Cabot looking to build new golf course in West Mabou
Cabot is looking at building another golf course on Cape Breton Island.
This time in West Mabou.
According to a document obtained by CBFM, the new course would fall within the boundaries of the West Mabou Beach Provincial Park.
The document says Cabot's goals align with the goals of Nova Scotia’s provincial park system, which are to provide opportunities for outdoor recreational pursuits; to preserve elements of the natural environment; and to provide residents and visitors with opportunities to discover, experience, and enjoy our province’s distinctive natural resources.
Cabot intends to apply for a Crown land lease with the Province of Nova Scotia.
This comprehensive process includes the submission of a detailed development plan which will address social, technical, environmental, and economic considerations.
If the project goes ahead, Cabot plans to support community groups in the local area.
Mabou and District Community and Development Association would receive $50,000 per year
Mabou Athletic Commision (Mabou Arena) would receive $30,000 per year
West Mabou Development Association would receive $20,000 per year
Strathspey Performing Arts Centre would receive $12,500 per year
Mabou Gaelic and Historical Society would receive $12,500 per year
Cabot Cape Breton says the West Mabou course would be 18 holes and there are no plans to build accommodations at this location.
The only buildings would be a small office and club house.
Cabot currently owns three of the top golf courses in the world.
Including one in the top 10 and that course is located just outside of Inverness, Cape Breton.
There’s no timeline on when this project will start and that will depend on many factors, starting with the approval of a Crown land lease with the Province of Nova Scotia.
