More information about Pheasantback Golf and County Club going into receivership is expected next week.

MNP Ltd. (Meyers Norris Penny) of Edmonton was appointed receiver of Rise Resources Group, under Jim Risler.

Risler declined to provide any information or comment when contacted Monday, stating that he wouldn’t provide information while the issue remains in litigation. But he said he plans to release a statement later this week.

A request for information from the receiver was also denied when Karen Aylward told the Independent that the company doesn’t comment to the media nor provide information on those types of matters.

Since the course opened north of Stettler in 1995, Pheasantback has become a highly-rated golf destination. It was ranked as one of the top-10 courses to play in Alberta and one of the top 100 in Canada.
