  • Golfed Chabot Cliffs on August 21st - walked it on a beautiful warm day. Booked well ahead but no caddies available - on a course with so many blind shots a golf description bookjlet just doen't work....  read more »
  • I play 40+ rounds a year to a 12 handicap and traveled with seven others ranging from 5-16 handicaps. We all had a blast. Cabot Links plays to only a 125 slope from the green tees (typically blue tees...  read more »
  • This course certainly lives up to all the raves you have read. It is not to be missed. It is the closest thing to an Irish/Scottish course that I have ever played. No wonder its rated #2 in Canada for...  read more »
  • Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs simply put, are two phenomenal golf courses with some of the best views you will EVER get on the links. 15-18 at Cabot Cliffs is an unrivaled finishing group of holes, starting with 15, a par 5 down the hill with the green perched just short of the cliffs below. And 16, as has been well documented, is a short-mid iron over the cliffs, to a green that juts out towards the water, also perched on the cliffs. Depending on the tees you play (we played the tips), your tee box on 17 leaves you hitting a driver over a cliff on a driveable par 4. One of the few times I've been that nervous over a tee shot. And 18 is a fine finishing hole, with the cliffs the the water along your right side the entire length of the hole. If you have the good fortune to get here soon, because it won't always be this cheap to play it, but it will always be great
  • Do not, under any circumstances, listen to the 1 and 2 star reviewers. We had the same caddie issue, and I would still give this place 10 stars out of 5. It is an absolutely magical place. I walked off the course and thought to myself, If I never played golf again in my life, I'd be okay with that.
  • Cabot Links is a fine golf course, however I had a bad experience. I reserved an early Saturday tee time exactly two months in advance with a caddie. I had a tee time for 1:00 p.m. on Cabot Cliffs too. I check in and ask about my caddie and was told no caddie is available. You have to take a pull cart(golf rickshaw). I couldn't believe it. I took the shuttle to the Cliffs for the practice range and there were plenty of caddies there for a small outing. The other single reserved a caddie too and was told no caddie. Without a caddie the golf experience was diminished. We ended up hitting to wrong greens twice and did not have course knowledge on our first visit. Then there was our 5 hour round. The father/son in our foursome were very slow. At the turn the starter told us we had to finish in 2 hours and it did not happen. Because of slow play I only had 20 minutes to get to the Cliffs. I checked in and again no caddie only to walk outside and overhear that a caddie was available for another bag. No connection to their pro shop is evident. The courses are fine but could use some more maturing and filling in on some areas. Greens were good, speed is on the slow side with some bumpy. Make sure you get a caddie! Would you take a first trip to St. Andrews, Scotland and play without a caddie. Please fix this Cabot!
  • I'm new to the golfing world and finally found out how much fun and relaxing can be, it agree that it would be nice to have a driving range on the course but there is a private one 1.5km north of the resort and I believe the Cliffs has one in the making. I love both properties, breathtaking!🙂 Happy Employee
  • A must play. You'll be glad you did. You'll swear you're playing in Ireland or Scotland. The next day we played Cabot Cliffs. Unbelievable beauty. Easy to see why it would be ranked top 10 in the world. It's not a links course and it's much more friendly to play for never playing it before. With the links course a caddie is very beneficial, the cliffs, not needed as much. Bring your camera and stop to take it all in. You'll still play in 3 1/2 hours even with all the picture taking. In fact, I wish both rounds would have played a little slower than they did. It seemed over too quick.
