Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Killearn Club?

The Killearn Country Club & Inn, built in 1967, was designed around an 18-hole championship golf course. The club was the centerpiece of Killearn Estates, a suburban development that was the first of its kind in Tallahassee. The club became a social hotspot for many of Tallahassee’s influential citizens and a sporting destination for the country’s best golfers. The club has hosted 21 PGA, four LPGA tournaments and many other professional events. From 1969 to 1982, the Club was home to the PGA’s Tallahassee Open, later the Centel Classic (’83-’89). Legendary golfers Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino, Gary Player, Chi-Chi Rodriquez and other top golfers played in these tournaments.

In 2014, the club’s then-owner made a controversial decision to close the North Course (Narrows) and sell part of the property to a residential developer. Club members and Killearn residents objected and began a multi-year battle to preserve the golf course. The residential development never materialized, and in 2020 a group of club members incorporated as Killearn Golf Properties and raised private funds to buy the club. These new owners set out to repair aging facilities and stabilize the club’s finances. In 2022, Killearn Golf Properties sold the club to Tallahassee native David Cummings, who is committed to the project and the community. Cummings is leading the plan to restore the club, renovate the 18-hole Championship Course and practice facilities, along with an all-new clubhouse, restaurant, pool, tennis courts, and charming cottages for overnight stays, among other upscale amenities. In 2023, the renovation team announced that Killearn Country Club will become The Killearn Club.

What is the vision for the new club?

The vision for the Killearn Club is to restore Tallahassee’s landmark golf and social experience, while preserving the character of the neighborhood and instilling pride in members and residents.

Who will be eligible to become members and how much will membership cost?

We welcome members from across Tallahassee and beyond. You don’t have to live in Killearn to become a member. Details on membership plans will be determined during the closure and shared widely with current and potential members.

Will the clubhouse be updated?

Plans include an all-new clubhouse. The new clubhouse will feature an upscale lounge and a dining area overlooking the course, as well as a full-service menu, special holiday offerings and space for private parties. The club will, once again, host annual social and dining events as well as regular golf and tennis tournaments.

How is this project being funded?

Entrepreneur and Tallahassee native David Cummings is making a multi-million dollar investment of private funds to reimagine the club.  The project is not using tax dollars or public funds.
