The Elmwood Golf & Country Club first opened its links for play in 1917. Within the following 10 years the course was completely redesigned by Bill Brinkworth. At the time of the redesign, Elmwood (which lies alongside Swift Current Creek) was reported to be one of the premier 18 hole layouts in Western Canada.
Through the many years since that time, this beautiful course has lost none of its grandeur. Much more difficult than it first appears, Elmwood makes creative use of the hilly and well treed landscape that runs alongside the creek. Twice, during play, golfers are required to cross the creek and, in many other instances, account for it in their shot planning.
Of many excellent holes on the course, the par four on the 7th is likely the most demanding. Your tee shot on this 430 yard hole will have to fight its way up a hill. For best positioning, seek the middle of the fairway to avoid the trees on the left and the cliff on the right. For your approach choose a long iron, and take care to keep the ball straight to avoid the traps on both the left and right sides of the green.
