Bogey Hills Country Club stood in its place on Country Club Road for more than 50 years. The building was modest from the outside, but grand on the inside. The large, wooden doors were heavy to open and had abstract windows built into them. The main foyer had a floor to ceiling window that let members look out onto a golf course and a portrait of the founders of Bogey Hills, Doc and Doris Walters. On the night of Feb. 16, 2017, this building came burning down.

“I got the call on Thursday, February 16, at 11:37 p.m. from my security company, stating that a fire alarm had triggered.” Angel Likens, Bogey Hills Country Club President and General Manager said. “I jumped out of bed and I, live right next door to the club, so when I pull out of my driveway, I look to the left and I can see the fire coming out of the lounge.”

A year after the fire and the club has been rebuilt. Bogey has hosted several soft openings to introduce members to the new club and held their ribbon cutting on May 14. The Bogey Hills Board, members and the public were invited to the ribbon cutting. The new clubhouse will be fully functional by May 20, and with the remodel comes new additions that members didn’t have before.

“Since it was a 100 percent total loss, we had to build from the ground up,” Likens said. “We added some amenities that we didn’t have before. We added a Kids Room, we added a fitness center, we added a golf simulator room.”

Throughout the remodel, the golf course has remained open. According to Likens, members have stayed loyal and supportive of Bogey by coming out, golfing and stopping by to see the progress being made. The golf course did get it’s own revamp though. Some improvements include: new tee boxes to extend the length of the course and renovations to some of the bunkering. Bogey Hills Golf will also start having golf programs for kids.

“We’ve got two things: One, we have the Future Golfers’ Academy… That’s two, eight week long sessions, where kids come out and they learn how to play golf through the academy and instruction through play.” said Neely Robertson, Bogey Hills Head Golf Professional. “For the first time ever, Bogey Hills will have a PGA Junior league team this year. That’s where we play, put together a team and play teams from other clubs.”
