Louisbourg Resort Golf & Spa

Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada

Faldo Design is to create an 18-hole Championship standard golf course and accompanying 18-hole Par Three course in Eastern Canada. The Championship Course, which will be named 'The Fortress', is to be the centrepiece of the Louisbourg Resort Golf & Spa, a multi-million dollar development on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia.

Faldo's thoughts:

"This is an impressively large and scenically very diverse site, so the process of designing and refining the layout has offered us some very interesting opportunities. We've incorporated the island's stunning Great Lake to challenging effect and with the mature, forested undulations of the terrain here and the dramatic marshland, this will certainly be a beautiful round of golf. But what this course will also offer is a real strategic quality, which will demand that a golfer digs deep and produces the very best their game has to offer. Whether they're a seasoned professional or a casual weekender, I hope that visitors to our course at Louisbourg will receive a golfing experience that will live long in their memories."
