When local Winnipeg-area golfers are looking for a tee time, they know that Kingswood Golf & Country Club in La Salle, Manitoba is an exciting place to play. Located in an upscale residential community some 20 miles south of Winnipeg International Airport, this popular facility features several holes right on the serpentine La Salle River. The par-71 layout gives players three tee decks to choose from: 5,424 yards from the forward markers, 6,144 yards in the middle, and 6,591 yards from all the way back. Kingswood Golf & Country Club will give you all you can handle from the tips. The layout sports impressive variety, as the short, par-34 front nine features three par 3s and a lone par 5, while the par-37 back nine plays a full 500 yards longer than the front and has just a single par 3 and two par 5s that come back-to-back. Devotees of Kingswood Golf & Country Club laud its collection of holes. You ll find a mix of tree-lined and open and exposed holes that spread out on a playing field that boasts about as much in the way of elevation changes as the landscape around Winnipeg can offer. Water hazards are integral to the beauty and challenge of the game at Kingswood Golf & Country Club. In addition to the twisting river that crosses and skirt fairways, creeks and ponds pop up to inhibit your swing. Several holes require forced carry shots, including the home hole that culminates at a green that is nearly encircled by an aquatic hazard. Wind can be the x-factor on the open holes at Kingswood Golf & Country Club. Because of the proximity of some of the houses, out of bounds is also a threat. The club allows walking, but due to the spread-out nature of the layout and the distances between some greens and tees, it is not generally recommended. Practice facilities at Kingswood Golf & Country Club include a driving range, chipping area, and putting green. The clubhouse features a pro shop and a restaurant that offers breakfast and lunch fare. With its unique routing and pretty setting on the La Salle River, Kingswood Golf & Country Club has been a favorite tee-time option in Winnipeg's southern reaches ever since it opened in 1987.
