Predator Ridge has entered the major league.

The Vernon golf resort will be Hockey Canada’s summer home for 2012.

“Hockey Canada remains very active in the summer as we prepare our teams, events and programs for the following season,” said Scott Smith, Hoclkey Canada chief operating officer.

“This agreement will allow Hockey Canada to hold a number of events in the spectacular surroundings of Predator Ridge, while working towards a successful 2012-13 season.”

Among  the activities that will be held at Predator Ridge are charity events and meetings with players and sponsors.

“This partnership has evolved naturally. Hockey Canada players and alumni can often be found enjoying the facilities at Predator Ridge during the summer,” said Brad Pelletier, with Predator Ridge.

“Hockey Canada is one of our most esteemed national brands and Predator Ridge one of Canada’s top golf resorts. The partnership will certainly further strengthen both as leaders in their respective markets.”

The partnership has the endorsement of a hockey great.

“As a Vernon resident, Predator Ridge member and long-time supporter of Hockey Canada, I think this partnership offers great potential and I look forward to supporting it through events and legacy programs,” said Ken Holland, Detroit Red Wings general manager.

“The Okanagan has always been a hotbed of both sports and this partnership solidifies that leadership position.”
