Residents of Banks County can take down their Craigslist and E-bay listing for their golf clubs and breathe a sigh of relief. Scales Country Club isn’t closing after all.
In a deal that is set to be finalized within the next two weeks, Jim Pritchard and partner Tony Adams will be the new owners of Banks County’s lone country club.
“We are very excited about keeping the golf course going and developing a first class community for the Banks County area,” said Pritchard.
Pritchard moved to Homer from Gwinnett County approximately two years ago. Living only two miles from Scales Country Club, he was naturally drawn to the course. He noted that he’d played several rounds with his son, who is a collegiate golfer.
After learning that the club’s owners were looking to divest, Pritchard and his partner Adams slowly began making moves to acquire the property. Pritchard was only a year removed from selling his primary business – a cost management firm for workers compensation.
