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.
