  • Very friendly staff and beautiful views and scenery. Lots of hills and valleys makes the course very interesting. Definitely a must-play golf course 
  • This course has the most amazing view points....at every single tee box and hole. You may find it destracting....Breathtaking ! What a wonderful place to spend the day. Challenging course too! :)
  • I played this course as a young man with my Dad. It was epic. Years ago it was on Shells Wonderful World of Golf.
  • Best scenic course in Atlantic Canada ! Great golf and wonderful service:)
  • well its apparent that when the union workers were maintaining the course it was in awesome condition now its just a good place to golf and should not even be in the top 20 in the country. Its a joke when outside agencies rate these courses because they get treated like kings for a positive and bias rating .The recent experience I had with the course was on August 1 2015 the greens on the front nine were in terrible condition the back nine were 100 percent better .Sand traps are in deplorable condition there is rocks bigger than a golf ball among plenty other rocks there is no signage to alert golfers in carts to stay within acceptable distance of the greens which most golfers should know I witnessed carts within 10 feet of the green. So if these conditions get u a rating of 3rd best course in Canada then maybe we should charge these people rating the courses green fees and no freebees to up the ratings In closing I would like to say I am a resident of cape Breton and for sheer cape Breton beauty people will play Higland Links course but I can guarantee cape Breton workers would take special care of this course so I say to the company running the show now we want our course back to first class status like it was before you took control and are now neglecting it.
  • Amazing setting but needs to be better maintained.
