Highlands Links

Highlands Links is one of Stanley Thompson's finest works. The 18 hole layout is a testament to the man's genius, capturing the wonderful land forms and increbile scenery of the Atlantic Ocean coastline and the Cape Breton Highlands National Park.

The Cape Breton Highlands Links , opened in 1941, is constantly ranked in the Top 10 Best Courses in Canada and in the Top 100 Best Courses in the World.

Over the past 2 years, Parks Canada, with its dedicated crew, under the guidance of Architect Ian Andrew, have been restoring the golf course to its original old glory. All bunkers have been completely restored to their original shapes and locations. Turf conditions have improved dramatically with a major tree removal program and the green sizes are back to the original shape.

"Now that a rejuvenation effort relying on Thompson's original drawings is nearly complete, its stock on the world getaway market will only rise. We love it." - Vic Williams, Publisher/Executive Editor, GolfGetaways Magazine, Fall 2012.

When you combine the scenery, the people and the golf course layout, you have yourself a recipe for "bragging rights". But we won't, we encourage you to glance at the photos above, read a little of the history and then make a move to book your tee time.
