Previously known as the Brass Ring Golf Club, the public Logan, Ohio property was purchased by Chris and Kim Lanning last year. The couple also opened the Urban Grille Pub and Restaurant on the property, which features seasonal fruits and vegetables from local farmers when possible, and is run by Head Chef David Ellis.
New owners of the Hocking Hills Golf Club & Urban Grille are working to add their personal touches and vision to the Logan, Ohio property, the Logan Daily News reported.
Chris and Kim Lanning purchased the facility formerly known as the Brass Ring Golf Club at the end of last year, the Daily News reported.
“I want everybody to be a part of the business,” Chris said. “We are here for everybody and are open to the public. I was a member of the club for 10 years and wanted to put my personal touch on the facility.”
The Urban Grille Pub and Restaurant is open and ready for business. The pub is open Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and closed Sunday. Head Chef David Ellis has more than 32 years of experience in culinary arts and has created new menus, the Daily News reported.
While enjoying a fine dining experience in the pub or restaurant, guests can take in the view overlooking the 18–hole golf course. The dining room features cathedral ceilings with its newly decorated interior, the Daily News reported.
“We feature seasonal fruits and vegetables from the local farmers market when possible,” Chris said.
“We wanted to create a family-friendly atmosphere for everyone while enjoying the beauty of the Hocking Hills,” Kim said. “The inside has been re-decorated with vintage flair. The hallway, from the pub to the restaurant, features a wall dedicated to Logan and its history.”
The Hocking Hills Golf Club is a par-71 course featuring 18-holes that measures 5,861 yards. The course features a rolling terrain with tree-lined fairways alongside the manicured greens, the Daily News reported.
“We are here for fundraisers and are looking to create a youth golf league,” Chris said.
Whether someone is a pro golfer or beginner, the golf pro-shop features golf equipment and apparel. Lessons are available from Certified PGA Professional Brian Carney by appointment, the Daily News reported.
“We will be adding 38 new golf carts to the fleet at the beginning of March,” Chris said. “This place is a gem and we are the only golf course in the county.”
The facility offers banquet rooms and the large restaurant is available to rent, the Daily News reported. “Whether your special occasion is a birthday party, baby shower, bridal shower, business banquet or family event to name a few, we can accommodate your needs,” Kim said.
“Business is good,” Chris said of the new ownership. “We have already increased membership by 32 over last year.”
