HISTORY OF THE CLUB
In 1991, Granite Springs Golf Club's grand opening was the talk-of-the-town with its two-story cedar log cabin style clubhouse in Nova Scotia. The project was owned by King Valley Development Corporation, the equally impressive King Valley Golf Club owner in Ontario.
In its advertisement, the managers said it was "an effort which no compromises have been made, no corners cut." The finished course was just superb and lived up to its description in the advertisement. It had granite outcroppings almost everywhere and with 42 spring-fed ponds on its forested acres. The strength of its layout placed it among the upper echelon of Canadian golf courses.
After much anticipation, a grand ceremony was held on September 21st, 1991. Over a hundred guests honoured this great event with their presence and were treated like kings and queens in a memorable Black-Tie event. According to reports of the festivities, there was plenty of sumptuous food, local entertainment, and, of course, various golf-related activities. To date, members continue to enjoy these activities and treats at Granite Springs.
Since that time, the Club has experienced three changes in ownership with the current owner being affiliated with a Shanghai-based real estate group, Dongdu International since 2016. During the last five years, the ownership and management have invested a considerable amount of time, money and effort to improve the golf course, clubhouse and overall experience for the members and guests. It will continue the transformation of the Club into a very lively and prosperous club and as we start 2023 with a membership base larger than it has ever been and an event calendar which is filled with events and tournaments for the whole family, the management is looking forward to serving everyone this year.
As noted above, 2023 marks the 30th anniversary of Granite Springs and the management is excited to be part of such a memorable year and look forward to serving its members and guests in this auspicious year with numerous events planned around the anniversary.
