What the club says: Harry Shapland Colt, one of the finest course designers to have ever lived, created the masterpiece that is Canterbury Golf Course. In 1927 the course opened for play and it has been evolving ever since. Our 80th year has seen changes to the 18th hole. A reshape and reinstatement of the traditional gorse and broom has made the closing hole at Canterbury one of the best.

Course - Better than of old
Food - Very much below par

No towels in the locker room was a massive let down.

Great course, tricking rough and narrow, but possibly some bouncy fairways which could be better. Greens generally good

Great day out

Turned up on a society day and was expecting a lovely course.We wasn't disappointed.Right from the welcome we received to a substantial breakfast everything was perfect.The course itself was a mature parkland affair although tight in places was very fair.
You have to plot your way round,as if you try to overpower it the course will show it's teeth.
A must play track,the greens were true and quite quick and all the bunkers looked well kept as were the tees.Fairways were brown in places but we're beginning to green up due to the recent rain we have had.
Well done Canterbury,can't wait to return.????

Fairways damaged by recent hot weather- should be preferred lies generally at the moment. Weather was poor on my recent visit and the dye in the greens covering hands etc.. I have palyed it before and it is usually a good test.

Nice course worth playing

Course was in great shape. Greens were quality and difficult to judge. Made a tough challenging game which on the day I failed to meet.. Maybe next year.

I've played here three times recently and I have to say the course is great. Really nice holes that make you think. Tees greens and fairways are all in great nick. This time I took along 7 friends from out of the area and they were all very complimentary about the course.

Never really been sold on Canterbury, but I take it all back. The course is in great condition, the new manager has certainly turned it around, with everything going on at chart hills could membership be on the cards, I think so.
A very warm welcome from members upon entering the clubhouse, my only criticism is arriving at 7.30 there was no sign of breakfast, not very good for such a busy club on a weekend !

Played here for the first time this year. Actually really enjoyed the course. Loved the raised tee boxes, a few very tricky holes. The greens were in good condition, especially considering we had very heavy rain the day before. I will happily come back. Club house didn't have much atmosphere. Practice facilities were very good.
