The Sedgefield Country Club offers a rich history. The entire area was once a part of a hunting preserve owned by John Blackwell Cobb. Mr. Cobb was a wealthy industrialist who died in 1923. Later that year his daughters sold the property to a group known as Sedgefield Inc. The leader was A.W. McAlister, a noted businessman in the Greensboro area. He was an avid golfer and decided to build the Sedgefield Country Club in 1925. In October of 1925, the first memberships were accepted and the golf course was opened.
In the beginning the Sedgefield Country Club offered its members a variety of activities including golf, tennis, riding lessons and fishing. The original Clubhouse was renovated in 1993. It’s the same building we see today. The Golf Course is the home of the Wyndham Championships and many other activities. The Sedgefield Country Club remains a symbol of culture and tradition in the community.
It’s not just the Sedgefield Country Club with a unique past, the history of Sutton Oaks is interesting as well. Claude Sutton purchased the Sutton Oaks property in the 1930’s during a land auction. At the time, Sutton turned much of property into a pasture for his horses. The rest of the property he left wooded with some cleared paths for riders and horses. After Sutton died, the horses were removed and the pasture became overgrown with grass and weeds. Today, the Sutton land is once again a haven for residents with its new lease as Sutton Oaks at Olde Sedgefield.
