Scenic, Challenging and a Ball Monster

Takes a bit of effort to get up to the Green Hills Golf Resort 18 hole golf course at Greenwater Provincial Park, but the drive and scenery are worth it. Best part of making the time and effort to get to this course is, once you're up there, you have a very challenging and well groomed course all to yourself. I stopped by on my way through on my travels, as it had been a couple of years since I had last been up to play the course. There was a tournament going on the day I showed up and thought I wouldn't be able to get on. Not only did I get on, I pretty much had the course to myself for most of my round. Knowing how hilly and rolling the course could be, I opted to rent a cart for the 18 holes. That saved my legs for the longer 500+ yard holes and the fear of rolling down the hill on some of the more diabolical holes. The first hole plays straight out with a hard dog leg left, that drops down on a blind green. That gives you the first taste of how challenging the course will be. But you will be amazed as you pop up on hills and come upon openings where you can watch spruce trees and poplar trees rolling off into the distance. Some neat little sloughs and lakes around the fringe of the course, where you can watch the beaver industriously hacking away at the poplar trees while you wait to tee off. This course has everything from tight bush lined holes , to wide open links style fairways. The greens were in great shape and remarkably fast, so be careful with your putting. Some of the holes are really remarkable. The 16th hole where you have to play a very careful 200 yard drive going out off the side of the hill, over water, to land on what looks like a postage stamp sized fairway is beautiful. Miss hit and you will fight the rest of the hole. Really a signature hole of the course. The 7th hole with it's double dog leg and the strategy of a well placed 200 yard drive, to set up a 120 yard lateral 9 iron shot and a 150 approach to the green will have you amazed at the course design. I'm a pretty good golfer, but I was scrambling to find balls in my bag, as the course had a ball monster running around swallowing up the balls. If you played out to where you couldn't see, that ball was gone, never to be seen again. The carts for rent were in decent shape. Clubhouse had full amenities and a beautiful view of the course off the patio. For the serious golfer, I would rent a campsite in the overflow area adjacent to the golf course and come for a couple of days. This is the course where you play the first round to get familiar with the lay out, then the next rounds are to bear down and see how good you can really play. :) And the overflow campground is right next to the 16th hole green, so you can pop out on the course right after your morning coffee. How cool is that? :) Right now is a beautiful time to play. Temperatures are perfect, nights are starting to cool off, leaves are just starting to turn. And I didn't get bitten by a single mosquito.
