The Canton Country Club golf course first opened for play in 1926. The golf course was redesigned in 1959 by Robbie Webb.
The course was designed and built in 1926 so it has that majestic look of the older courses you see the pros playing. Narrow fairways lined with tall oak and pine trees, just the right amount of water, and beautiful white sand bunkers strategically placed. Its not an overly long course at 6332 yards with a 69.8 rating and a slope of 119, but it does offer five par 5's and postage stamp sized greens that are in immaculate condition. Par is 72 and would require some excellent shooting and shot shaping to accomplish. The course contains both left and right dog-legs and all but one of the 5 par 3's require a water carry and well placed iron to attain par.
Canton Country Club's hole #14 is the signature hole, a 391-yard, par 4, requiring a tee shot up a dogleg right fairway, then an approach shot to an elevated green.
Blue tees: par-72, 6,322 yards, 69.5/114
White tees: par-72, 5,896 yards, 68.5/110
Red tees(W): par-72, 4,973yards, 67.8/107

The PGA professional, Olly Thomson, that runs the pro shop is top notch and made my trip well worth the visit to the Country Club of Canton. He and his staff were more than accommodating and professional. A beautiful 18 hole golf course with challenging holes. The grille was exceptional with a ton of things to choose from their menu. The selection of food and drink was endless. Definitely will be a return guest. Great golf, great food, great staff.
