Nice to see there will be lots of golf action when the PGA Tour Canada rolls into town September 2-8, at The Lakes Golf Club for the Celtic Classic. I know my week long Cape Breton golf adventure last summer was simple amazing, can't say enough great things about The Lakes Golf Club, LePortage Golf Club, Highlands Links and of course Cabot Links which I ended up playing twice.
