Beacon Ridge Country Club in West End, N.C., was recently put up for sale by auction with a bid deadline of February 4, the Southern Pines, N.C.-based Pilot reported.
Course owners Don and Rhoda Billings, of Beacon Ridge Investment Group, decided to sell the property after coming out of retirement to manage the course and clubhouse interests personally for the last few years, the Pilot reported.
Named as the developer of Seven Lakes West in January 1990, Don Billings was part of a group of creditors who purchased the community’s assets after the original development group filed for bankruptcy. Billings oversaw construction of the course and clubhouse and handed management over to Winfield Properties, the Pilot reported.
In 2013, Don Billings ended the lease with Winfield after 16 years when he became dissatisfied with the condition of the property. Since that time, he and his wife have made several upgrades to the clubhouse and amenities, the Pilot reported.
The club is located inside the gates of Seven Lakes West, the par 72-course featuring Bermuda fairways and Penncross Bentgrass greens was designed by Gene Hamm. Currently, Beacon Ridge Country Club has 200 members. In addition to the rolling 6,494-yard course and fitness center, the Mount Vernon-style clubhouse has a formal dining room with a 100-seat restaurant, two bar and lounge areas, a wrap-around balcony, men’s and women’s locker rooms, and a golf pro shop, the Pilot reported.
Outside amenities include a pitch and sand practice area, a driving range with 12 hitting stations, three tournament-quality Har-Tru tennis courts, and a junior Olympic-sized swimming pool, the Pilot reported.
The listing is being carried by Hilda W. Allen Real Estate. Interested buyers must first sign a confidentiality agreement and qualify to bid before they can receive additional information. There will be a property preview date on January 28 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Pilot reported.
