Residents fight to save Kanata Golf Club

By CTV News Ottawa, December 19, 2018

Residents are fighting back at proposal to have Kanata Lakes Golf Club demolished.

The mood is anything but festive around the table at Janice Lane's home along the 175-acre club; Lane said she paid a premium for the property several decades ago.

Passing around a petition Lane and her friends spent much of their christmas luncheon getting ready for a fight. "We love it here and we love it because of the golf course" said Lane.

The group, is one of many in the area, asking the city to stop Clublink from turning their community into thousands of houses; disregarding the decades-old agreement between the city and owners of the club guaranteeing it remain protected greenspace. Clublink, owners and operators of the club have expressed interest in developing the area with local partners Richcraft Homes and Minto Communities.
