The doors may be open­ing soon on a new Coun­try Club. Bid­ding in the sealed auc­tion will close next Thurs­day, April 18th at 5pm on the for­mer Orchard Hills prop­erty that had been owned and oper­ated by Buck­eye Golf Club since 1926.

Pend­ing accep­tance of the court-appointed receiver and approval of the court, the win­ning bid­der will take pos­ses­sion of the 152-plus acre prop­erty, includ­ing the 18-hole course, club house, liquor license and all other equip­ment and per­sonal prop­erty at the for­mer Orchard Hills.

A share­holder group con­sented to judg­ment and fore­clo­sure of Orchard Hills back in Jan­u­ary, list­ing debts of more than $3 mil­lion.

The new owner, accord­ing to the Bryan Times, will have free reign to oper­ate the prop­erty as what­ever they feel they want to do with it. Most likely it will re-open as a golf course and coun­try club again, but legally, the new owner could use it for anything.
