The course is in excellent condition to support the Cape Breton Open this weekend. This is one of the best courses on the island with some of the best views of the Bras D' Or lakes. It's a must play if in Cape Breton!

The first time we played was after a rain and was soaked. The course needs a lot of work. There was no clubhouse, pro shop in a trailer and food in a halfway shack. Wouldn't go back.More

Our 10 year old son loves to golf but often professional courses don't allow young children. We were elated to learn that Bell Bay did! When we rented our vacation home in Baddeck it included two daily passes to golf: my husband and son went...More

The front 9 has some very scenic views, less so on the back 9. Nothing spectacular, but just very pleasant ocean views. The course is nothing memorable, but was in decent shape and not very difficult. Good start for our trip to Cabot Links. Clubhouse...More

Course layout was standard ant not that interesting. Fairways were not well maintained with plenty of fairway divots and no divot repair mixture available. Our golf cart was not charged and ran out of power on the 17th hole. Very annoying. Not interested in returning.More
