Oakhurst Links, one of the nation's oldest golf courses, sold for $410,000 on Saturday, an auction house said.
Lewis Keller Sr. never passed up a chance to sit with visitors over a glass of lemonade and promote the history of American golf at one of the nation's original courses.
Owner Lewis Keller Sr. says it's his understanding that the bidder, a Wheeling businessman, will keep the nine-hole course and its old-style equipment intact and playable.
"I felt like it was worth more to the world of golf than it is," Keller said. "It showed this morning. That is disappointing. One thing is whether or not it is a financial success, apparently the world of golf does not feel that it is as important to them as I thought. That's what exactly it amounts to."
