“Oh $#*t” was exactly what Roy Clark, owner of Liberty Hills Golf Club, said to himself when he drove up the drive lined with giant oaks in 1995. After investing 20 years at Mill Creek Golf Club in Ostrander, Ohio, he and wife Donna were really just window shopping for a new adventure. A brief glimpse at the then named Bellefontaine Country Club, more than piqued their interest. The gently rolling terrain, sweeping views, a meandering creek and ancient oak trees beckoned.
Fast forward 23 years, and it’s easy to see that Roy, Donna and the course they renamed Liberty Hills have made an indelible mark on the local golfing community. Daughter Traci and her husband Roy Hobson, PGA Pro, joined the team along the way. Their son, Mike and all the grand-kids have been involved at one time or another. Other staff have been with us so long that they feel like members of the family.
This year marks the 100th year for the golf course and the 25th anniversary for the Clarks at Liberty Hills.
