Sagebrush Golf Club in Merritt, B.C., is accepting golfers for a soft opening this summer and fall.
Sagebrush was designed by the team of Richard Zokol, agronomist Armen Suny, and Rod Whitman. It was dormant for years before a small group of local investors, headed by Andrew Knott, began reinvesting millions
Sagebrush, with a new website here, is accepting reservation requests for an August soft opening as the club reinvests and builds out its amenities.
This is a test phase for the club, as it works to finalize its amenities and understand what golfers want from the facility.
The facility will offer a day rate that will include a round, on-course lunch, refreshments, a chance to fly-fish and more golf, if so desired.
“We’re thrilled to be able to put Sagebrush back on the path Richard Zokol envisioned for the course when he designed it,” said Knott. “With a great leadership team, along with investing in a clubhouse and on-site accommodations, we will offer an experience that is entirely unique to public golf in Canada.”
Designed to offer a grand vistas and an intriguing shot options mix, Sagebrush opened in 2009.
The reinvestment will continue in coming years, including the development of a new clubhouse and resort area and real estate offerings.
“Golfers have anxiously awaited the return of Sagebrush for several years now,” said general manager Mark Strong.
“As a proud member of the team, but even more so as a golfer myself, I’m incredibly thrilled to get players back onto such an unforgettable course. We have no doubt that those who join us will have a memorable time—golfers will replay the experiences of Sagebrush in their memories. It really is a special place,” he said.
