Winnipeg, Manitoba

 
A beautiful 18-hole park land course designed in 1923 by Stanley Thompson, the premier Canadian Golf Course Architect of his time, is considered one of the most challenging and difficult par 72s in Winnipeg, presenting singular challenges and beauty on the signature holes known as "the Horn". The Club has hosted several National Championship Events. In 1946, 1952 and 1960 the course served as venue for the Canadian PGA Championship. The Canadian Open was held in 1961, the RCGA Men's Amateur Championship in 1974 and the Canadian Ladies' Amateur Championship in 1956, 1972, and 2001.
