Sun Rivers Golf Course has been sold and that should be good news for golfers starting next season.
Sun Rivers Partners announced Monday morning, Sept. 12, that Ranchero Enterprises, a local investor, has signed a letter of intent to buy the golf course.
The investor’s team, lead by Bill Amy, is working out implementation details of a future expansion plan that includes a 6-hole par 3 golf course, renovated sand bunkers, Pickleball courts and Hoodoos renovations.
“New investment and expanded facilities is exactly what is needed to broaden the appeal of the golf course,” said Leslie Brochu, vice-president of marketing at Sun Rivers. “This is such a great vote of confidence in the community of Sun Rivers and the Kamloops region as a whole. Just imagine the synergy of par 3 players and Pickleball players coming out to join the championship golfers at Sun Rivers.”
The pending sale includes a very exciting future expansion plan that increases the lifestyle options for those already living at Sun Rivers and provides just that many more reasons to visit and buy at Sun Rivers, she added.
“Where else can you find this caliber of championship golf in such a unique natural setting and only five minutes from an urban centre,” Amy said. “It just doesn’t exist. After consulting with experienced golfers and different golf facilities all over Canada and the U.S., it is clear this is a great opportunity to take an already superb championship golf course and surround it with additional amenities to appeal to a broader market. “
They expect that the sale will close in late October, Amy said.
An early-bird membership offering will be announced within the next two days and, weather permitting, improvements to the golf course will start immediately following the seasonal shut down.
