A couple of days ago a message popped up in my promotions tab with a great offer from Quarry Oaks. The offer was the twilight rate ($42.50) with cart but starting at 1230 in the afternoon.
I sent out a message to some fellow golfers and was quickly able to get a foursome together.
We played yesterday (2016-08-24) with a tee off of 12:38.
I’ve played Quarry Oaks many times over the years and every time I do I lament that fact that it’s located east of Steinbach, and I live in Winnipeg. It’s the type of course that were it closer to a major population center would attract a high volume of golfers. It is the type of course (if it were closer to where I live) I would be a member of.
Why you ask, what so good about Quarry Oaks? Here are but a few reasons:
- Variety. Three very distinctive 9’s that offer significantly different views and challenges.
- Well conditioned tee boxes, fairways and greens.
- Interesting carries over waste areas and water.
- Undulating greens that are challenging yet fair (if you put the ball in the right spots).
- Friendly staff and superb service.
There are many more reasons but you probably get the drift.
I’ve often said to golfing friends from Ontario: if Quarry Oaks were located in Ontario people from Toronto would gladly drive 1 or two hours and pay well over $100.00 to play a round of golf on a course that provided the experience Quarry Oaks offers.
If you have never played the course, or have not played it recently you need to get out there. It’s the type of layout you need to play several times a year even if you don’t live in the immediate area. It’s that good!
