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, 19 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. Cabot Cliffs is designed by the legendary team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw. It provides an incredible golf experience, through coastal dunes and high atop the ocean-side cliffs.

Property Setting

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 Gulf of St. Lawrence, surrounded by sandy dunes, rolling hills and wide green spaces.

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.

Golf

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.
