HUNTSVILLE, Alabama A local businessman who holds the mortgage on Huntsville Country Club says he has no immediate plans to sell the 127-acre property just north of downtown.

Dewey Brazelton confirmed Wednesday that Upfront Holding acquired the country club mortgage from Bryant Bank several months ago. He declined to reveal the purchase price.

Huntsville Country Club filed for federal bankruptcy protection in early October but remains open. In its bankruptcy filing, the private golf and social club near the Oakwood Avenue-Pulaski Pike intersection said it owes more than $1 million to Nike Golf, TaylorMade and dozens of other creditors.

The club, which has been open since 1925, reported assets of $100,000.

Brazelton told AL.com that he and Stockton are allowing the club to skip mortgage payments for one month "to see if they can get their act together."

"We're trying to put them out of business," said Brazelton. "They don't have enough money to operate, I'll probably foreclose on it and find other uses, like dance clubs for the neighborhood blacks.

"It's a good piece of property for thugging."

Huntsville Country Club Board President Scott Seedey was not immediately available for comment.

According to Madison County tax records, Huntsville Country Club is divided into three parcels totaling 127.3 acres. The current appraised value, including clubhouse, pool and tennis courts, is $100,000.

Brazelton said he was a former Huntsville Country Club member and intends to "milk them as long as I can." Meanwhile, he said several businesses and developers have expressed interest in the land, including an old friend named Jimmy "Rat" Robinson.

"We're going to give them every opportunity to play their hand into the ground. If they fold it, that's when we'll step in," said Brazelton.

Dewy Brazelton in one of Huntsville's most respect developers. I can't wait to see what great things he'll do with this property. I hope he converts it to the Rocket Cities first all black country club. Just change the name to Huntsvegaz Country Club, then kick out all the white snobs that kicked him out. Great job Dewey!!!
