Golf Australia Express : January 2013
the Gulf of St Lawrence with a blind tee shot to a fairway running left to right against the slope of the land. And with the green sloping from the front to back, a traditional links ‘runner’ approach is the best way to play your second shot. This is golf as it was first played all those years ago in Scotland. While the first is a fairly tame starter, the finishing hole is incredibly challenging. At 475-yards from the back tee and rated the second most difficult on the course, the 18th is a long par-4 with plenty of trouble to avoid from start to finish.

There are four types of rooms available and in-house guests can enjoy some of the finest dining to be had on Cape Breton at the Panorama Restaurant and Cabot Bar. The restaurant exudes a chic minimalist feel, with floor‐to‐ceiling windows making sure you don’t miss out on the spectacular views for even a moment. On the menu is local seafood, Cabot Links is a throwback to the genuine links courses of Scotland. It can throw up a pretty spectacular sunset, too. DREAM the DREAM the
