The Next Great Seaside Course

Golfers, let me introduce you to Canada’s answer to Pebble beach.
Scheduled to open for play June 29 in Nova Scotia is Cabot Links, a spectacular links layout on the western side of Cape Breton Island in the town of Inverness, a former mining village.
A wonderland of treeless terrain with undulating fairways, deep pot punkers and swales and stunning ocean views, Cabot Links is designed by Rod Whitman, a Canadian, who also fashioned the Sagebrush Golf Club in British Columbia.
A par 70, the course will measure 6,942 yards from the tips and play about 6,500 yards for the average amateur golfer.
It’s a walking only course with traditional caddying. Opening concurrent with Cabot Links is an on-site 48-unit lodge.
Cabot Links is being developed by Mike Keiser, the same gentlemen who brought us the wondrous Bandon Dunes in Oregon.
Getting there is no easy chore. You take a flight to Halifax and then it’s a about a 2 ½ hour drive to the course.
Once you arrive in Inverness, you can celebrate Cabot Links and the proximity of the Glenora single-malt whiskey distillery, which is located only seven minutes from the 18th green.
