Notice of Disposition and Assistance: Sunstone Golf Course

Posted on February 16, 2024

In accordance with Sections 24 and 26 of the Community Charter, the Council of the Village of Pemberton hereby provides notice of its intent to lease the land and improvements at the Sunstone Golf Course located at 1730 Airport Road, Pemberton, British Columbia, and legally described as PID: 023-948-108, DISTRICT LOT 8750 LILLOOET DISTRICT and PID: 024-111-619, DISTRICT LOT 8751 LILLOOET DISTRICT (the “Golf Course”) to SUNSTONE RANCH GOLF COURSE LTD. (“Sunstone”).

The agreement between the Village and Sunstone will be for a term of 10 years ending on or before December 31st, 2033, subject to earlier termination under the terms of the agreement with an option to extend for two additional terms of 10 years each. Sunstone will pay nominal basic rent and will be responsible for all other costs relating to the operation and maintenance of the Golf Course.

Under the agreement, Sunstone will operate, maintain and manage the Golf Course and will set fees and dues for playing golf on the Golf Course. Sunstone may generate and retain income from operating and maintaining the Golf Course. During the off-season (which, for greater certainty, is the period of approximately 28 weeks between October 15 and April 15 when the Golf Course is closed), Sunstone will be open to maintaining groomed ski runs as the winter season allows for Nordic skiing purposes by members of the public. Sunstone will also host charity golf tournaments and other special events annually at the Golf Course in its reasonable discretion and proactively work with local Pemberton Valley charities and community non-profit organizations to support their fundraising efforts. Sunstone will also offer discounted passes and programming options for youth and low-income families at the Golf Course and will also provide venues at the Golf Course for community special events on a free or non-profit basis.

In consideration of the services provided by Sunstone, the Village may provide assistance as defined by the Community Charter (BC) to Sunstone.
