Cabot Links, Nova Scotia

This new course in remote eastern Nova Scotia spreads along the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and its holes run in all directions without losing sight of the sea. Lobster boats bob in a harbor beside the 11th green, reminders of the nearby fishing village.

Tip: Stop by the Red Shoe Pub, a family-run spot 15 minutes away, to warm up and listen to live Cape Breton fiddling, a famous violin style brought to Nova Scotia by Scottish immigrants. [cabotlinks.com]
