Unfortunately, the financial strain caused by the 1929 Stock Market crash created conditions that only allowed for the completion of 9 holes which today meanders on 70 acres of the original property. There is an additional 58 acres , now known affectionately as “The Back 40”, to the North and East of the current course. In 1991 this portion of the property was protected with a 99 year “Declaration of Conditions, Covenants and Restrictions” that ensure it will remain open space for potential expansion of the golf course in the future.
Prominent Country Club Estates resident and developer Arthur Jensen and wife Ruth were fond of saying, “None of us own the land, we are all simply trustees for the next generation”. It is this kind of thoughtfulness and care that makes Country Club Estates a great place to live and enjoy golf.
