In light of a recent article in the Brandon Sun regarding the Wheat City Golf Course, the City of Brandon would like to take this opportunity to update the community about the continued direction of this very important public recreational and greenspace amenity.
Since the severe flooding experienced at the facility in 2011, the Wheat City Golf Course has been through a tremendous transformation to ensure that it can provide an affordable golfing option for the entire community, no matter their individual skill level.
Dedicated city staff have spent many months of hard work since the floodwaters of 2011 subsided to restore the course’s greens, drainage and fairways to the exceptional pre-flood conditions.
The City of Brandon subsequently hosted a successful tour of the course in October 2012, during which a large number of people toured the grounds and provided very positive feedback after witnessing the results of this incredible remediation work.
We look forward to opening our restored course to the public in the next few weeks and we encourage all members of the public to see for themselves the vast amount of work and dedication our staff have put in to ensure an enjoyable golfing experience is provided for all.
The City of Brandon and its council remains committed to providing the public with this recreational opportunity, which includes not only a fully accessible golf course and pro shop, but a four-court tennis facility, groomed winter sport trails, toboggan hill and seasonal walking paths for all the citizens of Brandon.
The City of Brandon strongly believes that the Wheat City Golf Course facility, much like all our other recreational amenities, contributes to the overall quality of life in our community. As such, we are open to exploring new ideas and partnerships as we continue to grow the facility into the future.
