GENOA – The Oak Club of Genoa was sold at auction Wednesday to an unnamed buyer who plans to keep the course running, according to Diana Peterson, the Executive Vice President of Auctions by ATG, which handled the sale.

Peterson said the 18-hole, 157-acre golf course sold for well above the minimum bid of $595,000 but wouldn't gave a specific figure.

The sale is set to close on Sept. 16.

The Oak Club of Genoa has been in operation since 1971 and underwent a renovation in 2006, according to its website. It last played host to a major event in 2009, when a U.S. Public Links Championship qualifier took place there.
