Golf club gains ground

The Glengarry News - - News - -- Angela Brown

North Glen­garry is giv­ing the Glen­garry Golf and Coun­try Club in Alexan­dria more room by giv­ing it a por­tion of a three-acre piece of sur­plus land on the east end of Lins­ley Street East, sit­u­ated west of the course. At last Wed­nes­day’s meet­ing, coun­cil ap­proved sell­ing for a nom­i­nal fee the land which will be im­proved and main­tained by the club. The town­ship had taken own­er­ship of the land af­ter a house at the east end of Lins­ley Street East was de­stroyed in a fire.

Golf cart paths and tee-off ar­eas en­croach onto the land, which will be sev­ered from the three acres be­fore the trans­ac­tion can be fi­nal­ized. In the in­terim, to en­able the club to use the prop­erty as soon as pos­si­ble, the mu­nic­i­pal­ity will rent the land to the golf club. CAO Daniel Gagnon will re­turn to coun­cil with a draft for a 20-year agree­ment.
