Cape Breton & Inverness
Inverness is a rural community on the coast of glorious Cape Breton Island. Surrounded by grassy hills and bordering the ocean, the town is known for its rich culture, history, and hometown hospitality. Trail hiking, deep-sea fishing, whale watching, swimming at Inverness Beach, and golfing are just some of the outdoor recreational activities located nearby.
From endless, rolling seaside dunes to spectacular panoramas, Cabot was designed to entice and inspire you at each and every turn. 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 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.
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.
