ORCHARD HILLS CLOSE TO RE-OPENING UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP. — THIS TIME IT WILL LIKELY BE PUBLIC

Orchard Hills could be open within the month. And it’s look­ing as though the course will be open to every­one, as a pub­lic course.

Richard Ander­son of Mont­pe­lier con­firmed Thurs­day that he is the one who pur­chased the prop­erty in last month’s sealed auc­tion for a lit­tle over one mil­lion dol­lars.

Anderson’s sealed bid was one of only two which met all require­ments.

Ander­son told the Bryan Times that he hopes to open the golf course within a few days after the sale is final­ized, and that is likely no more than three days away now.

Ander­son said the best bet to make Orchard Hills a finan­cial suc­cess is to open it for pub­lic use.

Ander­son told the Times he plans to hire many of the same employ­ees it had prior to its clo­sure.

Buck­eye Golf Club Com­pany had owned Orchard Hills since it opened in 1926. The group con­sented to judg­ment and fore­clo­sure in Jan­u­ary after fac­ing a debt in excess of $3 million.
