Got to the course for a 2:30 teetime thinking that we would be able to finish our round by 7:10s dusk. After paying we were told carts need to be back by 6:45 and the pace of play was terrible. Don't they have anyone around checking on how slow a threesome could be. We will be back but not during a situation like this

This place moved to the "watch list!"

Canterbury Woods is a beautiful course with incredible views and scenery all around. The course design is fairly challenging and gives different skill levels a challenge in one way or another. The course is very well-maintained and the staff is very friendly. This was our first time here, but the pace was incredibly slow. In fact, we were delayed 30 minutes from our scheduled tee time. That was very frustrating, and I imagine they just overbooked. That coupled with the lack of a ranger keeping pace out on the course led to my 4-star rating. Otherwise, it would have been 5 stars.

We had the opportunity to play this wonderful course at a great rate through Golf Now. Course was in excellent condition and the greens were fast and smooth. The rate of play was quite slow but it was such a nice day with wonderful scenery it didn't bother us to much. I would definitely play this course again on another trip to NH.

There are plenty of first-class courses in New England that will cost you a pretty penny and countless cheap courses that are nothing to write home about. Canterbury Woods is a rare combination of a fantastic course that charges a fraction of what they could.

I paid $35 for my Sunday afternoon (pre twilight rate) at a course that is similar in condition and overall quality as those (like Owl’s Nest up the road) charging more than twice as much. Of the 80+ courses I’ve played, only Colonial Heritage in my home state of Virginia offers as good a value.

The conditions of the course are top rate with smooth, even fairways, rough, greens, tee boxes, and bunkers in superb shape. No burnt out areas or soggy spots, the greens roll fast and true, and the bunkers are fairly easy to hit out of.

The staff is exceedingly friendly though having a refreshment cart out on the course seemed like a no-brainer but the lack of one was made up for by the good deal on beer at the clubhouse.

The quality of the course aside, what most golfers will talk about at Canterbury Woods is the difficulty. The layout is extremely hilly, with not a lot of flat lies in the fairways and even fewer flat holes in general. Downhill par 3s, uphill par 4s, over-hill par 5, this course has elevation changes in spades, so make sure you bring the slope setting on your range finder. The course does offer free yardage books so if you haven’t played there before I recommend taking advantage of them.

If you’ve only got time to play one course in New Hampshire and have less than $50 to spend, this is your place!

Course has beautiful layout, is challenging for best players but with friendly tees for shorter hitters, and is gorgeous particularly during the fall. Greens are well maintained and difficult. Problems exist occasionally with pace of play...more aggressive ranger would help. Many fairways are on a slant, making straight drives really important. I am 18 handicap and enjoy the course every time I play it.

Played here Sunday 8/6/17. Every single bunker was washed out from what must have been very heavy rain and they were basically unplayable. No attempt at repairs were made and no discount for course conditions was offered - very disappointing. Greens were a little bumpy - maybe recently aerated and not fully healed yet. Normally a great course and in good condition, but this particular day was very disappointing.

We were greeted by an extremely friendly lady, Sandy. Checked us in, sold us a token for the driving range and said the course was a little ahead of schedule so to check back with her when we were done. They were more than accommodating to us. Golf course was in OK condition, the greens were a bit beat up, but our tee time was later in the day, the sand traps and some of the the cart paths were washed away due to the horrific storms that came through in the past 2 days, otherwise great course and exceptional staff.

2017 was the first year in my life where i played atleast 2-3 times a week for the summer. I played at multiple courses throughout New England and Canterbury Woods was the best course i played all year, The tee boxes were clean, taken care, the fairways were great and the greens were perfect. They were a little fast but they were in perfect condition. Best course all year!
