Special Club Features

The single most important event in the establishment of Hallbrook Country Club occurred in 1927 when Joyce C. Hall acquired a 41-acre farm at 110th Street and State Line Road.  Joyce Hall founded the largest greeting card company in the world, Hallmark Cards Inc., widely known and respected.   He built the large white Georgian-style house that still overlooks the golf course in 1930, raised his family and lived there until his death in 1982. In the mid 1980’s, the Hall family announced that the farm would become an upscale residential development with a golf course. 

Tom Fazio was selected to be the golf course architect, and the property for the golf course was selected first, after which the residential lots were plotted.  His charge was to respect the natural terrain and preserve as much of the landscape as possible.  Construction started in 1986, and the golf course was opened for play in June 1988 with Don Hall hitting the first drive.  At that time, based upon the USGA rating system, the golf course was the second most difficult course in the United States.

In January 1988, Hallbrook Farms Country Club was formed as a private golf, tennis and social club.  On July 1, 1989 Halbrook’s tennis and swimming pool pavilion opened.  Consistent with the Hall family philosophy, the facilities were first-rate.  The clubhouse opened Memorial Day weekend in 1990.  And on December 31, 1993 the ownership of the Club was turned over to the members, and the name was changed to Hallbrook Country Club.

Over the years some of the facilities have been replaced and others remodeled or improved.  The Club is home to 700 families of which take full advantage of the clubs many amenities which includes a 78,000 square foot clubhouse and 11,900 recreation facility. The Club boasts multiple dining options, fitness facility, pool, tennis courts, pickleball and a world class championship golf course.

The food and beverage operation is the heart of the Club and provides a la carte dining options 6 days a week during peak season in addition to a variety of member and private events .
