Foxburg Country Club is home to one of the oldest golf courses in continuous use in America. The Foxburg Golf Club, as it was named back then, opened for business in 1887. Their first president was a man named Joseph M Fox. Mr. Fox was introduced to golf while traveling abroad in England. He was so intrigued by golf that when he returned to the summer estate he made a three hole course in a cow pasture. Eventually The Foxburg Golf Club was established and the course was expanded to nine holes.
In honor of The Foxburg Country Club’s upcoming 125th Anniversary, I will be dedicating a series of blogs pertaining to The Country Club, its history and the club’s fourth annual Hickory Stick Tournament. So please keep watch for more information to come..
