Aspotogan Ridge Golf And Country Club is back “on course”

Funding was secured in May of 2014 to complete construction of the 558 acre, 18 hole championship golf course, club house and 400+ home residential development located near Hubbard’s, N.S., at Mill Cove.

Aspotogan Developments President “Barry Publicover” is pleased to announce construction at the Mill Cove site resumed on Monday, June 2nd.  The construction crews have worked full time to reshape, prepare, irrigate, top soil and seed the front nine holes. Grow in on the front nine holes is underway and looking great! We plan to be playing golf on 9 holes as soon as summer 2015. Crews are now clearing and roughing in the back nine and plan to work until mid December to insure the completion of the full 18 holes by the Fall of 2015.

The Aspotogan Ridge Golf course was designed by Rob Leblanc of “Robert LeBlanc Golf Architects”. The golf course development was originally started in 2007, but was placed on hold in 2008 because of the world wide recession. Publicover has secured funding from a Belgium group who have embraced his vision and who are committed to see the project including the 18 hole course, club house and residential development through to completion.

Our focus is to create an affordable Lifestyle community offering a full range of options for all levels of housing. The residential development, located 25 minutes from Halifax, will consist of Estate homes on one acre+ lots, single level bungalows on slabs with attached garages with no maintenance for the 50+ group, starter homes for young families & townhouse units. “We are currently working towards incorporating an extended care facility which would allow residents of the Development to stay in the area and not have to worry about being sent away from their friends and families when they are no longer able to live on their own”.

Aspotogan Developments Limited has secured Rob Calder of Canadian golf Aspects Inc., from Ontario to oversee construction of the golf course. He and his team of specialists along with local workers have done an excellent job for us and we could not be more impressed with the results. “When working on a project of this scope it is always best to enlist the services of proven professionals”, Mr Publicover said.

To date 18 lots have been sold and 24 lots are approved and now on the market. We have enlisted the Donna Harding Real Estate Team to market the homes and lots both locally and internationally.  Our Phase 1 lots sold immediately as well as many of the lots in Phase 2. Phase 2 & 3 lots are now available.  Phase 4 design is nearing completion and we will bring it on stream early next year.
