History at High Noon

From Dairy Farm to Country Club”

Wednesday, April 17, noon to 1 p.m.

Commission Chambers of Deerfield Beach City Hall

150 NE 2 Ave.

Deerfield Beach FL 33441

It’s another exciting storytelling adventure tracing the story of the Deerfield Beach Country Club by Deerfield’s own Robert A. “Bob” Parton, Jr.

A life-long Florida resident, Bob is very active in the Deerfield Beach community and currently serves as Treasurer of the Kiwanis Club of DFB Charitable Foundation, Inc. In 1959, dairy owners Bert and Carrie Williamson sold 70 acres of their farm to Charles “Charlie” Parton, of Plattsburg, New York, and his two partners, also from New York. Their desire was to develop the land into a country club. The project would cost $500,000 and the club’s original name became the Deerfield Beach Golf and Country Club. It was an exciting time for Deerfield Beach residents when the club opened on Labor Day 1962. Not only was it the lone country club in town, it was one of only a few golf courses in the area. At its peak, the club maintained about 400 golf members and 300 social members. At any given time, as many as 50 or 60 names remained on a waiting list. “Bob” will continue to trace the story of the country club up to its sale in 2014 and final farewell party.

This presentation is part of a series of talks sponsored by the Historical Society and held the 3rd Wednesday of each month at “high noon.” Entrance is free, donations accepted. For more information, go to the Historical Society’s website, www.deerfield-history.org, or call 954 429-0378.
