OXMOOR COUNTRY CLUB and it’s CLUBHOUSE were developed and constructed in the late 1980’s. The Country Club was developed by HFH, Inc. which also developed Glenmary Golf & Recreation Club and GlenOaks Country Club. The land that the club sits on dates back to the 18th Century. Noted Indian fighter, William Christian, and his wife (a sister of Patrick Henry), pioneered the development of what is now a 1,000 acre tract. Their daughter married Alexander Scott Bullitt, who build the first “Oxmoor House” on the property. You may recognize that Kentucky Counties are named in honor of these famous families.
Thomas Bullitt and his wife, Kay, were instrumental in the development of the Oxmoor Steeplechase into a nationally-known annual event. The steeplechase was held on the Oxmoor Country Club property from 1990-2002. Mr. Bullitt also played a key role in the development of both Oxmoor Country Club and the Oxmoor Mall Shopping Center.
Marketed in the late 1980’s as “affordable elegance” and designed to become the “next prestigious country club” in Louisville, Kentucky, original memberships sold for upwards of $25,000. The early years at Oxmoor Country Club (1989-1999) brought in many new members and enthusiasm was very high as business operations prospered. Oxmoor Country Club has hosted many prestigious events in it’s 25-year history including; the Men’s and Women’s Kentucky Open, the Ned Beatty Pro-Am Classic, the Big East Womens’ Golf Championship and the National Senior Olympics Golf Championship. Unfortunately, there was much competition, just around the corner. During the early 1990’s, many new private golf & country clubs were established in the Louisville area including, Lake Forest, Polo Fields, GlenMary, GlenOaks & the Cardinal Club. As competition increased, it became more and more difficult to maintain membership levels and sustain profitable operations. Eventually, HFH, Inc. dba Oxmoor Golf & Steeplechase, filed for bankruptcy in 2003.
In 2006, under the direction of Board President Vince Tyra, the members took over the club operations from the defunct HFH, Inc. Soon after, a new land lease agreement was established with the original Bullitt farm land owners and the Oxmoor Country Club membership was able to begin investing in the renovation of their club property. Since 2006, the membership numbers have drastically increased, more than $1,000,000 has been invested in the club facilities and the Oxmoor Country Club brand has been reinstated in the Louisville community as one of the premier clubs.
