Pros: -Use of Trees: holes were sculpted around trees to produce a variety of shot requirements
-Maintenance: Baskets were in great condition and lawn was well mowed
-Scenery: Course is surrounded by beautiful shrubbery, trees, and ponds
-Accessibility: Easy to reach course of main roads
-Utilization of space: Holes were spread such that there was great variety and the holes were not too close together
Cons: -Lack of Cement teepads: Grass was hard to get traction on, and tees were difficult to find at times with only wood markers
-Lack of Signage: Hard to follow course at times
-Baskets: While they were in great condition, the grey color was hard to see from a distance, and they were not marked with hole number
-Lack of Parking: While the map indicates a parking lot, there is nothing close to the start of the course
-Non-DG Specific Park: Plenty of dogs and walkers in the park, constantly having to make sure walking paths are clear
Other Thoughts: A great course, and definitely worth a bit of a drive to play. Hole 6 (over the pond) is a ton of fun, and the rest of the course is wonderful as well. A must-play if you are in the area!

 so close to perfection

Pros: -Well designed shots
-Nice mix of long and techincal shots
Cons: -No signs
-Tee boxes are just a piece of wood. Could not find tee box for #3, #8 and #13 so guessed on position from map.
-Several long walks between holes
Other Thoughts: This course is so close to awesome, but the negs definitely hold it back.
I played this course in August 2010 so the weather was nice, but should have brought the bug spray. Not sure what the availablity of the course is in the winter.
The course needs some better defined tee boxes and signs; even with the map it was hard to find the tee boxes. I could not find the tees for #3, #8 or #13. For #3 I played just left of the bench; #8 played even with the island; and #13 up on the hill played from the trail intersection.
I will definitely play this course again when I am back in Winnipeg, but will make sure to allow more time to enjoy.
Oh and if you are a novice/recreational player, beware of hole 16, 301ft accross water to the basket that sits within 30ft of the water, very tough for us players whose great throws are just over 300ft.
