    “The course shaping is complete and the fescue grass is now being planted at Canada's most anticipated new course, Cabot Links. Situated in the town of Inverness on the west coast of Cape Breton Island, N.S., this Scottish throwback--a public, walking-only design--provides ocean views of every hole, eight of which play directly along the warm waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, with a beach below separating land and sea. That sandy soil makes it a true links course-the only one of its kind in Canada.”
