Oakville council blocks Glen Abbey development bid
City councilors in Oakville, Ont. voted unanimously against development plans on Glen Abbey Golf Course, on Sept. 27. The development plan outlined by course owner, Clublink, would see the construction of 141 detached homes, 299 townhomes and 2,782 apartments in the Toronto suburb. Instead, councillors are vying to have the lands protected under Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act. Glen Abby was designed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus in 1976, and has been home to 25 Canadian Championship PGA events, more than any other course.
