Cabot Cliffs

18 Cabot Lane

902-258-4653



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. A chance to follow in the legendary footsteps of course designers Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw.  From cliff to cliff and across rolling sand dunes, experience the game in its most visceral sense: with a stiff coastal wind at your back and a sense of purpose in your swing.  

Ranked 9th in the world by Golf Digest’s World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses and believed to be Canada’s Best Modern Golf Course by Golf Week Magazine, Cabot Cliffs alongside its sister course Cabot Links, has transformed Cape Breton Island into one of North America’s most noteworthy golf destinations. 

Cabot Cliffs is a walking-only course, a style of play that heightens the experience of the game, connecting the golfer with the landscape and inviting creativity into every shot.  Of course, exceptions can be made – and carts provided – for those of our guests with medical limitations.  In addition, experienced caddies are ready to provide helpful advice on everything from shot selection to the course’s various topographical nuances.

“Midway through my maiden round at Cabot Cliffs, strung along ocean bluffs above the town of Inverness, Nova Scotia, I became overwhelmed by an emotion best described as giddy. (…)The sense of awe and discovery was so intense. (…)By round’s end, I’d lost all objectivity. This is the second coming of Cypress Point, which in my mind was previously unmatched in its beauty, variety and thrills.” – Ron Whitten, Golf Digest
