Dalgleish says newest addition to Nova Scotia's scenic wonderland makes for six "really solid" courses in the region.
WILMINGTON, NC (April 14, 2012) - Since 1984, PerryGolf has developed a reputation as a leading golf tour operator providing the most memorable golf experiences available around the world. The newest addition to the PerryGolf portfolio of golf destinations is Cape Breton Island in the Canadian Maritimes. Located within two hours from northeastern US gateway cities, Halifax serves as the most convenient airport for visiting Cape Breton in Nova Scotia.
Cape Breton has long hosted Highland Links which is a fixture in the Top 100 Golf Courses in the World (GOLF Magazine) but the upcoming addition of Cabot Links is an addition which will certainly put Cape Breton on every golfers "bucket list".
Cabot Links is the brainchild of Ben Cowan-Dewer and Mike Keiser. Importantly Mike Keiser created the remarkably successful Bandon Dunes resort on the Oregon coastline which twelve years ago was as undeveloped as Inverness, home of Cabot Links is today. The key similarity is the quality of the environment to build a truly outstanding golf course, and Mike believes they have achieved that at Cabot Links.
Golf on Cape Breton is far from than a two horse town as a number of courses have been built in recent years that offer a wide range of golf and lifestyle experiences; The Lakes and Bell Bay which both overlook Bras d'Or Lake in the middle of the island are two great tests of golf in magnificent settings. Dundee Resort on the southern end of the lake is targeting the family gathering and Le Portage in Chéticamp provides a unique ambience given its location in an Arcadian town with charming French influence.
PerryGolf co-founders Colin and Gordon Dalgleish visited Cape Breton Island recently to vet the golf courses and hotels that shall be used for this program. "One of the many great attributes of Cape Breton from a golfer's perspective is both the quality of the golf courses, the genuine welcome of the courses and hotels and the lobster or the wonder seafood of your choice." says Gordon Dalgleish, president of PerryGolf. "There are six really solid layouts - 3 on coast, 3 on the lake - which set up nicely for long weekends. You'd want five nights to play them all which would also give you the unique pleasure of experiencing the Cabot Trail. Road warriors consider the 185 mile trail to be one of the most prized in the world."
"We see a Cape Breton that will only grow in stature as golf destination. It's attractively priced and very close to a lot of well-travelled golfers on the east coast. It is not unreasonable to expect Cape Breton will have two courses in the World Top 100 list within a short period of time".
Suggested land programs are priced from $1,280.00, for golf, accommodations and rental car.
