Before You Book

Before You Book

We are so happy you have decided to stay and play with us! However, there are just a few things to consider before finalizing your golf getaway here at Cabot Links. Please read the info below before booking:

Caddies

Caddies at Cabot are self-employed.  We will certainly do our utmost to accommodate your caddie requests but cannot guarantee availability as there is a very high demand for our caddie service. In order to maximize your chance of securing a caddie for your round, we recommend booking your caddie at the same time you book your round and lodging.

We offer A caddies and B caddies. While A caddies carry your bag and provide assistance with alignment, club selection, yardages, pin placement and putting, B caddies only carry your bag. Our A caddies cost $60 + gratuity per round and B caddies cost $45 + gratuity per round.

We also offer the option of taking a forecaddie for your group. Forecaddies will not tend to an individual golfers clubs, but will instead provide course knowledge for the entire group. Forecaddies cost $80 + gratuity per round.

Walking Golf

Both our courses here at Cabot Links are walking-only courses. It’s how the game was played hundreds of years ago in the sport’s humble beginnings and it’s the best way to get the true links golf experience. Feeling the turf under your feet as you walk towards your ball, thinking about your next shot and taking in the coastal vistas is an experience that cannot be matched in a power cart. Its golf the way it’s meant to be played.

Medical carts

If you require a cart for medical reasons, we do have a few on hand – just be sure to book the cart well in advance as we have a limited number of carts available (booking the cart at the same time you book your round and lodging is ideal).  A medical certificate is required and a caddie must drive the cart.

Practice Range & Shuttle Service

Our practice range is located at Cabot Cliffs, which is about a 5-minute drive from the lodge. We offer a complimentary shuttle service to and from Cabot Cliffs every 15 minutes of every day for your convenience. If you would like to visit the practice range before a round at Cabot Links, please factor in the extra few minutes it will take to get to and from.

Online Booking

If you are booking online, we strongly recommend booking your golf and lodging at the same time. Since both our lodge and courses are very busy, if you book lodging and golf separately the course could fill up on the days you are staying which could lead to you not getting the tee times you are hoping for. The sooner you book the better!

Cancellation Policy

While we know you won’t want to cancel, in the unfortunate event that you must, our policy allows non-resort guests to cancel 72 hours prior to a tee time without penalty. Resort guests booked to stay with us at the lodge have up to 24 hours prior to their scheduled tee time to cancel without fee. The penalty for late cancellation is 100% of the golf rate as scheduled.

Golfers who have booked a caddie must cancel 24 hours in advance or they will be charged the full caddie rate.

Weather Cancellation Policy

The course only shuts down in the event of lightening. While we won’t refund a round due to rainy weather as playing with the elements is a big part of Links Golf, we will try our best to accommodate by rearranging tee times on the day.

You will only hear from us once a month. (We will not share your email address with anybody –that’s a promise!)
