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.
