Sagebrush was founded in the early 2000’s behind the vision of PGA Tour winner Richard Zokol and Rod Whitman (designer of Cabot Links, the #3 course in all of Canada and #35 golf course in the world, according to Golf Digest). Richard and Rod were guided through construction by noted agronomist – and staunch minimalist advocate – Armen Suny. Recently, to help the club achieve its ultimate vision, highly regarded professionals with experience in real estate development, agronomy, and golf operations have become involved. This new group is working hard to achieve the lofty ambitions to which a project like this can aspire.
Upon its opening, Sagebrush was named the Best New Course in Canada by Golf Digest, and soon thereafter it landed among the Top 10 courses in the country as ranked by ScoreGolf, standing alongside many of Canada’s most storied tracks. What drew attention then remains now, and time has added a maturity that enhances the subtleties of the Whitman | Zokol design. Generous fairways and enormous greens give players a sense of freedom that only links golf can provide, yet the challenges are bountiful. As has been said many times over the years, “The more you care about the history of golf, the more you’ll love Sagebrush.”
In future years, the current amenities will be complemented by full-service on-site dining, additional lodging, a beach/marina experience on Nicola Lake, and, eventually, a limited number of custom homesites. Details on amenities and future real estate opportunities are yet to be released.
For now, the team’s focus is singular – make Sagebrush Golf & Sporting Club the most memorable, can’t miss, must play golf experience in Canada. Sound bold? It is. But thanks to the breathtaking setting, the incredible golf architecture, and the team that cares every day, it’s also achievable.
