Description

Looking back it is difficult to envision that a part of our present clubhouse was once an old stone and brick barn on the stock farm of the Veech family.

Many of us may not be aware that Big Spring is located in one of the most historic areas of Louisville and Jefferson County. Our club property of 162.91 acres borders the Middle Fork of Beargrass Creek and the site of Floyd's Station, a fort built by John Floyd in 1779. Floyd, who served with George Rogers Clark during the Revolutionary War, held a deed for 1,400 acres, part of which includes our club's property as we know it today.

The founders of our club so named it because of a "big spring" which once furnished water for pioneer settlers in the area. This spring, located just below the 13th green of our golf course, is still flowing today.

Few of us remember how in 1926 Harry Dumesnil and Alvah H. Terry formed the Big Spring Land Company, a corporation organized to purchase property for the establishment of a private golf club. A tract of approximately 160 acres with boundaries on Cannon's Lane and Dutchman's Lane was purchased, and in May 1927 the Big Spring Golf Club was formally opened with Dumesnil serving as its first president.

The early years were extremely difficult from a financial standpoint, especially during the depression years of the 1930's. However, dedicated and optimistic leadership brought the club safely through these depression years, and during the past three decades the club began to grow and prosper. Additional social and recreational facilities were added: so much so that we were no longer just a golf club. In 1962 the name was changed to Big Spring Country Club in recognition of all the facilities and enjoyment that had been made available to every member of the family.
