcard worthy panoramas vying for your attention and every hole calling out to the sea, this is linksland golf at its best.  Built by dreamers, for dreamers.  The official Grand Opening is slated for June of 2016 but with preview play in 2015 it has already proven it provides an incredible golf experience, through coastal dunes and high atop the ocean-side cliffs.  Cabot Cliffs made its debut in the Golf Digest World Top 100 Courses at #19.

Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs are walking-only courses, a style of play that heightens the experience of the game, connecting the golfer with the landscape and inviting creativity into every shot.

 Golf :

Nowhere is the dynamic relationship between golfer and environment more closely knit than on a true links course. To walk beside the ocean with a brisk breeze on your cheek and firm, sandy turf beneath your feet is to experience golf not only as it was hundreds of years ago but arguably as it should be today – a simple, beguiling game in need of no embellishment. Designed to be walked and intended to be played with a caddie, whose knowledge of the course’s intricacies  and history will make for an enriching round, links courses call to all five senses.

Not only does walking pay homage to the game’s humble beginnings overseas, it allows for an immersive experience that simply cannot be matched in a power cart. Walking a links course allows the golfer to think strategically, and embrace the elements every step of the way. Truly immersed and surrounded by Cape Breton’s beauty, you’ll be inspired to be creative and challenged to reach further. Some call it tradition; others call it minimalism. we call it simply Golf, the Cabot Way. 

Cabot Links

Set against a picturesque landscape that pits the poetry of a perfect swing, this is golf as it was meant to be. It is a place that speaks to golf’s elemental and undeniable truth: that to truly play linksland golf is to experience the game in its most visceral sense.

Bold. Majestic. Captivating. Inspiring.

Never is the game of golf more appealing than when a course is set in a rugged, oceanfront landscape, on linksland running firm and fast. This is Cabot Links, Canada’s only authentic links. This is Cabot Links, where the holes spread out between the sea and the village of Inverness. This is Cabot Links, where every hole offers an ocean view and where five holes play directly adjacent to the beach.
