Nova Scotia's Cabot Links
Creating a new links course in Canada's Nova Scotia
January 31, 2011
Cabot Links is located in the town of Inverness on the west coast of Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia.
Bandon Dunes developer, Mike Keiser, partnered with Ben Cowan-Dewar to create Cabot Links.
Most of the holes border the warm Gulf of St. Lawrence.
Workers carve out a bunker.
Cabot Links is a walking course.
Wide, undulating fairways are featured.
The climate promises firm and fast conditions.
Architect Rod Whitman has designed a links course that takes advantage of the natural topography.
The Gulf of St. Lawrence can be seen from most holes.
Eight holes will play directly along the beach.
Cabot Links will play just under 7,000 yards with a par of 71.
