In a reply filed in small claims court last week, Bighorn Golf and Country Club said the amount owed is actually less than $9,000.

The reply also notes the fact Bighorn paid more than $8,700 to Sun Rivers in November, stating a “complete intention to resolve and pay the disputed claim amount.”

Bighorn has proposed repaying the sum between April and August using 2020 golf revenues.

In November 2017, Bighorn purchased what was then Sun Rivers Golf Club and Hoodoos restaurant from Sun Rivers Limited Partnership for a reported $3 million — half of which was said to have been funded by $5,000 shares purchased largely by Sun Rivers residents and golfers.

The golf course was rebranded Bighorn in early 2018. Last year, the restaurant was sold to another party not involved in the Sun Rivers-Bighorn dispute.

That party is now running the restaurant, called Mason’s.

The file will now be reviewed by a provincial court judge, who will determine the next step in the process.
