Canterbury Golf Club was founded in 1921 and Herbert Strong originally laid out the course that was modified a couple of years later by Jack Way, the club professional.
It’s not a long course but the site is delightfully undulating with rolling hills, brooks and wooded areas. But with many holes that dogleg left and right and a breeze whipping off Lake Erie, you can expect a stern enough test.
The undulating 605-yard 16th is a monster that demands a precise second shot to an elevated plateau, then an accurate approach iron to the small, flat green. The par four18th is perhaps the toughest hole at Canterbury, measuring 438 uphill yards with out of bounds to the right and a partially blind second shot to a heavily bunkered green.
Host to two US Opens, both in the 1940s, and the 1973 PGA Championship, Canterbury’s place in golfing history is assured.
