Within the following 10 years the course was completely redesigned by Bill Brinkworth. At the time of the redesign, Elmwood (which lies alongside Swift Current Creek) was reported to be one of the premier 18 hole layouts in Western Canada. Through the many years since that time, this beautiful course has lost none of its grandeur. Much more difficult than it first appears, Elmwood makes creative theme of the hilly and well treed landscape that runs alongside the creek. Twice golfers are required to cross the creek and, in many other instances, account for it in their shot planning.
