The future of Abbotsford’s Ledgeview Golf Course is looking a little greener.

According to a release sent out by the City of Abbotsford, the Ledgeview Golf Society is making “strong headway towards their vision of becoming the premiere golf course” in the Fraser Valley and has set a goal of making a profit this year.

In 2012, for the first time in the course’s 34 year history, the Ledgeview Golf Society approached the city for financial support in order to continue operations. The city provided $125,000 in financial support to assist the society in reaching its goals.

In September 2012, Ledgeview Golf Society members voted to maintain operations of the course and committed to making operational changes.

“We knew we had to make some changes, and we did,” said society board vice-president, Phil Dodd.

“I’m pleased to announce that we have a strategic goal of showing an operating profit of $75,000 for the 2013 fiscal year – and I believe we are going to hit that goal.”

Mayor Bruce Banman said the city met with the Ledgeview Society Board earlier in the week.

“It was a really positive meeting and I am thrilled to see how quickly the society has regained its financial footing, which is great news for everyone in Abbotsford.”

Ledgeview Golf and Country Club was incorporated under the Societies Act on March 24, 1976. In 2010 the name was changed to Ledgeview Golf Club to reflect a more holistic facility for members, City of Abbotsford residents, as well as tourists and visitors.

The purpose of the non-profit Ledgeview Golf Society is:

a) To ensure that the electors of the City of Abbotsford and their families may have maximum use of public lands set aside for recreation purposes.

b) To provide this particular recreation activity to encourage visitors and tourists to enjoy the City of Abbotsford.

c) To promote for its members and the public, a public golf club, food and beverage facility, and any other public recreation activity which may be conveniently carried on in connection therewith, and to conduct social events for members and public alike.
