“This partnership has evolved naturally. Hockey Canada players and alumni can often be found enjoying the facilities at Predator Ridge during the summer,” said Brad Pelletier, vice-president of Okanagan region at Wesbild Holdings, Predator Ridge’s parent company. “Hockey Canada is one of our most esteemed national brands and Predator Ridge one of Canada’s top golf resorts.
