Top 8 Reasons to Visit Cabot this Fall

After an amazing summer season, fall is finally here! And while some of your may be wishing for summer to stay a little longer, we assure you, there is SO much to look forward to in a Cape Breton Fall. Epic Links golf, stunning vistas, fresh briny air, and incredible adventures make Cape Breton the ideal fall golf getaway. 

Here are some of the things we are most looking forward to this fall!

1. Fall Foliage

Cape Breton is a picturesque paradise any time of the year, but it is enhanced even further when the leaves change colours. The mountains become alive with colour, lining the winding coastal roads with brilliant orange, yellow, and red hues. The beauty of the leaves takes everything to the next level. Even your drive to and from the airport will become an excursion of its own. Just don’t forget your camera.

2. Celtic Colours

For nine days in October, Cape Breton is home to a unique celebration of music and culture, when Celtic Colours presents dozens of concerts, workshops, and community events across the island. This world-renowned festival sees international performers join local artists to showcase the colourful nature of Cape Breton and its people. The festival takes place from October 5 – 13, 2018.

5. RBC PGA Scramble Finals

We know we aren’t the only ones looking forward to fall golf, as we’ll be welcoming teams from all over Canada for the RBC PGA Scramble Finals taking place on Oct. 10th. Local and regional qualifiers will take place in every province across Canada, with it all coming down to the 4-day-long final event here at Cabot. Following last year’s final, which concluded with a nerve-racking four-foot par putt for the win, we can’t wait to see what drama is in store for this year’s event!
