In January 2009 the owners of Heatherwood Country Club filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. A temporary restraining order was obtained by a group of members to keep the club’s doors open.

They believed there were restrictions that run with the land that say it must be run as a country club.

According to the lawsuit, Heatherwood Holdings purchased Heatherwood Country Club in 2000 and made renovations to the property. In 2006, the club had approximately 300 members. There are currently about 250 homes in the subdivision surrounding the club, with about 125 homes lining the golf course, said the suit.

Heatherwood Holdings’ bankruptcy filing said the club generated revenues of $1.34 million in 2006, $1.17 million in 2007 and $993,448 in 2008.

The Heatherwood Country Club golf course closed in 2009.
