Canaan is one of three courses located in the very quiet Northwest corner of the state. This is the first line on their website and I can’t say it any better. “The Canaan golf community features scenic, relaxing landscapes and unmatched values and service.” The staff loved my story and we talked for almost an hr before I teed off. I had to cut it short because I was playing all three 9 holers up there that day. Hole one sends you straight out with a wide open short par 4. I liked hole 7 the best as it brings you back to the clubhouse with Canaan mountain in the background. Should be the closing hole but instead they have 8 and 9 jammed behind the clubhouse near an old trail yard. I played Canaan with a very friendly talkative retiree, who wrote his initials PAR on his ball which is pretty funny, and who bought my lunch. Overall its a decent course to play if you are ever doing a B&B weekend up there and get the itch. It gets a solid 6.5 and is an above average 9 hole course.
