This club has two outstanding eighteen hole courses. The East Course is an old, traditional design featuring tree-lined fairways that vary in width. In addition, water hazards (lakes and creeks) come into play on three holes. "Golf Digest" rated this course 42nd "Best out of America's 100 Greatest Courses" for 1995-96, and 40th best for 1997-98. It was also named the #1 "Best in State" course between 1995 through 1998. In addition, "GOLF Magazine" ranked it 59th among the "Top 100 Courses in the U.S." for both 1995 and 1997, and 61st in 1999. "GOLFWEEK" afforded it 40th in the category of "America's 100 Best Classical Courses" for 1997, 31st in 1998 and 33rd in 1999. The West Course features contoured fairways and undulating greens. Water hazards also come into play several times throughout this course. The USGA listed this as one of the first 100 clubs established in the U.S., and "GOLF Magazine" recognized it on their 1995 list of the "First 100 Clubs in America. The 1899 U.S. Open was played here, and the winner was Willie Smith. The club was originally established in 1894 and was known as the "Downtown Club." However, the city took back the land and A. W. Tillinghast decided to design a unique course on the local farmland. Geoffrey Cornish and Brian Silva later redesigned the East Course in 1991, and Bob Cupp and Tom Kite redesigned the West Course in 1990.
