My favorite golf course in Canada

Cape Breton Island is rapidly developing and being recognized as a golfer’s haven.
 

When Cabot Links opened almost two years ago, the “buzz” in the golf world was intense. Cabot Links is truly a wonderful links course and fun to play. Like other great links courses Cabot Links is hard and fast, all the while taking imaginative shots to fully embrace the experience.

The second course at Cabot Links, named Cabot Cliffs, opens for play in 2016 and based upon my visit last August, this Crenshaw/Coore design will very possibly upstage its older neighbor.

In summary, my favorite course in Canada is Cabot Links but that may change in 2016!
