Niakwa Country Club provides a premier, private club environment, allowing the members to experience the sheer joy of golf and feel among friends. Niakwa Country Club was launched in the fall of 1921 by a few enthusiasts who envisioned a need in Winnipeg for a high quality golf course, close to the city.
Stanley Thompson, internationally renowned Canadian golf architect, arrived in Winnipeg in November 1922. Natural artistry has been described as the essence of Thompson’s design philosophy and this was never clearer than with the layout of this course. In designing Niakwa, Thompson took full advantage of the Seine River and the ravines that ran through the property as nine of the holes either crossed the river or a ravine.
From the time of its opening day in 1923 to today, Niakwa has been acknowledged and continues to be one of Canada’s finest golf courses. Like a living work of art, Niakwa has evolved and changed over the decades, but always with the ever present spirit of its master, Stanley Thompson.
