Orchard Park Country Club was founded in 1916 originally as Park Country Club. Park Country Club then built another course in the current location in Williamsville, NY. In 1946 the members in Orchard Park leased the golf course from Park Country Club for 5 years and later purchased and renamed it Orchard Park Country Club. Orchard Park has 4 tennis courts, one swimming pool, and a clubhouse.
The original golf course was designed by Walter Travis and the layout stayed intact until 1994 when 2 holes were built, 1 renovated, and 2 holes removed. This was done to move the practice facility near the Proshop/Clubhouse. In 2000 hole #18 was renovated and in 2013 all the bunkers were renovated. Multiple green expansion have been performed to restore the original green sizes and XGD drainage was installed in remaining original greens. In 2014-15 OPCC built a new state of art 1000 sq ft pumphouse with a irrigation parts storage and work area. It includes a 1500 GPM MCI pumphouse with a fertigation system. In 2018 green #1 was rebuilt to USGA specifications.
OPCC is currently working on a Clubhouse Expansion Project. Any projects on the golf course are from a Golf Course Master Plan that was designed in 2004 by Ian Andrew. Most items have been completed except some upgrades to the Grounds Department facilities and a new irrigation system. Beginning in August 2022, we will be installing a new Toro Irrigation System with Leibold Irrigation, Inc. The system was designed by Tim Fredericks of Fredericks Mcguir Ltd., which also designed the pumphouse.
