Golf at Cabot Cliffs
From Cabot Cape Breton:Exquisitely carved out of the breathtaking Cape Breton landscape, with postcard-worthy panoramas vying for your attention and rich, rolling fairways waiting to reward your creativity, this is linksland golf at its best. Lose yourself in a place that is off the beaten path and far from the expected. Cabot Cliffs is built by dreamers, for dreamers, as it’s designed by legendary course designers Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw. The most beautiful game on Earth, set against a backdrop only Mother Nature can provide. This is Cabot Cliffs.
Notable: The best golf course in Canada, undisputed. Ranked #1 course in Canada by SCOREGolf (2022), and ranked #11 on Golf Digest’s 100 Greats Golf Courses.
Designed by one of North America’s most renowned firms Coore & Crenshaw, Cabot Cliffs has been renowned since before it even opened. The anticipation was well deserved, as this course has been regarded as one of the world’s finest since it opened its doors in 2015.
This true links course occupies a diverse landscape, sitting atop the bluffs that overlook the Gulf of St Lawrence, with fairways that transition between woodland, wetland and meadowland areas. Somewhat unusually, but also adding to the playability and enjoyment, the layout is configured with six par threes, six par fours, and six par fives.
Hole 16 is the most notable hole on the course, but also perhaps one of the most notable holes in all of Canada. A par 3 to remember for all time, playing across the edge of the cliffs above the shoreline. Not to be outdone, the final 3 holes are regarded as one of the best 3 hole finishing stretches in golf.
Golf at Cabot Links
From Cabot Cape Breton: Never is the game of golf more appealing than when a course is set in a rugged, oceanfront landscape, on linksland running firm and fast. This is Cabot Links, where the holes spread out between the sea and the village of Inverness. This is Cabot Links—as designed by gifted Canadian golf course architect, Rod Whitman—where every hole offers an ocean view and where five holes play directly adjacent to the beach. This is the first authentic links in Canada, and one of the world’s greatest courses. This is Cabot Links.
Notable: The golf course that started it all for Cabot! Opened in 2012, Cabot Links was immediately heralded as a special course by golfing pundits from around the globe. Canada’s first true links course, Cabot Links is ranked #5 course in Canada by SCOREGolf (2022), and ranked #35 on Golf Digest’s 100 Greats Golf Courses.
Hole 14 is a notable hole for Links. Measuring in at 102 yards from the back markers, you’ll be playing downhill to an infinity green that’s totally exposed to the elements.

Halifax’s highest ranked course, this Thomas McBroom design will undoubtedly impress. Built in 2015, Brunello received immediate praise voted the 3rd Best New Golf Course in North America by Golf Digest. More recently, it was ranked #51 Public Course in Canada by SCOREGolf (2021). There is a strong visual appeal to the course with the light green colored bentgrass tees, fairways, and greens delivering a nice contrast to the dark green bluegrass rough, white sand bunkers, and earth toned stones.
Immaculate conditions, and a rugged design that might remind you of McBroom’s Muskoka designed golf courses, this golf course is beautiful and challenging, but beware, you will only score well here if you make smart decisions off every tee box. Shots that leave the fairway will likely result in a lost ball due to the thick foliage and challenging terrain that frame the holes. Highlight holes include the par three 2nd, played downhill across a canyon to a shallow, offset green and the par four 11th, rising gently to a green that tilts markedly from back to front.
Golf at Glen Arbour Golf Course
Expertly designed, pristine conditions and spectacular views await around every bend at this Graham Cooke designed, must-play. This pleasing parkland layout is beautiful and challenging, yet a playable test for golfers of all skill levels. And it is private, but we’ve got exclusive access!
No stranger to accolades, Glen Arbour was ranked #57 Public Course in Canada (back when it was a public course) by SCOREGolf in 2015. Since then, Glen Arbour has turned private but we do have exclusive access for our clientele.
The title Glen Arbour comes from the Scottish term for “vale of trees” and the 18 holes are laid out on heavily wooded terrain that features lakes, streams and several significant elevation changes during the course of a round.
Check-out, head to the airport, back to reality after an epic, once-in-a-lifetime trip!
