Cabot Cape Breton, Inverness, Nova Scotia
There is some great golf to be played in Nova Scotia, but nothing beats this vast resort on Cape Breton Island: two world‑renowned 18‑hole courses – Cabot Cliffs and Cabot Links – where golfers play amid rugged cliffs and sand dunes and tee off alongside the Atlantic Ocean. Designed “for dreamers” by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, Cabot Cliffs has been #1 on ScoreGolf’s ranking of the best public courses in Canada since it opened in 2015. (Cabot Links was #5 in 2020.) The Nest, a par‑3, 10‑hole routing from Rod Whitman and Dave Axland set high on Cabot Cliffs, opened this season – a perfect option for those seeking a shorter game.
The Links at Crowbush Cove, Morell, Prince Edward Island
Beloved by locals and visitors alike, this seaside PEI golf course is set amid the stunning north shore dunes on the grounds of the Rodd Crowbush Golf & Beach Club. Navigate your way through the course’s undulating fairways, nine water holes, eight dune holes and challenging greens as waves lap gently against the shore.
