Accommodations & Venue

Host Golf Course

Cabot Links: 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. The first authentic links in Canada, and one of the world’s greatest courses. This is Cabot Links.

Host Golf Course

Cabot Cliffs: 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.

Built by dreamers for dreamers, and 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.
