Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: The Lakes Golf Club at Ben Eoin offers dramatic elevation changes and spectacular views of the beautiful Bras d’Or Lakes. Conveniently located just 15 minutes west of Sydney on Route 4, The Lakes offers remarkable vistas combined with the latest technology in golf course construction. “The Lakes presents the golfer with eighteen distinct postcard views. Each hole has its own special look. Consequently, the golfer will play with an expectation of what lies ahead or around the next bend. This diversity is a product of both the design and the setting: rock outcrops, long mystical views, crashing streams, grassy meadows and charming golf holes all combine to make golf at The Lakes both exciting and rewarding,” explains course architect Graham Cooke.

If you have a golf Bucket List this course should be on it. The fairways are particularly well defined; beautiful to observe from the tee, plush to hit from. I love courses with elevation; they give interesting fun shots and fine views. This one has both in abundance. They can bulldoze as much lowland dirt as they want in South Carolina or Florida, they can't reproduce the hundreds of feet of varied elevations found here, nor a view of the Bras d'Or Lake. Service is very friendly and welcoming. An outstanding golf experience.

I have had the privilege of playing every course on Cape Breton Island, besides the new Cabot Links, and the Lakes is definitely #1. The course is very well designed, with each tee box offering a completely different look and challenge for each hole and for each skill level of golfer. The pro shop staff are top notch and are always willing to go out of the way to ensure your needs are met. From new purchases at competitive prices to equipment repairs they can really do it all. I would recommend this beautiful course to anyone travelling or living in the Cape Breton area.

We were just finishing up a golf vacation tour of Cape Breton. The Lakes was a fine way to finish up. The course was in fine shape and the people from the starter to all those we encountered on the course very very friendly and knowledgeable. We will be back!!

12 August 2013, played this beautiful course and was very pleased. Fairways and greens were in excellent condition, the rough was challenging and the views were spectacular. I would return to this course in a heartbeat and plan on doing just in September.
