Members and Patrons of the Golf Club of Dallas,
I hope this letter finds everyone doing well during this uncertain time of Covid-19. I am reaching out to inform you that after 8 years of ownership, Petro Golf Management DBA “The Golf Club of Dallas” has sold to “Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship”. Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship is located at 1808 W Camp Wisdom Rd, which happens to be just beyond the number four green on the golf course.
The Senior Pastor, Dr. Tony Evans, told me in one of our meetings that he founded the Church in 1976 with 10 people in his house. They now employee over 300 employees and have about 10,000 active members. They have tremendous outreach in the community and have an interest in approximately 200 acres in Oak Cliff, not including the golf course. After many phone conversations and several in person meetings, it was clear to me that Dr. Evans and Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship was a perfect group to own the Club. OCBF made it clear that they want to see the golf course remain intact and plan to work on making it the focal point of the community like it has been in the past.  
This was a win for not only our group and OCBF but also the immediate community and all the members and patrons that the course already serves. I have been very fortunate to work very closely with Dr. Evans and Mr. Gregory Smith, the Executive Business Manager, during this long process and I could not be more impressed with the entire team at OCBF. They are true professionals and it is very clear they just want the best for the Community and the Club.
On a personal note, after more than twenty years of service here at the Club I will certainly miss so many aspects of working here. I remember a day twenty-one years ago when I had a meeting at Luby’s Cafeteria, after 3 previous interviews, and at that meeting Jon Roy Reid and David Houser hired me to be the Head Golf Professional at Oak Cliff Country Club. I was thirty years old at the time and an Assistant Golf Professional at Royal Oaks Country Club. The last twenty years have shaped who I am as an adult and I could not be more appreciative of the opportunity that I was given. I never thought in a million years, sitting in that Luby’s at 30 years old, that I would one day own the Club with four of my friends. Thank you for all the support of our staff, the club and myself for all these years, and please continue to support OCBF as they continue to operate and improve the club.
