Canada to get first cannabis-themed golf course

The new owner of the former Lombard Glen Golf and Country Club has announced that, in accordance with new national law in Canada, smoking marijuana will be allowed on the newly renamed Rolling Greens.

While public consumption of marijuana is still banned in many parts of Canada by provincial or local legislation, privately owned golf courses are largely allowed to set their own policy – although this means that only those 19 and older are allowed entry, according to an article in the Toronto Sun newspaper.

The new owners told the newspaper they’re also considering adding a pot-themed miniature golf course, an expanded patio, and offering live music.

The 164-acre 18-hole course was first opened 53 years ago, and until earlier this year was owned and operated by the Sherman family, who purchased it in 1997.
