Cabot Links has won the 2014 Visa Canada Traveller Experience of the Year Award.
The award, handed out Wednesday night by the Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC), marks another accomplishment for the two-year-old golf course in Inverness, NS.
“Tonight was an excellent showcase of the amazing travel experiences, products and people that Canada has to offer,” said Rob Taylor, president and interim CEO of TIAC.
The Canadian Tourism Awards are presented annually by TIAC to recognize success, leadership and innovation in Canada’s tourism industry, and to reward those people, places, organizations and events that have gone above and beyond to offer travellers superior tourism experiences in Canada.
“The entire Cabot Links team works exceptionally hard to create an unforgettable experience within the stunning Cape Bretonlandscape,” said Ben Cowan-Dewar, Managing Director, Cabot Links. “It is among the highest honours to be recognized by your peers and we are extremely grateful for this award from the Tourism Industry Association of Canada.”
Earlier in 2014, Golf Digest named Cabot Links one of the top 100 golf courses in the world.
SCOREGolf Magazine’s 2014 ranking of the top 100 courses in Canada had Cabot Links at number two.
Its new course, Cabot Cliffs, is set to open in 2015 and has already received much fanfare.
