Fairway Stevie’s World Of Golf: Cape Breton Golf

Don’t have the time or budget to fly all the way to Scotland to golf?  Well, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia is within a couple of hours flight for anyone in Eastern North America and the island boasts a number of world class golf courses, not the least of which is Highlands Links, the Stanley Thompson designed classic ranked in the world’s Top 100.  In 2011, Cabot Links will open for limited play.  Sandwiched between the town of Inverness and the sea, the course is already being touted as the world’s next great links course.  A recent trip to Cape Breton introduced us to a little of what the island has to offer.

  • Fairway Stevie:

    Good stuff, I watched your Cape Breton and Myrtle Beach videos with much enjoyment and nostalgia kicking in. But a guy has to do other stuff so I will come back later.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Good stuff Fairway Stevie:

    Highlands is still in my top 3 world-wide courses, can’t wait ot get back.
    The only thing missing was service, has that improved? We’d walk down from the lodge, catch a cart key, load our hooks and go to the first tee – no problem (save a tip) but some might expect more. We found Crowbush at PEI similar the first round but once you become “regulars” it improved. HOWEVER, the service was outstanding at Bedeck (Bell Bay).
