Welcome to our website!
Here you will find information on the project we are developing. It is really too early for bookings! Right now Chinook Ridge Lodge is only a concept. We achieved land re-designation on November 6th, 2012. We are currently working on drawings for the cozy Country Inn that looks like a hip-roofed barn. The 'hay loft' area will contain 21 guest rooms, a banquet room with kitchen on the main floor, and the lower/walk-out level will feature his & her spas, a snack bar/lounge, meeting rooms and a small pro shop. A professionally designed golf course - the work of Rod Whitman (www.RodWhitman.com) who designed Cabot Links named by Golf Inc. magazine "Development of the Year 2012" Our course doubles as landscape and recreation for both guests and the local community.
Our intentions are to use the most environmentally friendly products, systems and building materials available. These two facets of the development (Inn and Course) are married for ecological benefit. The Lodge requires water for guest's use and for cleaning. Effluent from the Lodge must be disposed of and the irrigation system provides an excellent disposal field (after treatment). This provides a perfect solution as a golf course requires moisture. A perfect match! We hope to use the KISSS irrigation system which provides moisture directly to the root zone reducing the amount of moisture required by 70% over conventional spray irrigation systems.
We decided to develop this website to help all interested parties keep track of what we are up to and learn about the various issues in developing a retreat/recreation facility like this. Our Redesignation Hearing went before Rocky View Councillors on November 6, 2012. It was APPROVED by a 7 to 2 vote. Each new milestone we approach and goal we accomplish will be posted here. It is a lot like watching a pot boil, it seems to take forever for each phase to be worked through. Please bear with us, cheer for us and look forward to a great place to eat, play and relax with friends & family. Whether you are near or far keep us in mind for your next tournament, corporate retreat or family function. Sign up for our Blog RSS feed, our tweets or find us on Facebook where we will post information on the various stages of development including the construction tendering phase. Later stay tuned for special events which may take the form of dinner theatre, special theme dinners, performances or charitable events.
