Two golf course developers named Mike Keiser and Ben Cowan – Dewar combined their talents to produce Cabot Cliffs and an elder sibling, Cabot Links. They chose designers Rod Whitman for Cabot Links, and the now-famous team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw designed Cabot Cliffs.  

I’ve discovered while writing these posts that golfers enjoy seeing images of beautiful courses. I’m with them!  This post exposes you to the newly-opened (July 1, 2015) Cabot cliffs golf course in northern Nova Scotia in Canada.  The breathtaking scenery is strikingly similar to the views found a continent away on the Monterey Penninsula.

Check out these visually stunning courses on the seaside and cliffs, north of Halifax, Nova Scotia’s capital city. Thanks to Joe Passov of GOLF Magazine for taking us on this beautiful journey.  Time to add this destination to my bucket list!

Cabot Cliffs co-developer Mike Keiser — he of Bandon Dunes fame — has a simple credo about building remote golf havens: “One course is a curiosity. Two courses is a destination.” Exhibit A? Witness what Keiser and Ben Cowan-Dewar have created in eastern Canada.

Cabot Cliffs opened on July 1, and Keiser and Cowan-Dewar have transformed a depressed coal mining region three-plus hours north of Nova Scotia’s capital of Halifax into a rich sanctuary of seaside golf. Their first course was the Rod Whitman–designed Cabot Links, which debuted at No. 82 in the world in Golf Magazine’s 2013 rankings. The developer duo drafted Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw to up the ante with the second course, and the design titans delivered in a big way.

Located a half-mile north of Cabot Links, Cabot Cliffs is also at water’s edge but is draped atop more dramatic terrain than its elder companion. At the north end of the property, the cliffs tower more than 100 feet above the Gulf of St. Lawrence, while at the south end dunes nestle close to the beach.
