And another one bites the dust.
Inwood Forest Country Club in Houston is shutting down after more than 40 years of operation. Inwood Forest members received a letter from club management in the past few days alerting them to the closure. The course is expected to be open only for about another month.
No word on the identity of the company purchasing Inwood Forest, but the plan is apparently to redevelop the property for new homes.
Thomas Flynn, Inwood Forest's head professional, told me that Hearthstone Country Club - like Inwood, a 27-hole facility - is offering Inwood Forest members a zero-initiation fee to join Hearthstone. Flynn has membership packets for Hearthstone at Inwood Forest for members to pick up, if interested.
