As the brothers got older, neither was able to do the work alone on the farm and they started talking about retirement. They were still too young to do nothing and they were sitting on all this property. A neighbor suggested a golf course. “The original idea,” says Kittie, “was that we were going to have a managed business and go to Florida and tell them to just send the checks.”
Golf Course Designer, Joel Goldstrand, began construction Spring of 2000. Blackberry Ridge Event Center & Clubhouse opened Fall of 2001 and the course opened shortly after.
Donnie and Veryl ran their business for a few years, then the unthinkable happened, Donnie passed away from cancer in 2009.
In 2017, Kittie purchased Linda’s portion of Blackberry Ridge Golf Club. Now, Kittie Fenlason and Wes Fenlason share ownership of Blackberry Ridge G.C. Linda is enjoying retirement and still very much involved with the Blackberry Team.
