Consistent with Richmond’s history, the Mylora Golf Courses occupy land that was once utilized for agricultural purposes. The current owners have a long history with this property, with their ownership dating back to 1938 when farming commenced on the property. The family employed organic farming practices on this property throughout its history and sold the organic produce locally at their roadside stand and more broadly through Woodward’s Specialty Food Stores throughout BC and Alberta. In 1958, Highway 99 was constructed. The highway dissected the property into two smaller parcels, which made farming less economically viable. The property’s eventual use as a golf course started in 1976.
The Sidaway property consists of a single legal title of 37.48 acres. Rectangular in shape, the course provides for 1,271 feet of frontage on Sidaway Road and 1,892 feet of depth. The rear of the property borders Highway 99, and offers excellent visual exposure. The course has been contoured somewhat to provide added difficulty to the golfing experience, however, it has an otherwise level topography.
