Birthplace Of American Golf For Sale
By Kickntrue on 8/18/09
There is a course in West Virginia where sheep graze on the fairways and hickory shafted clubs are required. Now you can buy it.
Oakhurst Links is a nine hole course (with a museum) that had golf as early as 1884 and it bills itself as America's first golf course. The listing price is $4.5M. Seem like a lot for a pasture in West Virginia but what do I know? It doesn't look overly popular on oobgolf, but I don't know how easy it actually is to play versus visit for the history.
Is there a place for a course like this in every state- where you show up - and rent/play with old clubs? Would you go for the sense of history or do it as a gimmick?
