The story of the Kingsland New Lands (KNWL) land is one that will live in the annals of Kingsland history.
Kingsland, Ontario’s first and only privately owned golf course, was opened in 1905, but by 1925 the Kingslands golf course was overgrown and it was only partially operational.
In the meantime, the golf course fell into disrepair and eventually closed in 1962.
The KNWL became the subject of a lawsuit in 1986 that ultimately awarded $3.5 million in damages to a retired Kingsland golf instructor who was severely injured when he fell from a building.
In 2004, a group of Kingslanders, along with several residents of the nearby town of Sault Ste.
Marie, were granted a “permanent injunction” that gave them an exclusive right to use the Kings Land for golf courses.
The injunction was upheld by a Quebec Court of Appeal, which also awarded $2.2 million in compensatory damages to the residents of Saults Ste.
Marie and $250,000 in compensating damages to KNWl.
A decade later, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that KNWI could continue to use KNW’s land in the Kings Lands for golfing, but that it had to make the property accessible to pedestrians, bicyclists and other modes of transportation.
In 2014, the court ruled that the KNW lands “have always been an important part of the City of Kingsville’s identity, heritage and economy, and therefore they are entitled to the same rights as any other private property.”
In 2017, KNW was awarded $1.9 million by the City in a separate lawsuit that claimed that the Kings lands were “a public resource,” which means they should be protected from private use.
In 2017 the City was awarded another $1 million in compensation.
The lawsuit that brought KNW to the fore also claimed that Kingsland is a “national heritage site” that is protected under the Land Title Act.
The city of Kingsburg, Ontario, was ordered to pay $25,000 to the plaintiffs.
The Kingsland Golf Course is now closed.
The new Kingsland lands in Kingsland are now the KingsLand Golf Course, the KingsRoads Golf Course and the KingsPark Golf Course.
