You're seeing it happen at Eagle Bluff, as the golf course shuts down, leaving homeowners in that community wondering what will happen to their home values. The Champions Club was surely headed in that direction. But in December, four homeowners stepped in to purchase the Club (from the same owner as Eagle Bluff) to ensure this wouldn't happen.
The course, originally developed by Phil Martin and Delwin Huggins, was in pitiful shape. The clubhouse hadn't see any updates for decades. The pool was un-swimmable. Quite frankly, its fate seemed headed in Eagle Bluff's direction.
But in perhaps one of the biggest turn-arounds in the Chattanooga business and golf community, the Champions Club is back. Better than ever. And while major renovations to the clubhouse and pool - along with a new executive chef, outstanding food, and a social calendar that rivals any area club - have been exciting for members, the centerpiece remains the golf course. Beginning Saturday morning at 8 a.m., the Champions Club will feature a full 18-hole revitalized golf experience with the grand re-opening of the back 9 greens.
The course will be open to the public on Sunday as three golfers can play with a member for just a cart fee.
