Plan Your Golf Trip


True links golf, lively Celtic music, place names like Inverness and Ben Eoin, single malt whisky. You can be forgiven for thinking we were describing Scotland. There certainly are many similarities, in fact, thousands of Highland Scots emigrated here and brought with them their music and traditions. Including a love of golf. However, Cape Breton Island is right next door, not across a vast ocean. You can be on the ground in less than four hours from Toronto or New York. From Halifax, it's a quick flight to Sydney or a beautiful drive on the Trans Canada to the causeway that joins the Island to mainland Nova Scotia. Now, you can enjoy an Old World golf experience in North America.
