CANFORD GOLF CLUB
Canford Golf Club is a proprietary club owned by Canford School. The course is set within the school's 300 acres of mature parkland with many ancient trees and a rippling brook providing the context for some challenging holes of golf. This course, with its EGU, LGU club affiliations looks benign but it provides a severe test for golfers of all abilities and handicaps.
There are 9 holes, but 18 different tees. Some of the tees require long and accurate drives; like the 14th with its 195 yard carry over a brook; or the 15th with its 180 yard carry over a lake; or the 2nd with a narrow pass between a bunker and a pond, at the point where the hole takes a dog-leg left. The SS of 68 for men and 71 for ladies is rarely achieved on this 6000 yard course (5,300 yards for the ladies). The course is well maintained by the school's own green keepers.
