    Any difference between the iBlade and the S55 (what the iBlade is meant to replace, I believe – if the iSeries was to replace the i25)? I’m guessing other than the subjective element, we can expect much the same given that equipment in the last while has been quite good and matches the ball technology well already.

    Is the AP2 more comparable to the i blade or i series?

    Mark, were they standard lofts of 29 and 30.5Âş respectively?

    Weird that one was blue dot and one red. Did the lie angles not affect your ball flight? Also happy that golfers can now play better looking clubs with similar forgiveness.

      No because I understand lie. I would game the red dot if I was playing them ????

        Any idea why Ping traditionally sends “blue dot” clubs for fitting? I get that it’s 0.75 degrees upright, which is something other than standard. But wouldn’t you think you’d get a better sole reading on a standard “black dot” model? It just seems weird to me

You went to play, now you want to stay: Homes near Cabot Links & Cliffs

Published

on

At some point, we’ve all had that moment during a vacation where we look around and think to ourselves, “Instead of visiting, why don’t we just move here?” It always sounds a little crazy in the moment, but really, what’s stopping you?

Like many, I have done this myself, and it leads me down a rabbit hole of golf destination real estate to places all over North America where you get world-class golf minutes from home.

So whether you’re a big spender or looking to downsize and find a cozy hideaway, these homes near Cabot Links & Cliffs have it all.

Homes near Cabot Links & Cliffs

Inverness, Nova Scotia

Steps away

$1,495,000 – 12 Mine Road Inverness MLS Number: 202011562

Location, location, location!

This is currently the most expensive house in Inverness NS, and for good reason. It’s steps away from Cabot Links and overlooks the resort. It’s over 2,600 square feet of beautiful open concept living, and with a local address, you get a discount on tee times at the course, although with its growing popularity, you aren’t guaranteed times like if you stay on the actual property.

Who wouldn’t want to wake up to this view every day? Listing: 12 Mine Road – Realtor

Just up the road

$980,000 – 30 Broad Cove Road Inverness, MLS Number: 202010717

If the first one seems a bit crazy, this next one might be right up your alley.

This 4,000 square foot home, is only minutes from Cabot Link and Cliffs and has amazing views that overlook the Gulf of St. Lawrence. It has everything you could want including a large chef’s kitchen and enough room to host friends and family.

Just you and the ocean

$394,000 – 6 Bayberry Road, Port Hood, MLS Number: 202015994

If you like golf but want a little more separation from the Cabot golf resort, less than 20 miles down the road is Port Hood, another quiet seaside town filled with quaint shops and endless views of the ocean.

You can wake up every morning to the sounds of the ocean and the smell of sea air, and when you want to play golf at a top 50 course in the world, you just need to make a relaxing drive along the water to get there—heck, if you are so inclined, and happen to have a boat, you can go almost door to door that way too!

Golf instruction went from, ‘stable-don’t move your legs’ to ‘it’s okay to move your hips in the backswing’ because golf is not worth getting hurt over; to what, are you kidding me, we should have just allowed the legs to be used in the first place like they are supposed to. Just watch Ben Hogan hitting a pitch shot full body with no restrictions tells you that we are right.
