Like King' s Bay Golf Club located just a few kilometers away, Canterbury Golf Club is one of Golf North's spectacular 9 hole courses. Located in Port Perry, Ontario, the course
winds its way through the Canterbury Commons subdivision, but does so in a way that disguises its somewhat "urban" location. Tree-lined and bermed fairways camouflage
homes that are nicely set back from the course. Needless to say, errant shots may infringe on private property and those are out-of-bounds.
Conditions on this course are impeccable! From tee to green, all grass is well-manicured and the bunkers are beautifully shaped and conditioned. The greens are all medium to
smallish in size with some slopes and undulations that increase the difficulty of this course - this is most noticeable on number 5 (a par 5 that plays to a small green with
protection all around).
There are three tee boxes with yardages of 2,196 yards, 1,996,yards and 1,823 yards. Water comes into play on 3 holes (#2, #6 and #7) and 31 sprawling bunkers dot the
fairways and protect the greens. Cart paths are partially paved and yardage markers are placed on the fairways at 100, 150 & 200 yards out on all par fours and fives. Color coded
flags indicate front/middle and back hole locations. Gas power carts are available but, although there are some small elevation changes at Canterbury, the course is very walkable.
On property is a small golf-shop and a licensed snack bar with patio offering a variety of warm and cold meals and snacks. While a practice green is available, there is no driving
range. Canterbury is a perfect course for an outing and course management specialize in organizing events and tournaments for up to 72 people.
This is a must-play course in the Port Perry area. You'll want to play 18 holes here - and even better - combine the beautiful 9 holes of Canterbury with the beautiful 9 holes of it's
neighbor King's Bay, and you'll experience a most challenging and enjoyable round of golf! Highly recommended by Two Guys Who Golf... For more on Canterbury Golf Club visit
