Club Philosophy

Dress and Act within the Traditions of Golf


Canterbury is “all about golf!” The championship course is kept in tournament condition at all times. Members have access to practice facilities that include a short game area and an extensive putting green located directly off the patio of the Clubhouse. The golf event schedule is packed with opportunities for all skill levels and is both competitive and fun. The summer program for junior golfers ranks among the best and offers a tremendous foundation for young golfers who wish to learn or become future Canterbury Champions. Golf at Canterbury is world class and the Golf Professional Team sets the benchmark to which other private clubs aspire! 

Corporate and Charity Golf Outings - The gracious Canterbury Staff are experts in coordinating corporate and charity golf outings that allow members and guests to enjoy a fantastic day of golf on a Top 100 course. Monday outings are reserved for groups of 72 or more. Small weekday outings are also available. In 2013 we were proud to report that over $500,000 was raised by charitable organizations that held their golf outings at Canterbury!


World Class Dining - Our national awarding winning culinary team does an outstanding job with all events and the day to day ala carte’ offerings, where service is our number one priority.  The Patio at Canterbury is the best place in Cleveland in the summertime for a relaxing drink or dinner under the stars.

Social - Each season Canterbury plans social events of interest to all Members and their Guests which include Family Nights, Patio Nights, Poolside Dining, Club Parties, and Chefs Dinners.  Our Holidays are special from Easter, to Mother's Day, the Father's Day Cookout, Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day Picnics, and of course Brunch with Santa feature many activities for kids and scrumptious food for the entire family.

Weddings - Weddings at Canterbury Golf Club are far from ordinary. Our Executive Chef and Club Manager work personally with each couple to create an exceptional experience tailored to their individual tastes and needs.  Brides and Grooms also have full access to the Club’s pristine grounds, which create magnificent backgrounds for wedding photos and keepsake memories.

Tennis and Swimming - Members and their guests enjoy tennis and paddle tennis under the watchful eye of one of Cleveland’s best Tennis Professionals.  The season is packed with programs and events for adults and children. A beautiful garden setting surrounds the Club’s heated, Olympic sized pool. Known to have one of the best swim teams in the area, Canterbury was the first club in the U.S. to initiate interclub swimming competitions. A professional staff provides lessons and oversees many activities including swim team and synchronized swimming.
