Sneak Peek: Nova Scotia's Stunning Cabot Cliffs \nCabot Cliffs in Nova Scotia will open for public play in 2016, but we got a sneak peek of the Coore/Crenshaw design in October.\nAfter a relatively tame opener, the Cliffs course gets moving with Ben Crenshaw's favorite hole on the property. With a wide fairway, the hole requires you to consider the angle of attack for your second shot from the tee box. The shot here is from behind the green. -- Patrick Koenig\nHere's the view from the 7th fairway looking back onto the 2nd hole. Sometimes it pays to turn around and take in the entire scene. -- P.K.\nNobody should ever visit this huge, gnarly bunker, but Ashley did, and she escaped easily and photogenically. --P.K.\nThe short par-3 9th hole requires precision and poise. -- P.K.\nThe par-5 10th hole sits right along the water, and it forces golfers to carry gorse and bunkers as they approach the green. Patrick fell victim to one of those bunkers. -- Ashley Mayo\nThe 12th hole is a long par 3 that provides plenty of challenges for those missing the green. Here we see a group of eager scramblers headed toward the green to save par. Unfortunately, none of us met the task. -- P.K.\nThe tee signs at Cabot Cliffs are simple and to the point. --P.K.\nThe 15th hole kicks off four outstanding finishing holes. If you miss the more attractive option of the double fairway off of the tee, you'll be faced with shots like this. --P.K.\nThe word "epic" doesn't fully describe the par-3 16th hole. Any shot short, long or right here will plummet down the cliffside to a watery death. Our group had some great pars and some narrow misses for birdie. This is a golf hole you will never forget. -- P.K.\nHere I am teeing off on the most beautiful hole at Cabot Cliffs. -- A.M.\nLuckily, Jeff found the sand and not the ocean here. An even better bonus was having Ashley on hand to capture the action with her GoPro. -- P.K.\nAnd here's how that GoPro shot I took turned out. You really can't take a bad photo at Cabot Cliffs. -- A.M.\nHave I mentioned that you won't want to put down the camera when you're on the 16th hole? -- P.K.\nThe walk from the 16th green to the 17th tee is stunning. The 17th hole is a driveable par 4 that runs along a cliff. Since it curves from left to right and the green drops down below the level of the tee box, you'll never see where your tee shot ends up. -- A.M.\nAs you approach the 17th green you can clearly see the par-5 18th hole in the distance. It meanders down the oceanside cliffs. -- P.K.\nThese two bunkers that surround the green on the par-4 17th catch a lot of drives. -- A.M.\nThe waves that crash into this cliff by the 17th green are so loud they're impossible to ignore. -- A.M. \nCabot Cliffs' finishing hole, a short par 5, offers a real chance to close out your round with a birdie. But a small bit of the Atlantic Ocean that juts into the fairway catches errant approach shots. The entire course, from the back tees, measures 6,765 yards. -- A.M.
