The Andersons were philanthropists and supporters of M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Ken Anderson was the founder and CEO of Allied Uniking Corporation, a Memphis-based maker of conveyor belts for automotive and non-automotive clients.

After Mary Anderson’s death, the club was placed into a trust. According to the letter, the trustee recommended the owners discontinue club operations for financial reasons.

Greens tool a big hit this past summer, but are great now.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
