The City of Winnipeg’s Crescent Drive Golf Course is getting the spa treatment sometime next year.

The city announced Tuesday it successfully wooed a top-rated Quebec-based spa franchise to open a new location, its first franchise in Canada outside Quebec, at the city-owned links.

Nordik Spa-Nature has agreed to build a $6-million spa at Crescent Drive Golf Course, which the city is sure will make the golf course a tourist attraction as well as giving an economic boost. The spa comes with 50 permanent full-time jobs and 50 contract jobs, the city’s announcement said.

Handout Quebec firm Nordik Spa-Nature specializes in Scandinavian-style spas, such as this one in Chelsea, Que., and is opening a spa at Crescent Drive Golf Course in Winnipeg.

The original Nordik Spa-Nature is located in Chelsea, Que. and since its opening in 2005, it has won accolades and awards, including being named one of Canada’s 10 best spas by The National Post.

The new Winnipeg spa is slated to open in 2012, the result of a two-year business courtship to lure the Quebec business to open a franchise on the prairies.

The city’s business development initiative called YES! Winnipeg teamed up with ANIM, Manitoba’s bilingual trade agency to land the spa deal for the golf course.
