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 saw 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.
The second hole is a superb introduction to the golf ahead. Don't be deceived by this seemingly innocent par three.
A prevailing wind suggests a club less but the bank in front swallows short shots. A miss over the back results in a very difficult chip and a certain bogey. As you make your way to the green, make sure you look to the left to see where the pin is on 12. You'll need that later!
The loop of 11 and 12 and 13 is one of the prettiest set of holes in the county. Enjoy the woodland walks and swooping undulations and hope that the scorecard is still intact when you reach the 14th tee!
