New ownership group at Elk Ridge Resort working to leave lasting mark – Saskatoon | Globalnews.ca

The new ownership group of the Elk Ridge Resort is looking to leave a lasting mark on the resort and golf course.

The new group is comprised of eight owners, all from Saskatchewan, called Route2SK Inc. One of the owners says it had to be a group of Saskatchewan folk taking over Elk Ridge.

“Forward-moving. A really good mindset. We have done a lot of work, a ton of work and we’re not done yet,” said Managing Partner, Ryan Danberg.

The resort is just outside Waskesiu in the Prince Albert National Park in northern Saskatchewan.

Elk Ridge has signed a multi-year deal with PGA Tour Canada to host events through 2028.

The organization cancelled a recent tournament due to excessive rainfall waterlogging the course, but the owners ponied up $40,000 for over 100 golfers. The winner, Cooper Dossey, from Austin, Texas, won $7,200 for shooting the best round of 62. There were also five golfers who split a pot of $3,000 for shooting an eagle on the 18th hole.
