At Stanley Thompson’s “Mountains and Ocean” course, golfers stroll beside the Atlantic Ocean one moment (the 6th) before two holes later transitioning into the mountains. Set in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, Highland Links all adds up to an unforgettably diverse playing experience, capped by a superior set of Thompson greens. The course’s set of par-5s (Nos. 6, 7, 15 and 16) is rightly considered among the best in all of golf. Max fee: $130 (Photo: Courtesy Cape Breton Highlands Links)
