    Growing numbers of golfers come every year to gaze in awe at the world’s mightiest waterfalls and play the celebrated trio of courses that helped the Niagara Peninsula blossom into one of North America’s hottest and most unique golf destinations.

    Operated by Niagara Parks Golf, the two championship courses at the $27-million Legends on the Niagara complex, together with the Stanley Thompson-designed Whirlpool Golf Course, have become as essential to life and tourism on the peninsula as the award-winning wineries, War of 1812 battlefields, and theatre offerings of the Shaw Festival.

    Launched to rave reviews in 2002, Legends on the Niagara is one of the showpieces of the Canadian game. Niagara Parks Golf recruited two of the country’s top golf architects, Doug Carrick and Thomas McBroom, to design sister 18-hole courses.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Marineland’s eighth lawsuit since 2012 is seeking $600,000 in damages from a Vancouver publication for a story it claims is “indifferent to the truth.”

    The park is seeking $500,000 for defamation and $100,000 in punitive damages from the weekly Georgia Straight and writer Travis Lupick for an article published and posted online April 28 titled ‘Vancouver Aquarium seals left blind or dead after transfer to Marineland.’

    The article’s title has since been amended to ‘Vancouver Aquarium seals allegedly left blind or dead after transfer to other facility.’
