Henderson Country Club golf course sold; owner eyes improvements

CLOSE

With a toast of champagne and expressions of thanks, members of the Henderson Country Club last week celebrated the sale of the golf course to one of its members.

“Thank you for your support,” Charles Morris, who closed on the purchase of the 18-hole, 142-acre course on Tuesday, said during a celebration at the club’s upstairs banquet room.

“We appreciate what you’re doing,” Eric Williams, who has been president of the club’s board of directors, replied.

A Texas developer plans to demolish much of the Shops at Worthington Place in an effort to save the struggling mall property by converting it into a mixed-use development called High North.

Under the plan, scheduled to go before the Worthington Planning Commission on Thursday, the north and west sides of the mall eventually would be torn down, removing about 120,000 square feet of the 138,000-square-foot building.
