Apes Hill Adds Nine More Holes
Prime Minister David Thompson officially opened the new 18-hole golf course at Apes Hill yesterday. Nine holes were opened this time last year so this opening represents the opening of the remaining nine holes completed this year. The clubhouse is yet to be built but we are told a temporary one will soon be in place. From some of the comments made yesterday it is now clear that the residential component of the development never reached anywhere near to rosy picture painted by the developers even before the current recession. That fact has not stopped the developers from launching a new round hubris and hyperbole trying to sell the property. They are already calling the course "one of the best in the world." Don't laugh, at least it has come a long way from a COW pasture.
