Sorry folks, I neglected to say that this shot was taken in Kananakis country an hours drive from Calgary, Alberta. A great area for hiking, camping, cross country and downhill skiing..................and golfing! As always, thank you for your kind comments and for your visits to my site.
EDMONTON - Alberta's Wildrose party says Premier Jim Prentice needs to come clean on a contract for the publicly owned Kananaskis Country Golf Course.

The party says in a news release that the contract to repair the flood-damaged course needs to be made public because of questions surrounding it.

The deal, signed last July, has seen more than $5 million being paid to a private operator to cover expenses and losses after the 36-hole course was damaged by extensive flooding.

The operator, Kan-Alta Golf Management Ltd., is a donor to the governing Progressive Conservatives.

When the deal made headlines last month, Prentice ordered a stop to all payments ahead of an independent review.

Prentice says it's not appropriate for the province to be in — quote —"the golf course business."
