Bob Jones and Tim Jones, brothers, of Paducah, Kentucky first purchased Westwood Country Club, just a 9 hole course, in Paducah, Ky in 1989!
A few years later In 1992 Greg Overstreet, (Tim and Greg were on Tilghman high school golf team together) joined the two where the 3 men then took on the adventures, a mild word to say the least, of owning, and managing a golf course/country club!
Because of the competition of 18 hole courses and the popularity of golf being @ all time high they realized they needed more golf holes.
In 1993, along with golf course architect, Jerry Lemons, they broke ground on a champioonship golf course, now known as Silos Country Club.
They opened in 1994 with only 9 holes and just a little shed as the club house. Within a couple years they had 18 holes of golf sitting on 240 acres of beautiful western Kentucky country side!
They now have large clubhouse with grill inside, large pools/pool area, putting green, driving range and 100 cart sheds.
Greg left the company in 2015 and it is now just the Jones brothers once again.
With the boom of the sport in the 90’s they have also seen the doom at times with the declining popularity of golf and many new golf courses in area. This made for challenging times, but with the support of Silos’ Members (esp.the long term) and some hard work, Silos Country Club is still standing strong after 28 years.
Our Members are the best that we could ask for, and they are the real story behind Silos!!
Bob and Tim, through ups and downs, stress and hard work, made a dream, a passion, into a reality!
Seems as if these guys were born with an ole rusty golf club in hand, far from a silver spoon, but they made it work!
Silos Country Club is a terrific choice for your regular rounds of golf or a new destination for you and friends when visiting Paducah/Kevil area.
