About Oakview Golf & Country Club
This beautiful rural golf course is set in an old oak grove and was established in 1953. From its championship tees it measures in at 3218 yards over 9 holes and has many interesting challenges for golfers to explore. Among them is the long 528 yard third hole which requires two long shots and a well placed approach to reach the green. A large Cottonwood tree on the left side overhangs into the fairway and presents a real challenge on your second shot.
The creek comes into play on holes number one, two and nine. It also acts as a backstop behind the eighth green, so don't go long on number eight.
The eighth hole is arguably Oakview's most difficult hole, as it plays as a very long par three. A trap to the right of the green, and overhanging trees on both sides of the fairway create tremendous complications in trying to reach the putting surface on this 219 yard hole. Once there, your putting abilities will almost surely be put to the test on the tricky two tiered green.
The signature hole is Oakview's finishing 9th. Another par three, it cuts diagonally across the creek and is easily the most beautiful hole on the course.
Oakview is located at 1084 Highway 30 about 9.5 kilometers south of Altona (just north of Gretna), and is just over an hours drive from Winnipeg. Go to maps page for the location.
