The phoenix of the Interlake:

My apologies to the late Mr. Lightfoot. Lake Manitoba's answer to the Loch Ness monster certainly has a more entertaining enunciation, but I suspect our mythical creature is likely just three humps of sand visible during low-water levels. There was even a golf course on the shores named after the mythical creature. It closed a few years ago but, like another mythical creature, the phoenix, the course rises again, and is now, finally, in full operation. West of Highway 6, near Twin Beaches and Saint-Laurent, is the newly renamed Lake Manitoba Resort Golf Course.

Now, this resurrection did not happen overnight. I have literally been waiting all summer to play it. In June, July, and August, while visiting my Métis relatives in the area, I popped in to see if the place was ready. On each occasion, I was told it would be "just another week or two." Well, it finally opened for business at the end of August, and I finally played it in early September.

Was it worth the wait? Yes!

What really struck me was the impressive state of the grounds. The fairways were in very good shape, but the real treat was the spectacular greens. They were very healthy and played better than most of the greens I've encountered around the province this year. I hope the grounds winter well, as I am quite likely to return in the spring for more rounds. There is a driving range and a large practice putting green. A fleet of newer electric carts await you at the front step. You may not need a cart, however, as this course has no significant elevation changes and is definitely walk-friendly. The clubhouse features a well-stocked pro shop and serves hot dogs and sandwiches. However, there is no restaurant just yet. Beer - I mean, soda pop - is available at the pro shop desk. From the brand-new tee markers to the brand-new cups and flag sticks, all this freshness gives the links that 'new course' smell.
