Due to its immaculately maintained greens, Cranbook Golf Club is one of the most highly rated public courses in the area. It is also lucky enough to receive the most hours of sunshine in all of British Columbia. These are the two main factors in spurring the course's loyal following. The mature parkland layout is tough but also beautiful with towering evergreens framing the view of each hole. Cranbook Golf Club's most challenging features of the layout are the undulating fairways that are lined with trees. The greens are large and fast and many of the holes are tight but there are a few that are more open. The signature hole is the par-4 12th, which first requires a tee shot to an uphill dogleg fairway and then an approach shot that clears the grass before the well bunkered green.
