The original nine holes were laid out by Willie Park Jr. during his first visit to the United States in the summer of 1895. The work on the original four holes was performed by the club members and commenced in early June and by the 4th of July 1897 the four holes were ready for play. The full nine holes measuring 2,677 yards were open by 1900. The second nine was designed by Walter Travis in the early 1920s but were only partially completed when cost overages forced the club to abandon the project. The project was eventually completed in 1947 based largely on the original Travis design with additional holes designed by Alfred Tull after the club purchased additional land where holes 5, 14 and 15 are today.
The club is recognized as one of the 100 oldest clubs in America. The club celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2018.
