Field of Dreams


Give Ross Sheard credit he isn’t thinking small.

The Sheard family owned and operated the local McDonalds plus the operations in Neepawa and Portage.  Roughly 12 months ago they sold those restaurants and now Ross said to himself “hey I have an idea”.  Why not build a huge golf driving range plus a bar and restaurant.

Here is the concept, let’s buy 17 acres of land near the Trans Canada Highway about 3 kilometers west of Brandon.  Then develop this huge chunk of land into something similar to the chain Top Golf.  Give the people of Brandon and Western Manitoba something totally different and unique.

Sheard told BDNMB.CA today that he feels people have nothing to do in Brandon other that maybe a Wheat Kings game or bowling.  “This will be a real sports bar as well.”

Shanks Driving Range and Grill is expected to open within 12 months and also of note they will use all local suppliers and contractors in the development of the property.

Stay tuned for more news on this exciting project.
