Construction of the Northwind Narrows Golf and Country Club is an ongoing project of Narrows West Lodge, located at the west side of the Narrows Bridge on Lake Manitoba.
Golf course architect David Grant of Grant Golf is in charge of the land cleaning and earth work which has been slowed by wet weather in the past two seasons. There is hope to have the 18-hole lakeside layout nearing completion by the end of this season.
Narrows West Lodge president Chad Olafson said the operation is looking forward to adding golf to its site, which is already popular for fishing and other recreational activities. In addition to the lodge, plans call for cottage lots, a hotel and condo developments at the site.
Grant is also involved in another course project in the Russell area, north of the Assissippi ski area, where plans call for a full 18-hole course to be developed. The area has an 18-hole par-three layout which has been in operation for the past two seasons.
The firm has also been active with several alterations on other golf courses in the Winnipeg area and consulting on proposals for new layouts.
There were no reports of any other major changes on the Manitoba scene as the 2011 season opened.
