Everyone will tell you that Gig Harbor summers are sublime. It is hard to pull a Washingtonian away from the perfect 78-degree weather of June, July, and August. If you do not have a pool or daily water access, you might consider joining the Canterwood Golf and Country Club.
Nestled in the heart of the 780-acre Canterwood neighborhood, the 18-hole, Robert Muir Graves-designed championship golf course blends seamlessly with the beauty of this unique Pacific Northwest community. The tree-lined course has been voted in the Golf Digest Top 10 in the state of Washington more than once.
Club membership is a fantastic value for the available amenities. In addition to golf, the club offers the Gig Harbor community a variety of amenities: summer access to the pool and spa, four tennis courts, a fitness center (small, but rarely crowded), a private dining experience, and special holiday events throughout the year. The private event space, which members may rent for a fee, is among the most popular in the Gig Harbor area.
Two family membership options are available. The Social Membership includes everything but golf, while the Golf Membership is all-inclusive. Bonus if you are under 40 (couples have to both be under 40), there is a significant price break under the Jr. Golf Membership! Golf events include (but aren’t limited to): Men’s & Women’s Member Guest Invitational, men’s golf associations, ladies’ 9-hole and 18-hole golf associations, Twilight Golf, Junior Golf, and much more.
Many Canterwood residents are also members of the country club, but the club is a private entity and is not an automatic perk of living in the neighborhood. Residency is also not a requirement for membership. The club consists of a mix of families, empty-nesters, and retirees, making for eclectic event options and dynamic networking opportunities throughout the year. Depending upon your interests, you can take a cardio class or relax poolside with the kids, join a golf association or a bridge club, attend a wine tasting or a trivia night, and so much more—all while enjoying the company of your neighbors and deepening your connection to the community.
I am both a resident of the Canterwood neighborhood and a member of the Canterwood Golf and Country Club. If you would like more information about the club, please reach out by calling 253-313-4093 or emailing me at email@example.com. I would love to treat you to lunch and a tour of the club. I am also happy to help you schedule a tee time or put you in touch with Rebecca, Canterwood Golf and Country Club’s Membership Coordinator.
See you at the pool!
