Just received word that the Canton Public Golf Course was sold for $4.7million and has been closed. It's going to be turned into a series of designer outlet stores. A real shame. What a place to play golf. I've got a receipt from 6/26/86. $5.50 a round -- and those guys didn't care if you went for more than a lap. Hole 1 with the elevated tee and the creek about half way. 2 next to Secret Lake Road. Back and forth on 3, 4, and 5. Straight uphill on 6 -- with the soda machines before the next tee. 7 with the lake. Slap it right far enough and you'd wind up with a decent lie again. 8 with the trees on the right. And 9 -- smack the ball straight up with a sand wedge and see what the hell happens. With all the tree branches and a 50 foot drop over, what, 90 yards, the hole played like a big pachinko pinball machine. The pro shop? The atmosphere in there was fantastic. Perfect place to cool off after playing a few holes in 90 degree weather with 90 percent humidity. That ancient Orangeaid dispenser, the kind which would continually pump the liquid around in a glass bowl, probably still had some of the original batch of concentrate swirling around from the 50's -- and the stuff tasted great. Only place I ever drank that crap.

This is a VERY nice, well kept 9-hole, full length golf course. It is NOT a short or especially easy course, and I found it a good challenge, especially its 6th "hill". The greens are among the best conditioned I've ever played on, and several are very undulated, ala Augusta! Tees and fairways are also in very nice condition. Water comes into play on 5 holes. And the Lowell family (owners for all 67 years!) make everyone feel welcome. I liked it and will play it again!

Customer Service

The people here are very friendly and accomodating, family run!
