Parks Canada

For over a decade, Parks Canada has been committed to presenting an environmentally friendly, world-calibre golf experience at Highlands Links. This dedication to ecological integrity has won the course many new friends and supporters from around the world. Most notably, Highlands Links became the first course in Atlantic Canada to win the designation of “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” by the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System of Canada. When Highlands Links' rich golf heritage is combined with Parks Canada's high standards of ecological protection and its commitment to preserving the natural environment of northern Cape Breton, the result is a unique experience for golfers from around the world.
