Description

The History of the Owl Creek Country Club
Founded 1927


by: Mildred Ewen

The year 2009 marks the 82th anniversary of the founding of Owl Creek Country Club in Anchorage. At the formal opening on June 3, 1928, most of the one hundred members watched exhibition matches on the new golf course and tennis courts. A buffet supper was served in the big lodge room of the new clubhouse.

It was in the home of Mr. and Mrs. John Marshall, Jr. that a group of neighbors met the year earlier to organize a new club with a golf course and facilities beyond those of the Anchorage Country Club, which had been the center of social activity for more than forty years.

Mrs. Marshall was elected as the first club president along with C.D. Harris,Jr., as the first vice-president, Eustace Williams, secretary; I.T.Bond, treasurer; and the directors were J. Lyle Bayless, R.S. Logan, L.H. Wymond, Jr., J.R. McConnell, J.H. Waterfill, David R. Lyman, E.B. Norman, and John Monohan. Others involved were Judge Marshall and W. K. Gregory.

Mrs. Marshall and the newly elected board of directors agreed to purchase forty acres from the Isaac Bernheim estate and begin construction of a clubhouse and golf course. Lyle Bayless agreed to underwrite $25,000 of the cost. Other small tracts were added later. An account of the early days written by then president, Addison McGhee, in 1959 stated that the original capitalization was for $20,000 with each of the one-hundred members entitled to purchase on share for
