Cabot Golf

Nowhere is the dynamic relationship between golfer and environment more closely knit than on a true links course.

It is a rare experience to walk beside the ocean with a brisk breeze on your cheek and firm, sandy turf beneath your feet, experiencing 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.

Inverness is one of the only places where you can play links golf on two distinctive courses—that also happen to be two of Golf Digest’s World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.

As you walk the fairways and greens of Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs, immersed and surrounded by the beauty of Cape Breton, you may find yourself inspired, challenged to reach further, embracing the elements every step of the way.

Some call it tradition, others call it minimalism. We call it simply, “Golf, the Cabot way.”

Cabot Links

Set against a breathtaking landscape and designed by gifted Canadian golf course architect, Rod Whitman, this is golf as it was meant to be. A place that speaks to golf’s elemental and undeniable truth: that to truly play links golf is to experience the game in its most visceral sense.

Bold. Majestic. Captivating. Inspiring.

Cabot Cliffs

An 18-hole invitation to take the road less travelled, with the freedom of unfamiliar terrain beneath your feet and uncommon beauty as far as the eye can see. Designed by legendary course designers Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw. And carved out of the Cape Breton coastline, from high cliffs to rolling dunes.

Golf. Redefined. Reshaped. Reimagined.

“Canada’s first links course is a golf purist’s paradise.”

“Every hole has a possible wow factor overload. Every shot has the potential for excitement. There can be no better testament to a great course than the fact that you just want to play it again and again.”

– Bob Weeks, TSN

“I cannot recall being more exhilarated going from one hole to another.”

– Bradley S. Klein, Golfweek
