Cabot Cliffs is the sister course of Cabot Links and part of the Cabot Cape Breton resort. It was built in 2015 along the oceanfront bluffs near Inverness, Nova Scotia. Contrary to the beachfront dunes of Cabot Links, Cabot Cliffs sits at a higher elevation on dramatic clifftops overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence and Northumberland Strait. The panoramic views from the clifftop course are unmatched, drawing players from around the world to golf at this iconic location. The golf course design was a combined effort of golf architects Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, whose two styles were brought together to create what is now one of the top courses in all of Canada, and the world. Cabot Cliffs has been ranked 9th in the world by Golf Digest and also received the top spot as the best modern course in Canada from Golfweek.
The course features six par 3s, six par 4s, and six par 5s, stretching across approximately 6385 yards. It’s a walking-only course (unless you have special circumstances), enabling players to really take in the landscape and vistas as they navigate the course. The greens are quite large, with generous fairways that make the course enjoyable for all skill levels. The holes get consistently more impressive, with the 16th hole being one of the most famous golf holes in the entire world. Beyond the course itself, you’ll find accommodation at the resort with oceanfront rooms at Cabot Links Lodge, golf villas cliff-side residences. Cabot Cliffs also has three dining facilities on-site, including the Panorama Restaurant, Whit’s Public House, and Cabot Bar.
