Shaftesbury Glen Golf and Fish Club
Wide open but WET!!!
Wide open course with elevated bent grass greens and numerous bunkers. We played two days after it rained. It was cart path only, and realistically it was so wet that the course should have been closed. The starter said the course is usually wet four days after a rain. I seem to find that problem more and more here in the MB area with courses. I personally don't understand how an area with a sand based soil cannot get golf courses to drain better than they do. Maybe in their hurry and in a cost saving mode to build all the courses that they have down here, they skimped on the drain tiles. Would love to play this course when it is dry. so the ball would bounce and roll, instead of plugging. Great layout, just watch the weather forecast before booking your tee time.
