How Bermuda Run Came To Be
Ariston Farm was built by David and China Lybrook in the early 1920s from sketches Lybrook casually drew on paper. The house was built from stones found on the farm and the wood was cut and cured on the farm. What was once a major cattle and horse farm became a luxurious retirement community, a private country club and golf course, and the newest town in Davie County.
When Billy Satterfield, a plumber’s helper from nearby Clemmons, looked across the river in his search for reasonably priced land to build his own country club, he found a farm for sale. Price: $1,000 an acre. Armed with artists renderings of what the club would be, he sold 175 lots for $10,000 each. Buyers paid the $10,000; then their lot location was assigned by conducting a drawing. Arnold Palmer took the first lot and Bermuda Run Country Club was born.
In the 1980s the country club was sold with the undeeded land to developers who purchased an additional 234 acres of the Lybrook farm (giving Bermuda Run a total of 900+ acres) on the Davie County side of the Yadkin River. The community underwent an expansion that added a plush retirement center, luxury condominiums and another nine holes of golf. Recently, there has been further expansion of the community when another clubhouse and golf course were added along with additional home sites.
