Westbury Country Club has closed and Louis Dakil Auctioneers plans to sell it, 167 acres including the 23,558-square-foot clubhouse, Nov. 1.
The property, southwest of SW 15 and Morgan Road, will be offered separately in three parcels: the clubhouse, restaurant and fitness center and acreage; then the front nine holes encompassing 86 acres; then the back nine on 77 acres; then offered as a whole. Real estate will be shown by appointment.
Dakil said potential buyers could be another golf and country club operator, but that the 160-plus acres also could be attractive to a housing developer. He said he previously has sold golf courses that were turned into residential developments, in northwest Oklahoma City near Edmond and in Shawnee.

The golf club opened in 1976. The country club came in 1985 and opened with fanfare and finery — tuxedoed attendants providing valet parking and five buffets — with some 500 members and guests over two nights of parties. Upon leaving, members enjoyed cherries jubilee while waiting for their cars, The Oklahoman reported.
