Concert Golf Partners has rival for OK City course


Peter Nanula wants to buy a prominent, financially strapped golf club in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, but he may have to fend off a committed group of club members to do so.

In August, the Newport Beach, California-based investor acquired the first mortgage on Gaillardia Golf & Country Club, a property currently in receivership. Control of the loan would seem to give Nanula’s deep-pocketed Concert Golf Partners the inside track on a purchase, but a bid from Jeff McDougall, an oil man who owns a 17,500-square-foot mansion in the Gaillardia community, might be favored by a second lender involved in the proceedings.

“We’re just a group in the club that would like to see it locally owned,” McDougall told the Oklahoman. “We think it’s the best thing for the community.”

Neither suitor intends to spell out his plans for the club until the foreclosure process concludes, and nobody seems to know when that will happen.
