Cabot Links features 36 holes of exhilarating links golf and one of the best experiences in the country.  With two acclaimed courses, 72 rooms of award-winning accommodation at Cabot Links Lodge, fourteen Golf Villas and exquisite dining in our 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. Lauded as a golfer’s paradise, the Rod Whitman designed Cabot Links course incorporates the rugged Nova Scotia landscape – dramatic seaside vistas with undulating terrain – and sandy soil.  Our newest addition, Cabot Cliffs, is designed by the legendary team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw.  The official opening is slated for June of 2016 and promises to provide an incredible golf experience, through coastal dunes and high atop the ocean-side Cliffs.

Cabot Cliffs was recently awarded the 19th spot on Golf Digest’s 100 Greatest Courses list.  Cabot Links was ranked 42nd in the World’s 100 Great Golf Courses by Golf Digest in 2014 and the Cabot Links Lodge has received the award for “Best Overall Architecture” in the EnRoute Magazine Hotel Design Awards.


Situated on the site of a former coal mine, Cabot Links is located in Inverness, on the west coast of Cape Breton Island. The resort sprawls along the rugged shorelines of the St. Lawrence, surrounded by sandy dunes, rolling hills and wide green spaces.


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 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.

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.

The Cabot Links Lodge offers 72 rooms, all affording breathtaking views through floor-to-ceiling windows, with both the links and the ocean competing for your attention.  Designed by award-winning Nova Scotia architect, Susan Fitzgerald and celebrated interior designer, Alexandra Angle, the Lodge is inspired by its surroundings. The building incorporates local materials, such as cedar and heavy timber, which combined with a timeless and modern aesthetic are the epitome of low key luxury.

Overlooking the lush greens and majestic ocean views of Cabot Links, the 2-bedroom or 4-bedroom Golf Villas, designed by award-winning architect Omar Gandhi, feature a fully custom kitchen with premium appliances and a modern, open design in addition to a private deck with outdoor fireplace.

The Lodge and the Golf Villas are located in close proximity to Cabot Bar and Panorama Restaurant, fanning south to border the putting green and a few steps down from the Cabot Public House.
