It wasn’t a gimme, but after a years-long battle a beloved Canadian golf course has been spared.

The fight to save Glen Abbey Golf Club is officially over and residents in the town of Oakville can finally breathe a sigh of relief.

The province was able to convince the owner of Glen Abbey, home to the Canadian Open, not to level the property and make way for a major housing development.

Oakville mayor Rob Burton confirmed the news on Friday, announcing that the lands of Glen Abbey will be conserved, and thanked Premier Doug Ford, Steve Clark, Municipal Affairs and Housing Minister, and local MPPs Stephen Crawford and Effie Triantafilopoulos for all their support in saving the beloved golf course.

Clark’s office issued a statement on Friday, announcing that the club’s owner ClubLink withdrew their plans for development and will continue to operate Glen Abbey as a golf course.
