Our second season with Cape Breton Island approaches with Stanley Thompson’s masterpiece at Highlands Links fully restored to its original excellence. There is every expectation that World #98 (GOLF Magazine) will be rising in the rankings.
Last year’s newcomer and Canada’s only authentic links layout, Cabot Links, met every expectation to the point that co-owners Mike Keiser (Bandon Dunes) and Ben Cowan-Dewar have announced plans for a second course. Cabot Cliffs will be designed by Coore and Crenshaw. Keiser told Bill Coore during one of their recent site visits, “I think we’re on to something big here.” We couldn’t agree more particularly considering the availability of four more Cape Breton courses we can recommend highly; Dundee, Bell Bay, The Lakes and Le Portage.
