This course, which originally opened as a nine hole layout, added
nine new holes in 1995. The terrain is flat, sparsely treed and
quite easy to walk. The greens on the original nine are small and
flat, while the greens on the newer holes are large and undulating.
The challenge of the course are the eight water hazards and the
bunkered greens. The signature hole is #9, a 347-yard, par 4, requiring
a straight tee shot, then an accurate approach shot to an undulating
green that is nearly surrounded by water.
This course incorporates the seldom seen undulating terrain of Manitoba.
The narrow fairways are densely populated with trees, water and
bunkers, necessitating accurate tee shots for low scoring. Your
putting skills will be put to the test by the very large, undulating
greens. The scenic signature hole is #8, a 197-yard, par 3, offering
a spectacular view of the course and its dramatic elevation changes
from the tee. There is a creek flowing through the course affecting
play on six holes, and two other holes require shots over ponds.
This course has a few hills and sand
bunkers, so interesting lies are common place. The greens vary in
slope, and locals say that they are full of subtle breaks. Basically,
if you're new to the area, don't expect to putt well. The signature
hole is #4, a 424-yard, par 4, requiring a long tee shot up a somewhat
generous fairway, then a long approach shot to a green protected
by a pond on the right. What's most interesting about this hole
is that when you're putting, all the putts will break toward the
pond, even if they appear to break the other way. A new clubhouse
was constructed in 1994. The clubhouse sits atop a hill that provides
scenic views of the surrounding countryside.
This very scenic and unique course
was built on hilly terrain and features medium-sized greens and
tree-lined fairways. Water hazards come into play on two holes.
