Here is some history on Fox Hills Golf Club:
Today’s family-owned 63 hole daily fee golf and banquet facility had its beginnings in 1927 as a private country club. Wilfried Reid, a well-known golf course architect was said to have designed the original 18 hole course then known as the Plymouth Country Club for $50 and a bottle of spirits; a pretty hefty fee during the Prohibition days. The original log cabin clubhouse is still preserved today and offers guests at the Fox Classic clubhouse a peek into its history. The Plymouth Country Club continued to operate as a private club and in 1958 changed its name to Fox Hills Country Club. By the late 1960’s Fox Hills had fallen into a state of disrepair and lost members. In 1974, Alexander & Estelle Dul with their daughters Kathy & Sandy purchased the course and began to turn the property around. Course and clubhouse renovations were undertaken and growing demand for golf prompted the family to add another 9 holes in 1983 making Fox Hills into a 27-hole complex. In 1986, Alexander passed away, which only served to strengthen the family’s resolve to continue the work he helped start.
