A private development company out of Calgary has expressed interest in running the Revelstoke Golf Course.

Few details are available yet, beyond information in an advertisement in the April 1 Times Review announcing a club meeting at the community centre on Wednesday, Apr. 8, at 7 p.m. where the developer intends on presenting his plans for the golf course.

“The City of Revelstoke and the Executive of the Revelstoke Golf Club have been approached by a private company from Calgary which is interested in exploring the opportunity of operating the Revelstoke Golf Club,” states the ad. “Representatives of the company would like to make a presentation to the general membership of the club to answer their questions and solicit input.”

The Times Review contacted numerous people at the city and the club to find out more, however little information was provided.

“They’re looking at coming in and taking over the management of the golf course,” said Heather Duchman, the president of the golf club.

Duchman said to contact Alan Mason, the city’s director of economic development, for more information, however he could not be reached.

“It’s interesting and we’re having the members come out and listening to the presentation,” said Duchman. “Whatever comes forward, we (the board) have a responsibility to look at it.”

The name of the company is not yet known.

“Council has chosen to listen to it when the golf course listens to it,” said acting-Mayor Linda Nixon.

The Revelstoke Golf Club currently operates the Revelstoke Golf Course through a lease agreement with the city. It has been going through difficult times in recent years and efforts are being made to improve the club’s finances and the course’s sustainability.
