nice little course
Pros: great little course with lots of tree both mature and new, and mostly grass fairways. Oldest course in Canada which is what brought me here. This course is very short, and forehand(or LHBH) friendly. Birdies available on every hole and even a few decent ace shots. It was a very quick play and I was able to get in 3 rounds in a very short amount of time.
Cons: No signs, or Tee pads, but found a map online that helped until a local showed me the way.
Other Thoughts: Worth playing for its historical significance. Would love to go back and try some of the alternate courses. was told there were over 15 of them.
Older Rec Course Could Use An Partial Facelift!

Pros: Winskill is located in a corner of a larger community park which also features a pool and athletic fields. The course was first developed in 1976 as a polehole course and still has that "old school" flavor to it. The holes range from probably 150' to 300' with a couple being basically striaght down the fairway shots. The baskets are old and definitely showing their age. There are no teepads just bare places in the grass where players have been teeing for years. There is no signage of any description. The course is flat with just enough scattered trees to rate it as a recreational course. It starts and finished at the parking lot next to the pool.
Cons: I'm surprised that in all years, no-one has stepped up to make any simple improvements to this course. Like maybe placing a board on the front edge of the dirt tee off area? Or maybe coming up with some rudimentary signage of some kind? Or how how about going plum crazy and putting in some paver blocks to act as teepads. I'm sure these bare spots must fill up with water during the oftentimes rainy times up here.
Other Thoughts: The course was getting some good usage on the afternoon that I played with everything from a guy and his young daughter to groups of 5 and 6 players. It's a fun little throw with some major historical signficance behind it. I'd just like to see a couple basic fundemental amentities added to add to the enjoyment factor here.
