After launching Preview Play on July 1, 2015, we sat down with Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw to talk course design, golf, and Cabot Cliffs.
Oh Canada, it’s been a good one!
1. Course designer and two time Masters Winner Ben Crenshaw proved he’s still got it, nailing the first tee shot of the day:
With the 2015 season underway, Cabot is buzzing with excitement as we welcome our guests, golfers, and a great deal of exciting changes. And with our newest addition, Cabot Cliffs, set to open in July, and the kickoff of our real estate program underway, “new and improved” is certainly a strong theme at Cabot.
Read on for a quick look at what's new for the 2015 season:
The wait is just about over for the highly anticipated new course, Cabot Cliffs. Opening July 1st, Cabot Cliffs will be welcoming golfers for preview play, with rates reflective of the preview conditions and 20-minute intervals for tee times.
Designed by architect Bill Coore and two-time Masters champion Ben Crenshaw, Cabot Cliffs showcases stunning vistas along Cape Breton’s rugged coastline. With accolades already pouring in from Golf Magazine, the Golf Channel, and SCOREGolf, we can’t wait to introduce you to what Sports Illustrated called “the most anticipated new course of 2015.”
When we’re not hitting the links, you’ll often find us lounging in the sun on Inverness Beach, along with many other residents of Cape Breton Island. If you’d like to join in the fun, check out our list of the top five things you should know about beautiful Inverness Beach!
Throughout the development of Cabot Links, I’ve had many roles, but one of the most enjoyable ones is photographing (and sharing through social media) the progress of Cabot evolving into the courses and resort it is today.
During this time, we’ve had the honour of hosting two of the greatest photographers in their respective fields. As an amateur and fan, I always find it amazing to see the pros at work!
David Scaletti (http://www.davidscaletti.com.au) has long been one of golf’s best photographers, and he was in from Australia to shoot Cabot. Here’s a little taste of one his best!
So, we are open! After a huge push by our team, it’s a wonderful feeling to see golfers out on the links.
