Rise-ing up in the world

Two companies at the exclusive golfing community known as The Rise in Vernon have announced plans to create a destination resort. The Rise Golf has purchased 25 acres of land adjoining the golf course in order to add a state-of-the-art practice facility and a clubhouse. The practice facility is set to open in 2017. The land was purchased from The Rise Development Ltd. “It’s been a great year at The Rise Golf. We’ve been working to set a solid foundation,” said general manager Ian Renton. “We’re grounded in sustainability, a beautiful and dynamic landscape and innovation. Now, with this new land and a shared vision with The Rise Development, we’re going to expand on that foundation — move forward and create a true destination.” Next to the newly purchased land, the development group is currently building a 36-villa subdivision called Belago. “We’re curating the entire experience,” said Bruce McRitchie, board secretary. “It’s a distinctive place where the sky, land and lake meet. People will want to visit and won’t want to leave.” Meanwhile, a 543 acre parcel of land at The Rise remains up for sale for $24 million, confirmed Marshall MacLeod, vice-president of Colliers International of Vancouver. The land was put up for sale by the Calgary owners last month.
