Predator Ridge Golf
Resort in Vernon, BC
40' W X 170' L
Ridge Golf Resort is a public 27-hole golf resort and
residential community located in the Okanagan Valley in
beautiful British Columbia. This fully operational resort
opened in 1991 and is consistently awarded for being the top
resort and public facility in BC and Western Canada.
Predator Ridge has hosted many tournaments including the
Export A Skins Game with Mike Weir, Phil Mickelson, Fred
Couples and Sergio Garcia.
In 2002, it was determined that a storage facility was
required to keep the electrical carts indoors and protected
from the elements. Predator Ridge chose a tension fabric
building as their facility solution. The pre-engineered,
clear-span design allows maximum use of space and the cover
allows natural light to flow through illuminating every
corner of the building.
"We refer to the fabric
building as our cart barn," explains Brad
Burgart, Director of Golf. "At full capacity, we are able to
hold 124 power carts inside this facility with every cart
having one electric charger." There is also a wash bay
located inside where the carts are washed.
The green color selected for the 40' wide x 170' long fabric
building blends in well with the surrounding environment at
Predator Ridge. Fabric buildings can be customized to
incorporate not only colors but ventilation, doors and end
walls, and foundation options to meet any application.
"The installation of the building went very smooth and it
has been maintenance free," states Burgart. The fabric building is
semi-permanent and as the resort continues to expand, the
building can be easily expanded or relocated. "Our
fabric covered building
is a very good structure," says Burgart. "It does exactly
what it needs to do- it keeps everything dry and clean."
"At full capacity, we
are able to hold 124 power carts inside
with every cart having one electric
charger," says Burgart.
