Oak Island Golf Course Sold???

I just heard from a buddy that Oak Island golf course was sold to The Mulligans owners?? I hope that is not true. I am relatively new to Brandon and I enjoyed playing golf in Oak Island the last couple years and I thought the course and service were improving. I cannot say the same about my Mulligans Driving Range experiences and I just hope it isnt true. If it is true I will be playing more golf elsewhere.  
 
Does anyone know what the story is?

Not sold. The owners leased it to Mulligan's owner to run it. Not sure for how long though but hopefully, a better experience. Stay positive my friend.

Oak Island

I have never had a bad experience at Oak Island. In my opinion its one of the nicest courses around. Its by far nicer then the Wheat City, Glen Lea and Shilo. Last year i was a member at the Wheat city and im sure i will be again this year. Oak Island is just a little to far for me. Minnedosa and Neepawa are also very nice courses just wish they were a bit closer to us.  
 
What can we expect out of the new people running the course?

I've never had a bad experience dealing with the guys at Mulligan's. I don't spend a whole lot of time on the range but when I do it's the one I go to normally.

Oak Island

One of my favorite courses. I wouldn't say that its that much nicer than Shilo though. Shilo is always in excellant condition.  
 
I have found the service/attitudes at Oak Island much better lately than when they first opened. My first time there one of our group commented that their green fees were expensive, the guy at the counter said "What do you expect for the nicest course in Manitoba?" They acted like they were doing you a favour letting you play their course. As I said its been alot better lately.

I have always had great experiences at both Mulligan's and Oak Island. I can imagine the nice experience will continue and I am looking forward to golfing Oak and practicing at Mulligan's again this coming season

Gotta agree with the first half of your post. Shilo is always in top condition and I would say is as good as any 18 in Westman.  
 
Don't get me wrong I like Oak Island enough, although I rarely play it (haven't since 2015). I think they should start on the north 9 rather than the south, it makes more sense to me to do that. And no matter what it seems you'll always find the first par 5 on the front and the back (the 2 that run along the water) are in rough shape.
