The small settlement of Pinawa was established in 1901 when a hydroelectric station was built but this closed down in the 1950s. A decade later, a nuclear research facility was constructed but this too was decommissioned with a planned completion date of 2024. The golf course lives on though with fairways laid out along the south side of the Pinawa channel.

Provincial Road 211 runs through the layout, separating most of the holes from the clubhouse side. A round begins at the 1st then golfers cross the road to play holes 2 to 7 before returning to complete the front nine. The opening and closing hole on the back nine are played close to the clubhouse, with holes 11-17 laid out across the road.

Highlight holes include the left doglegging par five 5th (rated stroke index 1); the short par four 9th (played across a bay in the lake); the par five 17th (with a pond protecting the left of the green); and the 354-yard 18th, which swings dramatically right from the tee box towards the home green.

Pinawa Golf & Country Club runs parallel to Pinawa Channel and touches onto the Winnipeg River. This layout features boreal forest, rocky outcrops, intimidating wetlands, and plenty of wildlife.

The fairways are hard and dry while the greens are firm but not as fast as they look. The carts are equipped with GPS, but the Pro Shop is about the size of a prefab.

Three of the par-3s are over 200 yards.

The 15th is my favourite hole, a three-shot par-5 featuring a sharp dogleg left at the 140-yard mark to a green that is guarded up front by a large bunker.

Pinawa features strong finishing holes. The 17th is a short but difficult par-5 dogleg left. You have a downhill approach to a green that severely slopes from right to left. You must hit your approach to the right of the green and watch it funnel towards the hole.

The 18th is a short par that bends to the right then almost a button hooks to the green. A great finishing hole. Overall, I found Pinawa to be a nice layout but extremely dry. Still a great value.

My dad grew up in Pinawa so I've had the privilege to play here multiple times. One of the best courses in Manitoba, some beautiful holes carved right out of the Whiteshell area. Worth the drive from Winnipeg, do yourself a favour and play Pinawa
