What an incredible venue! Although the weather didn't cooperate our first day (30-40 MPH winds, 50 degree F temperatures and rain), it was an outstanding experience at Cabot Links...one of the best golf courses I have ever played. I will include my comments regarding my second round at Cabot Cliffs here, as well (a much better day weather-wise!). Both courses... More

2 Magnificent golf courses by the folks who built Bandon Dunes. And similar to that fine facility. somehow the distant wild location makes this resort more attractive. The golf is wonderful - courses superb. When windy almost impossible. Great caddy system - you must walk.

I don't usually write reviews for 'attractions' and even less for golf courses, but please, please disregard any of the negative reviews here. Cabot Cliffs will get the slight nod, but honestly only slightly. The Links course may have less memorable holes than Cliffs, but is a beautifully crafted course that fits perfectly together from a routing perspective. The condition... More

I thought this course a real challenge and enjoyed its complexities. Beautiful and rugged. Suggest taking caddies.

We golfed Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs on Labour Day weekend. Stunning views with Links golf. The good is mouth watering at Cabot. Try the fish cakes and Lobster ravioli. First class golf course with a great staff.

Booked well ahead but no caddies available - on a course with so many blind shots a golf description bookjlet just doen't work. Greens were just sanded and they were like sand boxes. Tee boxes werwe so hard you could not get a tee into the... More

I play 40+ rounds a year to a 12 handicap and traveled with seven others ranging from 5-16 handicaps. We all had a blast. Cabot Links plays to only a 125 slope from the green tees (typically blue tees in the states--about 6400 yards) but don't be fooled. True links golf is just different, and particularly if the wind is... More

This course certainly lives up to all the raves you have read. It is not to be missed. It is the closest thing to an Irish/Scottish course that I have ever played. No wonder its rated #2 in Canada for courses you can play (public courses). A few holes are confusing so it might be worth it to take a... More

A must for any golfer. You don't find this calibre of golf course just anywhere. We have played links courses in Ireland and this is true links golf. I would recommend getting a caddy, if only to help direct you off the tee and on the fairway. There is not much colour differentiation between the fairway, rough or greens and... More
