Nova Scotia translates to “New Scotland” which is your first indication of what’s in store when you visit and especially in Cape Breton, a seaside golf destination Canada’s northeast corner. Follow the Cabot Trail and you stumble upon true links golf, Scottish culture, and breathtaking views of the valleys and coast. With multiple highly ranked courses to play, Cape Breton delivers an authentic links golf experience with breathtaking cliff views and temperate coastal temperatures.
While a shirt and shorts may be suitable one day, you’ll need to pack strategically as most courses are exposed to coastal breezes and quickly changing weather fronts. Layers are key. Focus on versatility and layer-ability. Technical performance fabrics are key for base and secondary layers, while water and wind protection and breathability are required for outer layers.
