The reputation of two premiere golf courses in Inverness continues to grow. A leading golf publication has placed both Cabot Cliffs and Cabot Links among the
Cabot Cliffs Golf Course
World’s top 100 golf courses. In its latest rankings, Golf Digest has listed Cabot Cliffs as 9th best in the world, up from 19th last year.
Cabot Links is ranked 43rd, up from 93rd spot in the 2017 ranking.
Cabot Links General Manager Andrew Alkenbrack says reaction to the latest rankings has been immediate, with congratulatory messages and additional bookings to the resort for the coming season.
Golf Digest says Cabot Cliffs offers a variety, ranging from sand dunes in its southernmost holes to ocean cliffs to the north and bits of pine-lined Scottish Highlands in between. The publication says Cabot Links is not a natural links, but it plays like one, with muted dunes, austere bunkering and gentle, generous greens
The NSLC located in Inverness will soon be replaced. Information obtained in a tender on the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation website suggests that they are seeking a new 2800 to 3500 square foot rental space to replace the existing location.
The Tender, which was issued on November 29th is set to close on January 4th. The store has been in it’s current location since the late 1960s.
There could be a third and possibly a fourth golf course built in the Inverness area. The owners of the Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs championship golf courses are
exploring additional developments.
Cabot Links General Manager Andrew Alkenbrack says one option under consideration is a Par 3 course. Alkenbrack says a Par 3 would compliment the two existing courses.
If all goes well, construction would begin on the Par 3 next year. Several course routings are being reviewed; including 12 and 14 holes of play.
Alkenbrack says it’s also contemplating another 18 hole championship course, but any possible construction of that is likely in the distant future.

A man in Inverness is facing a slew of charges after a search was conducted by the RCMP. On Thursday, members of the Inverness & Richmond RCMP Street Crime Enforcement Unit, and Inverness District RCMP searched a residence in St. Rose.
As a result, a 38 year old male from the area is facing multiple firearm and production of marijuana charges. The RCMP seized a quantity of marijuana and 5 ridles along with ammunition. The man is scheduled to appear in court this December.
There were a couple of nail biters in local ridings in yesterday’s provincial election.
The biggest surprise was the defeat of long-time Liberal incumbent Michel Samson, losing in a tight race in Cape Breton-Richmond to Alana Paon of the PC’s. Paon received 3,336 votes, just 20 more than Samson.
Guysborough-Eastern Shore-Tracadie MLA Lloyd Hines was re-elected by a thin margin, garnering 2,565 votes, compared to PC challenger Rob Wolf at 2,494.
Other local MLA’s also re-elected were Liberal Randy Delorey in Antigonish, along with Conservatives Allan MacMaster in Inverness, Tim Houston in Pictou East, Pat Dunn in Pictou Centre and Karla MacFarlane in Pictou West.
The two bear cubs who were at risk of being euthanized in Inverness County are safe now, and recovering. The mother had passed away, meaning the cubs were not receiving the care they needed, resulting in one cub being quite sick.
Bobby Morris is the Liberal candidate for Inverness, and was busy the night the fuzzy bears were discovered. Morris says that many steps had to be taken to ensure the cubs are safe moving forward:
Morris says he was in contact with Natural Resources while the bears were being relocated, and can confirm that they are doing better. It remains unclear, however, what the future will hold for the bears.
