    The Country Club Golf Course Review




    The Country Club is located in Brookline Massachusetts and it makes for one of the oldest and most significant (from a historical point of view) golfing facilities in the United States. As far as golf history goes, the Country Club is one of the 5 charter clubs which were the Founding Fathers of the USGA. Also, the Country Club was host for numerous USGA tournaments, the 1913 US Open included and currently has over 1300 members. The Country Club was founded in 1882, 134 years ago but the golf course wasn't built until 1893 due to various animosities between members and the club owners. Obviously, in its over one hundred years of history, the golf course grew in several stages, being re-designed and improved by numerous architects.

    Currently, the Country Clubs golf course is ranked 24th by the prestigious magazine Golf Digest in its 2013 2014 Top 100 Greatest Golf Courses in America and first in its home state. Despite its venerable age, the Country Clubs golf course will really spin your wheels, especially if youre a golf-architecture junky, as both the quality of the property and the individual hole-design will definitely exceed your expectations. If youd be inclined to think that the Country Clubs Top 100 ranking is due mostly to its impressive history rather than to its sheer design/overall quality, youd be dead wrong. This is a golf course that has it all: an incredible history and a long tradition, its built over a beautiful piece of real estate and it boasts memorable holes that are both challenging and hugely enjoyable. The Country Club has hosted no less than fifteen USGA events, including three US Opens and the Ryder Cup in 1999. Bottom line, the Country Clubs golf course is spectacular in every way and if youll be lucky enough to play it, it will make it on your short list of all-time favorites, I have no doubts about that.
