On Saturday August 15, 2020, Golfcopartners, LLC a North Carolina based Golf Company, completed its purchase of Rock Creek Golf Club. 

“As proud owners of our other course in Fernandina Beach, Florida, The Golf Club at North Hampton, we are looking forward to learning more about Rock Creek, the local community and elevating the golfing and customer social experience at Rock Creek,” states Patrick Schneider.

Scott Schneider elaborates and says that ”Our philosophy with Rock Creek is simple and transparent. Our intent is to operate as a golf course and social gathering center that serves the local community and surrounding area. We expect to bring the club to a higher standard of excellence and deliver something special for the community, members and other customers of the club. The club will continue to be semi- private, but open for public play. We expect to make many improvements to the facilities and course over the next couple of years to elevate Rock Creek as a first choice destination for golfers to play and for others to gather socially and enjoy themselves.”

Iconic Clock Corner Cleared of Contaminants

Workers were diligently removing unused fuel from 4 tanks buried underneath pavers on the corner of Fairhope Ave and Section St. 

The largest of the 4 tanks, pictured below being emptied, contained about 20” of remaining fuel making it about halfway full.  

Once completed, the City of Fairhope and the Fairhope Single Tax Corporation will finalize the purchase of the iconic clock corner and it will be added to the Parks Deed deeming it open and public property in perpetuity.
