Private membership is within your reach…
Since 1914 Elmhurst Golf & Country Club has given Winnipeg golf lovers and area residents a premier place to golf and enjoy leisure time. Everyone deserves a place they can go to relax with their family, entertain friends and have the sense of belonging that only comes with a private golf membership. Elmhurst is the place for you, and it’s closer than you think. Only 15 minutes from downtown Winnipeg to enjoy golf at Manitoba’s premiere golf course built by mother nature.
Elmhurst never closes because of rain. The naturally draining terrain which Elmhurst is lucky enough to be built on allows for play immediately following heavy rains.
With Donald Ross as its golf course architect, Elmhurst can boast that it has one of only two golf architects ever elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame. Over 100 major championships have been played on Ross courses and they continue to be utilized with great regularity.

Elmhurst’s Master Plan
In the mid-2000s Elmhurst’s Board of Directors developed a Master Plan document based on recommendations from Ron Pritchard, a world renowned golf architect and Donald Ross restoration expert. Since this document was produced, the club has made changes to the golf course based on its recommendations. The result has been a return to the classic Donald Ross style of golf that is lost in many North American markets. As the 2014 US Open, held at a restored Pinehurst #2 would indicate, golf in North America is returning to it’s roots and Elmhurst is on the cusp of this comeback.
