While The Lakes Golf Club is immersed in the beautiful surroundings of Ben Eoin, the highlight of the course for me is without question the tee shot on the downhill, par four sixth hole. With an everlasting view of the Bras d’Or, the setting is one of the best in Canada if not the entire world of golf. Nestled close to the spectacular Bras d’Or and a short drive south of Sydney is The Lakes Golf Club, a perfect mix of all things Cape Breton. The Lakes offers an incredible view of one of Canada’s most beautiful places from a challenging, but equally playable course, and is a short drive from the Celtic hospitality you’ll find on the streets of Sydney.
