Share the Experience of Clear Lake Golf Course - Onanole, Manitoba
The Clear Lake Golf Course was built in two stages commencing in 1928. Renowned architect Stanley Thompson designed the front nine while the back nine was designed and built by Vic Creed with supervision from Park Superintendent Mr. Smart.
The complete course was open for play in the spring of 1934. Relief Workers during the Great Depression supplied labor for the back nine, and at the time the green fees were set at fifty cents. An annual golf membership was available for husband and wife for the princely sum 5.00 per couple.
The Golf Professional for the day was well-known Johnnie Lawrence who continued in that capacity for 43 years until his retirement in 1976. Local tradespeople built the Clubhouse, which is registered as a Heritage Building, in 1933.
We are situated in Riding Mountain National Park at the east end of Clear Lake. The course remains one of the most unique and beautiful courses in the Province. The course is within 10 minutes of the commercial district and any of the lodges in the area. When driving north along highway #10, turn left at the end of the lake and the gates will invite you in.
