Getting here:If coming to the site by car, note that the access to the Golf Club is through the (mostly) empty golf course parking lot just north of the primary turn off into Kildonan Park. It is easy to miss the turn when driving from either direction – or by turning too early when headed north and ending up in the park. If driving northbound on Main Street, be on the lookout for the entrance to the parking lot on the right about 50m past the main park entrance.
If arriving by bus, the bus stop is located just north of the (mostly) empty parking lot. Here is the bus stop on Google Maps. When you arrive, head south on the sidewalk from the bus stop for approx.20m, then turn left into the parking lot then right to head south. The parking lot is fenced and mostly deserted in winter. The pathway leading to the club itself is located in the southeast corner of this parking lot. When you arrive in the southeast corner of the parking lot, you will come to a driveway heading east and a pathway heading south. Head south along that pathway for 5m or so and follow it as it curves right to the main clubhouse door.
If coming by bicycle from points south, know that the entry from Scotia is likely the most pleasant and regularly plowed, and if coming from the northeast, the new pathway on the Chief Peguis bridge is nice. Bike parking is fairly limited in the area around the golf club itself, but it is hidden away and there is lots of chain link fencing and some posts.
