Less than three years after it was sold at auction the last time, the former Russellville Country Club will once again be auctioned off – this time on Nov. 28.

United Country Real Estate Consultants has announced that they will be selling off the country club property on Saturday, Nov. 28 at 10 a.m. The sale will be conducted live onsite and streamed live on Proxibid.com for investors unable to attend in person.

The club was bought by EJB Properties, LCC for $472,000 in December of 2012, and was operated for a couple of years as a semi-private club before closing its doors earlier this year.

“The owner no longer has a need for the property and that’s why it’s taking place,” said Bob Grimsley of United Country Real Estate Consultants.

The property will no longer be used as a golf course and has been surveyed by DDI Engineering into seven tracts ranging from 3 to 24 acres.

The land is zoned B-2 and could be used for any number of business opportunities, Grimsley said.

“The abundance of road frontage on the federal and state roads makes it real appealing for sites such as a Rite Aid, Dollar General store or those type of commercial propertied,” he said. “It is also perfect for medical arts development, which would be enhanced by the park-like setting of the former golf course.”

Grimsley said the property would be marketed both regionally and nationally to try and attract buyers.

The 6,200-square foot clubhouse will be situated on a 3.3 acre tract and the 160 golf cart storage units, swimming pool and tennis courts will all be sold together in a 3.4 acre tract.

“The clubhouse could end up being a restaurant or easily be converted into other commercial uses,” Grimsley said.

If the buyer of the clubhouse does not want to use the building as a restaurant, items like dining room tables, stoves and fryers may be sold off at auction on Nov. 28 as well.

“There will also be a couple of small sales,” Grimsley said. “There is a John Deere tractor, a 12-foot mower, brand new feritlizer spreader, bleachers and a few things like that.”

Grimsley said that signs advertising the sale would be going up this week and that more information would be forthcoming.

“If anyone wants to look at the clubhouse or other property, they can give us a call and we’ll be glad to make arrangement,” he added.

The phone number for more information is 270-926-2727.
