The Rolling Green Country Club golf course was preceded by a 9-hole course built by Dr. Oughton in 1923. Amazingly he built a nine-hole course (on that segment of the farm lying east of Rand Road which is now Old Orchard) in what was probably record time - eighteen working days! The doctor later confessed that he and his loyal friend "Wheels (H.B. Wheel Clock), who engineered and surveyed the drainage, worked together from 5a.m. to midnight." He hypnotized the farmers in the area into supplying free labor and horse teams for grading with the assurance of doubling the value of their land when the course was completed.
The good doctor sold the course and farm land on which it was located. The buyers started what we know today as The Rolling Green Country Club. The 18-hole course was built in 1925. The course was designed by William H. Diddel.
