The Road Ahead

Posted in

As we wind down this wonderful first full season at Cabot Links, we also look to the near future with anticipation for the many new and exciting things to come.

Most importantly, construction is moving swiftly on the cliffs of the Atlantic a few kilometers from Inverness - the site of Cabot’s second course! The terrain is taking shape and the green of grass has started to appear on the ground. Acclaimed golf architect Bill Coore (who, along with Ben Crenshaw, is designing Cabot Cliffs) said recently about Cabot Cliffs “the greatest curse in life is extreme potential”. We think his statement is captured in this shot of the 16th hole of Cabot Cliffs just growing in. We are fortunate to have Bill and Ben at the helm of such a promising project.

We look forward to updating you on the progress and we will be sure to post more photos in the coming months, as enthusiasm builds for the newest addition to Cabot. We share photos (including sneak peeks!) on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter so be sure to follow us if you don't already!

World Top 100

Posted in

Being named among GOLF Magazine's Top 100 Courses in the World is an honour that everyone involved in a golf course dreams of. We are proud to be part of this list and it really speaks to the amazing work of our entire team including our visionary architect Rod Whitman, and all of our extraordinary Cabot staff. We hope this means more people come to Nova Scotia to experience the product, which we believe in so strongly.

Five Things You Should Know About Inverness Beach

Beach season has arrived in Inverness, Nova Scotia and when we’re not hitting the links, you can find us lounging in the sun on Inverness Beach along with many other residents of Cape Breton Island. Below is a list of the top five things you should know about the beautiful Inverness beach!

Posted in

1.  It’s home to the warmest waters north of the Carolinas

With the average ocean temperature hovering around 20 degrees Celsius (68°F), Inverness Beach is home to the warmest ocean waters north of the Carolinas (and that includes Cape Cod and Long Island). This makes it very easy to spend an afternoon swimming and floating in the ocean without worrying about catching a chill. Jump in, the water is warm!

2.  It’s big!

Spanning over four kilometres, Inverness beach starts past the Southernmost tip of Cabot Links and runs along the coast all the way to the site of our second golf course, Cabot Cliffs. This means there’s enough space for a walk - or even a run - along the gorgeous oceanfront.

3. It’s less than 5 minutes from Cabot Links

When our guests ask us what they should do here when they’re not golfing, our first answer is always “head to the beach!” and many are surprised at just how easy that is. Getting to Inverness Beach from Cabot Links couldn’t be easier. You can make the short walk in just minutes or, if you’re stopping at the beach on your way back from touring the Cabot Trail, there is free public parking available right at the beach.

4. You can eat lunch right on the beach

With the Beach Cafe providing made-to-order lunches, snacks and nonalcoholic beverages at the edge of the beach, it’s easy to spend an entire day enjoying the sun and sand without ever having to leave. Stop by and say hi to the legendary Jim and Doug Ryan while you’re there!

5. A Lifeguard is on duty

In addition to being warm, expansive and close, Inverness Beach also boasts lifeguards so you can enjoy your time at the beach knowing that you’re swimming at one of the few lifeguarded beaches in the province of Nova Scotia. Our fully trained lifeguards are on duty from 10 AM-6 PM seven days a week.
