We included this course as part of our trip to Dundee Golf Resort. This course is more expensive but clearly a couple of notches above Dundee. A difficult but fair layout. Conditioning was excellent , especially the greens. We played the whites where the slope...More

i played here in July 2018 and the course was in fantastic condition. Pro shop staff were very friendly and the food at the restaurant was good. If you're in Cape Breton, you should definite play The Lakes. Great value. Highly recommended.

Very slow service. Club sandwich miniature in size and lacking in taste. Chicken wings beyond being overcooked. Disappointing to say the least.
