One of the finest golf courses in Manitoba, this course is challenging yet responsive and fair for all caliber of golfer. Built along the escarpment of the Whitemud River, the natural beauty of this course is second to none. The well-established trees and beautiful terrain is enhanced by the winding river. The breathtaking views from the elevated tees is reason enough to visit. Take time to admire the scenery and you may be lucky enough to spot some of the wildlife inhabiting our course. Judges from the Communities in Bloom in 2003 state “The golf course has undergone a huge expansion that has been carefully done to preserve the natural beauty of the area.” Judges also cited under environmental awareness, “That the natural habitat is being protected with careful planning and professional management of the entire golf course property.”

The Roxy Theatre, originally built as the Neepawa Opera House, one of Manitoba's oldest entertainment establishments. Construction began in 1905 after the town's first opera house had been destroyed by fire. By early spring the next year, it became operational. The new Opera House established itself as the social hub of the community. Its stage was home to vaudeville, burlesque, silent movies, talkies, victory drives, and of course, operas. It also housed many political debates and appearances by politicians such as Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King and Manitoba Premier John Bracken.
By the early 1930s, the Opera House had been converted to the Roxy Theatre. But over the years, changes affecting leisure activity, especially the advent of television, made it difficult to maintain interest in the theatre. The theatre had been closed for several years before it reopened in July 1988 under the administration of the Neepawa Theatre Center (NTC).
