The factors that converged to allow for this trip – 3 of Manitoba’s best public courses in 2 days, with a good friend from the area – may never align again (though I hope it can). This was a truly special golf experience. The course itself, like seemingly many Manitoba courses, is wildly underrated. The lakeside golf holes are spectacular. And when the course cuts inland there is some enjoyable and really well designed golf holes. The experience playing Granite Hills was fun and unpretentious. While people joke about the short golfing season in parts of Canada (especially Manitoba) this is a course people should make an effort to experience.
