Le Portage is just a wedge away from the Cabot Trail, the iconic tourist route which winds through its home community of Cheticamp. One of Cape Breton's most demanding tests of golf is set upon a plateau with majestic views of the mighty Atlantic, as well as,the mountains of the Cape Breton Highlands. Le Portage was built 'by the people, for the people' in the spirit of a unique co-op movement which made 300 years of settlement possible by Acadians in the region. Entering its 26th season, Le Portage is a tangible symbol of the Cheticamp community’s pride in its heritage of cooperation. Residents united their land and resources to build a true test of golf in the heart of Cape Breton’s Acadian region. Members continue their cooperation through a community-run board as well as annual course maintenance events.
With stunning scenery of the Cape Breton Highlands and the Atlantic Ocean, Le Portage’s sixty sand bunkers and strong prevailing winds (“Su-ete’s”) amount to a great test of golf in an area which seeks to become a home base for visitors planning to play Cabot Links (45 minutes’ drive) and Highlands Links (one hour). Along with local Acadian food and bilingual service, there is a national park, whale watching, fly fishing, live Celtic music, and a centre which celebrates Mi-careme masks.
