Crown Isle acquires Longlands Golf Course

The Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community just got a little bit bigger, after purchasing the Longlands Golf Course last month.

Longlands is an 18-hole, par-3 course located on Anderton Road, just outside Comox in Area B. The 75-acre property had been for sale since late 2016.

Crown Isle’s director of real estate, Jason Andrew, said the purchase of Longlands made sense for Crown Isle.

“It’s just another addition to what we already do,” he said. “It borders our property, it makes the most sense for some of the things we’re doing.”

Andrew said Crown Isle does not intend to turn Longlands into a housing development and that the day-to-day running of the course will continue as per usual.

“We’re basically going to run it as the par-3 course at this point in time,” he said, adding the Longlands name will remain for now.

“I know everyone is afraid we’re going to [change] everything and turn it into a housing development, but we’re not,” he added. “Who knows what will happen 10, 15, 20, 25 years down the road, but at this point, we’re just adding it in as another opportunity to enjoy the Comox Valley.”

Longlands manager Donna Brown said the course has roughly 100 regular members, as well as several others who golf there sporadically.

“This is a great little course,” she said. “Awesome for going up and making your game a little sharper. We get lots of groups of children here, and then the older generation who can’t do Crown Isle anymore, who are looking to do something a little shorter and a little easier.”

While neither Andrew nor Brown could confirm the price, ventureconnect.ca had the property listed for $3.25 million.
