Local commercial real estate agency Urban Story Ventures recently acquired the Valleybrook Golf and Country Club, formally owned by Luken Holdings, and has plans to revitalize the property back to its historical glory.

The Hixson golf course has a rich history dating back to 1963. Here are some quick facts about the green space:

  • Spans over 130 acres
  • One of the first 18-hole residential golf course communities in the country
  • Has hosted nine PGA tour events + various nationwide tournaments
  • Installed TifEagle Bermuda greens in 2020
  • Has amenities like a driving range, pro shop, full-service restaurant + more

The redevelopment will be led by the President of Urban Story Ventures Jimmy White, who has overseen other projects including the current development of The Bend.

While this might be the company’s first golf course, Jimmy has extensive knowledge as a former professional golfer who spent his early years at Valleybrook + has worked on golf developments across the Southeast.

The vision of the new Valleybrook encompasses the idea to reinstate the prestigious brand it had in the early years by honoring “the past and embraces the needs of the next generation of members.”

The club currently exists on a semi-private membership basis, but the requirements are under review to elevate the member experience, update amenities + create a premier social club on the green.

The new owners will be in touch with current and prospective members in the coming weeks via official club communications to disclose the changes.

Note: Members + interested parties are recommended to be on the mailing list for updates as the project continues — subscribe in the “Get In Touch” section at the bottom of the webpage.

Stay tuned for updates through the golf and country club’s website.
