17.17: Golf Course at Hartney

The golf course at Hartney 1 is typical of many in southwest Manitoba. Consisting of nine holes it is located on the side of the northeast-flowing Souris River 2 from which irrigation water is probably obtained. The fairways can be seen as light-toned linear areas 3 with small dark-toned greens at one end 4.

The town of Hartney is located on either side of the CP railway line 5 with roads parallel 6 and at right angles 7 to the line. Another line (the CN 8) passes south of the town and crosses the Souris River to the west 9.

Also of note on this photo are 1) two prominent abandoned meanders 10; 2) sewage lagoons 11 and the cemetery 12, characteristically located well out of town; 3) PTH 21 13 which bypasses the town to the west; and 4) the fringes of the Lauder Sand Hills partly wooded 14 seen northwest of the Souris River.
