Canterbury Golf Club

18 hole Harry Colt designed parkland course and floodlit driving range

Canterbury Golf Club opened for play in 1927 on 160 acres of land leased from the War Office. Designed by the renowned course architect Harry Colt, the 18-hole course boasts several areas given SSSI status by Natural England.

Over many years, the original heathland nature of the course has altered with the introduction of huge expanses of trees. The resulting mature woodland, with its carpet of bluebells in spring and wide variety of wildlife all year round, make this an uplifting place to play golf.

The closure of the adjoining Howe Barracks in February 2015 enabled the golf club to buy the land on which the course stands from the Ministry of Defence. Since then, heavy investment has seen the course developed and improved, a long-term project that is still ongoing.

The course is 6,287 yards off the whites - a par 71 - and is a mix of open par 5s, tight par 4s and challenging par 3s

Our driving range provides an opportunity for non-members and novice players to improve their game or for members and regular golfers to keep their game ticking over while winter conditions restrict activity on the course.

High quality Srixon practice golf balls, spacious bays, a free club loan service and ample parking make Canterbury Driving Range the best in the area.
