Orchard Hills News

This Sun­day, local golfers will cel­e­brate a re-birth. Orchard Hills is reopen­ing Sun­day with lim­ited ser­vices. A grand pub­lic re-opening cel­e­bra­tion is now sched­uled for August 15th.
The Bryan Times reports that the course will employ the same staff as when it was shut down due to crush­ing debt and a fore­clo­sure that took effect ear­lier this year.
Rick Ander­son bought the club by sealed bid in a pri­vate auc­tion in Feb­ru­ary. He paid just over one mil­lion dol­lars for it and has since invested another $200,000.
Ander­son says a con­sul­tant advised him to change the name, but he refused. It will always be Orchard Hills.
Although the course will remain the same, changes are on the draw­ing board for the club­house, and the bar won’t yet be open, although they’re work­ing on that.
If you want to play Sun­day, call ahead, 419–630-0111, and make a reservation.
