There’s no question St. Charles is a Winnipeg institution, consistently one of the country’s great golf clubs over its history, which now eclipses 100 years.
"What a heritage!" wrote The Rolex World’s Top 1000 Golf Courses when speaking of St. Charles. "One nine at St. Charles was laid out by Donald Ross in 1919, another in 1929 by Dr. Alister Mackenzie … the distinct styles of both architects can be clearly seen, including Ross’ raised greens and the large flashed-sand bunkers of Mackenzie."
And great keeps getting better. Over the past few seasons, St. Charles has undertaken a massive restoration of its original nines, designed by Alister MacKenzie (Augusta National) and Donald Ross (Pinehurst No. 2). Original features were restored, greens were expanded, and tees, fairways and greens were regressed to be consistent with the classic design elements crafted by these two legends. The final nine will be renovated by the firm of Rhebb and Johns in the style of Canadian legend Stanley Thompson. The Mackenzie and Ross nines will be fully in play in 2024, with the final nine reopening in 2026.
This work is a continuation of St. Charles’ commitment to access of the golf course for its members. With only 24,000 rounds annually, far less than most 18-hole courses have, let alone a facility with 27 holes, St. Charles provides its members with the ability to play when they are able, without having to book days ahead.
