The Frank Govern Memorial Golf Course pleases pendulum swingers of all skill levels with 18 holes of executive golf. Players can chip, drive, and floss in sod-stomping cleats as they wind along the 4,000-yard, par 60 course. The grounds' shorter play allows club-wielding connoisseurs to complete quick games and neophytes to develop the literary prowess required to read the legible greens. In lieu of lengthy fairways, the course challenges golfers with a skill-testing short game marked by difficult greens and bunkers. Hugging the North Shore Channel, the lush, green course is ensconced by trees, which partially shield golfers from surrounding roads while providing delicate, twiggy applause.
Formerly known as the Frank Govern Memorial Golf Course, Canal Shores awakens the competitive spirit of golfers of all abilities with an 18-hole, par 60 executive layout. With a total distance of 4,000 yards, the fairway chain invites players to attack each hole from the tee box, as the bulk of the course's difficulty awaits in the form of challenging greens and scorecards that hypnotize anyone who attempts to read them. Trees also loom on the edges of most holes as the layout winds along the edge of the North Shore Channel. Requiring a considerably shorter playing time than its full-length counterparts, Canal Shores' abridged links cater to workers squeezing in a quick, after-hours round or 9-irons trying to get in 18 before their date with a dashing pool cue.
