GOLF & LEISURE 177 CABOT CLIFFS AND CABOT LINKS NOVA SCOTIA Few golf properties in the world can match the one-two knockout punch of Cabot Links Lodge on the Nova Scotia island of Cape Breton. Even before its official launch this northern spring, Cabot Cliffs had already been named the 19th best course in the world by Golf Digest, ahead of Royal Birkdale, Carnoustie and other international stalwarts. Meanwhile, its superb sister course, Cabot Links, came in at 93rd. Designed by Canadian Rod Whitman and launched in 2012, Cabot Links sprawls along a wind-buffeted shoreline that trails down into he dunes along the ocean and then back to higher ground near the main street of Inverness town. Even more spectacular is the blufftop setting of the aptly named Cabot Cliffs. No fewer than eight holes offer endless views of the Gulf of St Lawrence. The inland holes sweep through sculpted dunes and woodlands before returning to the sea. Absolutely unforgettable is the 16th, a par-3 chiselled into a towering jagged cliff. With golfers flocking to Inverness from around the world, golf has become as essential to life in this former hardscrabble mining town as it is in Scotland’s St Andrews.
