If you ask serious
golfers what their favorite course on Cape
Cod is the name that often pops up is
Cranberry Valley Golf Course which opened
in 1974 in the beautiful Cape Cod town of
Harwich. The course was designed by
Geoffrey Cornish and Bill Robinson and
quickly became a very popular golf
destination for players from all over.
Cranberry Valley is well maintained and
features a superb routing that flows
easily over beautiful terrain, which
includes marshes, and of course a few
cranberry bogs. Every hole has its own
personality and no two are the same.
Management enhanced the
course a few years ago through an
extensive bunker redesign and restoration,
overseen by noted architect Mark Mungeam.
Several fairway bunkers were relocated so
as to come into play and protect par
against todayís modern equipment, although
the best players can still accept the
challenge of attempting to fly the traps
off the tee.
Mungeam also redesigned
the driving range and practice facilities.
Cranberry Valley now has one of the finest
practice facilities on Cape Cod, which
includes a short game area with bunkers
and a chipping area, providing players
with the opportunity to work on all
aspects of their game.
Cranberry Valley isnít
overly long by todayís standards at 6,745
yards, but this par 72 layout has a number
of dogleg holes that add invisible yardage
which demand proper club selection and
placement off the tee. With challenging
Par 3s and an exciting double dogleg
finale on Hole #18, Cranberry Valley
offers a full golf experience whether you
are a beginner or long-time player.
