While not as visually stunning as its sister, Cabot Cliffs, this is still a very fine course with many wonderful holes probably more pleasing to the eye of a golf traditionalist. There is a surprising variety of holes with the "Harbor" hole one of the...More

Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs are two of the best courses in Canada without question. If you're traveling they have nice rental clubs you can use.

The course itself is beautiful. They are trying to make this a high end destination with a true links experience. Unfortunately they fail terribly with the high end experience. The cost of a round of golf is definitely on the high end, but the experience...More

Don’t hesitate...get here quick before the world discovers these two gems (links and cliffs). Pricey but compared to playing top US or European tracks, it’s well worth it.

Came here for the courses and wasn’t disappointed! Thought Cabot Cliffs was by far the better course. Cabot Links was good but to many areas that you couldn’t recover from. And I broke 90 on both.

My boyfriend is the golfer and he LOVED this course. I walked the course and did some photography and thought it was extremely beautiful. We did 18 holes and took about 4.5 hours. Notes from a golfer: The range is a 10 minute shuttle ride...More

The links course is very doable for beginners. There is one hole that requires a first shot of over 150 yards. That may require simply acknowledging and taking a drop! Slow play is always frustrating for some golfers... More
