Golf in the “New Scotland”™ – Cape Breton Nova Scotia
Nova Scotia means “New Scotland” and indeed the west coast of Scotland has seemingly been transported across the Atlantic to the amazing Cabot Links, a true links that sits right on the coast complete with its own Ailsa Craig standing guard offshore. The opening of Cabot Cliffs next door, an arguably even more spectacular Crenshaw/Coore masterpiece, has made the Cabot Trail on Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Island the Atlantic Coast’s answer to Oregon’s Bandon Dunes. The two great Cabot courses are just the beginning though. Stanley Thompson’s supreme, Scottishly-named Highlands Links has long been hidden up the Cape Breton Coast despite its long-standing reputation of being Canada’s #1 golf course. Highlands Links is hidden no longer though and Canada’s greatest modern-day architects, Thomas McBroom and Graham Cooke, have added their own magnificent venues to Cape Breton at Bell Bay and The Lakes. With distilleries, traditional pubs, and a uniquely Nova Scotian/Scottish/Celtic vibe pervading the region, Cape Breton Nova Scotia delivers a “new” Scotland golf experience that is a lot closer to home!
