Ask Chris: Where Did Fox Hills Get Its Name? Was There Once a Large Wild Canine Population?


The neighborhood’s moniker likely traces back to a golf course and not the bushy-tailed animals or movie mogul William Fox. Fox Hills Golf Club (named after a famous course in New York) opened in 1927. The title stuck when the fairways were plowed under for development in 1966. A ten-acre park with a soccer field and basketball and tennis courts remains.
