Back in June of 2016 bdnmb.ca discovered and introduced our followers to Crow’s General Store, a hidden gem that is a must see for locals and out of towners alike. The following morning cars, and people, lined up to see what has now become one of Brandon’s top tourist attractions. Based on the popularity of that one article other media outlets, both local and from across the Province, descended on the property to provide Crow’s with the coverage it so richly deserved.

Fast forward years later and there have been numerous changes/additions/alterations to the property and the building. The biggest of those changes taking place this week-the opening of a mini golf course. Owner Don Ditchfield told bdnmb.ca that the idea for a mini golf course has been in the plans for several years now. Presently there is 9-holes available to play and the cost is only $5. Ditchfield went on to say that he is looking to expand to 18-holes over the summer as time permits. He already has the space and materials, he just needs to free up the time.
Just like the ice cream shop, the mini golf course features a number of challenging obstacles Don has collected over the years. To hear it from Don himself, each item is a story onto itself. Crow’s is located at 33-17th St. East (just up the street around the corner from the Greenspot) in Brandon.
