During the late 1990s the developers visited Cape Breton Island and realised its opportunity for the development of tourism. Its striking landscape combined with the charm of the people offered a combination which visitors from all parts of the world could fully appreciate.
A search for a large parcel of land was made and a prime piece of waterfront property surrounding Grand Lake, just outside Louisbourg, was purchased. The historical Fortress of Louisbourg is only a few minutes away and also many of the other landmarks on Cape Breton, including the world famous Cabot Trail can be reached in short distance.
Since then the plan has started to become a reality with ground being broken in 2006 and many world class companies becoming involved, including Sir Nick Faldo with his company, Faldo Design who has designed the championship golf course together with the par 3 golf course.
