Selkirk Golf & Country Club is located in the city of Selkirk, and is surrounded on three sides by the Red River. It is peaceful place to relax and enjoy a day on the links!
Pro Tip: Straightaway par 4; easy starting hole if you keep your tee ball in play. The elevated first tee allows every player to gain a few extra yards on their opening tee shot. A reasonable tee shot will leave you with a short iron into a mildly sloped green protected by a bunker.
Pro Tip: The tough second hole shows how difficult Selkirk G & CC can play. Leaving your second shot just short or on the front of the green, gives you the best chance to make a par.
Pro Tip: A well placed tee shot of about 230 yds up the left hand side of the fairway allows you the best chance to get on this green in regulation.
Pro Tip: A 190 yd drive at the mound in the middle of the fairway, sets up best for the difficult approach over a bunker just in front of the green.
Pro Tip: The first of Selkirk’s beautiful par threes. This hole requires an accurate iron shot. It is best to keep your ball below the hole on this difficult green.
Pro Tip: A hidden bunker 270 yds off the tee protects this short par four from the longer hitters.
Pro Tip: This very difficult par 3 hole will generally play against the wind resulting in difficult club selection. Hitting the green with your tee shot does not guarantee a par due to the fact that this green is two-tiered with many undulations.
Pro Tip: This long par 5 is protected by out of bounds down the entire right side of the fairway and trees down the left side of the hole. This hole is extremely difficult to hit in two with a well-placed tree on the left hand side of the fairway protecting the green. This par 5 is not an easy birdie opportunity.
Pro Tip: A difficult par four with out of bounds down the right and trees up the left. Even the best player will breathe a sigh of relief if they walk away with a par.
Pro Tip: A very generous fairway allows players to loosen up their backs on this tee shot. Be cautious of the sand trap short and left, it is deep and tough to get out close to the hole.
Pro Tip: A long dog leg left par four with a well placed bunker protecting the green. Do not get upset if you lose a stroke or two to par on this hole!
Pro Tip: A scenic par three that yields some birdies. It is best to putt from below the hole on this tricky green.
Pro Tip: A tough tee shot for the average player, makes this shortish par four play tougher than it looks. Look for the new pond in 2008.
Pro Tip: The first of back to back par fives. This hole can be reached in two by the longest hitters with a drive up the left hand side. If you hit it in the trees on the right the best play is to chip out straight side ways!
Pro Tip: This second consecutive par five is long and quite often into the wind. Be patient and trust your wedge game to try and make a birdie.
Pro Tip: This par three is one of the prettiest holes on the golf course. A narrow green, surrounded by bunkers, and water on the left, will unnerve the steadiest of players.
Pro Tip: The difficult seventeenth, with water on the left and trees on the right requires an accurate tee shot. Once you’ve hit the fairway, the fun has just begun. This green is well protected by a bunker on the left, and it is very difficult to read your putts once you arrive at the green.
Pro Tip: Selkirk’s finishing hole looks easy until you reach the green. A 185 yd tee shot will leave you with approximately 120-130 yds to the green. Whatever the play, do not leave your next shot above the hole, as this green is extremely sloped from back to front!
