Nowhere is the dynamic relationship between golfer and environment more closely knit than on a true links course. To walk beside the ocean with a brisk breeze on your cheek and firm, sandy turf beneath your feet is to experience golf not only as it was hundreds of years ago but arguably as it should be today – a simple, beguiling game in need of no embellishment. Designed to be walked and intended to be played with a caddie, whose knowledge of the course’s intricacies and history will make for an enriching round, links courses call to all five senses.
Not only does walking pay homage to the game’s humble beginnings overseas, it allows for an immersive experience that simply cannot be matched in a power cart. Walking a links course allows the golfer to think strategically, and embrace the elements every step of the way. Truly immersed and surrounded by Cape Breton’s beauty, you’ll be inspired to be creative and challenged to reach further.
