Review of Canongate at South Shore Harbour South Course
Canongate at South Shore Harbour is home to three nines, each of which has it’s own unique characteristics and personality but common to all is a fairly traditional layout with flat to gently rolling fairways, water hazards, plenty of bunkers, challenging greens, and a steady wind that beats off the bay. Each of the nines was originally designed by Dave Marr and Jay Riviere and was renovated and augmented by Jeffery Blume in the late 1990s.
The Shore Nine is regarded as the most challenging thanks to tough greens, thicker roughs, and tighter fairways. The Harbour Nine has water on 7 holes but it’s a little shorter and more forgiving from tee to green. South plays the longest and has the highest slope and rating, but plays easier than the Shore Nine and harder than the Harbour nine.
