It has been confirmed that Kelowna Springs Golf Course will continue to operate for one more season.
Denciti Development Group issued a statement Tuesday morning, saying the 18-hole golf course will continue to operate until the end of the 2024 season.
“We'd like to thank Ian Robertson for placing his trust in us and renewing his lease until the end of the 2024 season,” said Denciti Group CEO Garry Fawley.
Denciti Group purchased the 106-acre property in February and Fawley told KelownaNow that the intent was to buy land with industrial potential,
The purchase happened after Kelowna City Council decided in August 2022 to keep the future land use designated as industrial.
However, Kelowna council changed the land designation back to private recreational last month.
During that meeting, Fawley and Volodya Gusak, president of Denciti, pitched a nine-hole golf course.
This would be accomplished by a split land use designation with half the property remaining as a golf course (only smaller) and the other half being designated for industrial uses.
However, Fawley and Gusak told council the transition from the existing 18-hole to the proposed nine-hole course would have to happen within the next year and would require more input from council and the public.
“Our next step involves putting forward a collaborative and thorough concept for the property that finds a balance between recreational use and Kelowna’s need for industrial land,” Fawley adds.
“We believe through open dialogue and constructive engagement, we can find a solution that contributes positively to the community as a whole.”
