F&H Development Company sold two parcels totaling 136 acres to the city for an undisclosed sum, though the asking price was $1.2 million when the property went up for sale last year. Under the sale, the city acquired the golf course, clubhouse, maintenance facility, 10-acre practice facility, and a large putting green.
The Bootheel Golf Club in Sikeston, Mo., has been sold.
F&H Development Company, a Missouri corporation, sold two parcels comprising approximately 136 acres of property to the City of Sikeston, for an undisclosed amount according to documents filed with Scott County, Missouri officials.
When the golf course was listed for sale last year, the asking price was $1.2 million. Bootheel Golf Club was originally built in 1996 and was designed by architect George Pfaff and consists of cart paths throughout and Bermuda tees and fairways with bentgrass greens known for their year-round playability.
“This transaction was good for both parties,” said Todd Miller, managing attorney for the Law Office of Todd Miller, LLC, the firm that sold the golf course. “The seller can concentrate on its core business and the city obtains a valuable recreational property adjacent to its soccer fields and airport.”
Under terms of the sale, the City of Sikeston obtained the golf course, clubhouse, maintenance facility, a 10-acre practice facility, and large putting green. It is unknown if the city plans to continue golf operations at the course or redevelop it for other purposes.
The golf course once hosted an annual NGA/Hooters Tour event from 1997-2004. Country stars such as Clay Walker, Trace Atkins, and the members of the group Alabama have all enjoyed Bootheel in the past when performing at the local rodeo grounds.
