He named the property Angus Glen Farm, where he raised Black Aberdeen Angus cattle and champion thoroughbreds. Later it grew to 1800 acres, and became his home. In 1967 he began breeding thoroughbred race horses. For more than two decades, Angus Glen bred horses which achieved racing success both in Canada and internationally; including twelve stakes winners, most notably Talkin" Man, Kennedy Road and Laurie's Dancer.
After years touring the farmlands, Arthur Stollery, an avid golfer, began building a golf course in 1992, on some of the original horse paddocks, and in the valley where Black Angus cattle once grazed. Parts of the original farm, which still operates, can be seen adjacent to many of the golf holes. Arthur Stollery passed away in 1994, but the Stollery family completed his masterpiece and the course opened to the public in 1995. That year, Golf Digest magazine ranked Angus Glen as the Best New Course in Canada.
In 1996 Gordon Stollery took the vision of his father one step further by building a community around Angus Glen Golf Club. During the building of the community Angus Glen acquired Kylemore homes which strives to build quality homes, while "Exceeding Excellence". Continuing the tradition of excellence, Angus Glen is known for its outstanding personal service. Angus Glen provides golfers with the experience of a first class private golf club within a public facility, accessible to all.
Gordon Stollery adds, "Angus Glen Community and the Golf Course symbolize what my father always strove to achieve... excellence while remembering his roots."
