Golf is remarkable in the way it brings together people from different cultures and climates, uniting them for a period of time in mission and experience while remaining an entirely individualistic pursuit. It is social and solitary, as all good travel is, and in this regard is also a passport, a ticket. Golf is the metaphorical vehicle that takes us places and inspires us to see what lies beyond.
Few understand this nuance as well as Mike Keiser and Ben Cowan-Dewar, the partnership behind the Cabot development team. Keiser, who founded Bandon Dunes Resort in the late 1990s, teamed with Cowan-Dewar to open Cabot Links in 2011 on Cape Breton Island in Canada, on a sublime site overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence, then added Cabot Cliffs in 2015, and have since added a 10-hole short course called The Nest. More recently they expanded into the Caribbean with Cabot Saint Lucia, a golf and real estate development that commenced construction early in 2020.
Now they announce their latest venture, Cabot Revelstoke, a four-season resort in the mountains of eastern British Columbia.
