Dr. Bennett York commenced construction of the highly acclaimed “Canebrake” in 1985. The master-planned community included a 250-acre recreational lake crafted by York from the Mississippi Woodlands. In 1989, Canebrake won Southern Living’s “Best Residential Development” award. In 1994, Paige York joined York Developments and spearheaded the launch of Canebrake Golf Community and Canebrake Country Club — an 18-hole Jerry-Pate designed Golf Club, which was ranked by Golf Digest as the #2 new affordable course in America. The York’s still own and operate Canebrake Country Club. The Membership is now 750 strong. Plans are underway for an expansion of the Clubhouse in 2018.
