About Milwaukee Country Club
Established in 1894, Milwaukee Country Club is Wisconsin’s oldest golf club and one of the oldest clubs in the Midwest. Originally located on Milwaukee’s East Side, the Country Club moved north to its present site in 1911. After several redesigns, the present golf course was officially opened on July 4, 1929. The course was designed by famed architects Harry S. Colt and Charles H. Alison. The Club hosts approximately 15,000 rounds annually and features a practice range and short game area. Additional amenities include: nine asphalt tennis courts, three hydro-clay tennis courts, two paddle tennis courts, two croquet courts, pool, pool pavilion with dining bar and kitchen, snowshoeing, sledding, and cross-country skiing. The Club has 455 members.
In 2005, noted golf course architect Tom Doak of Renaissance Golf Design, Inc. agreed to develop a long-range plan for the club. Many of Mr. Doak’s recommended changes have been incorporated in today’s course. The club’s long-range plan will serve to confirm, preserve, and restore the traditional Colt and Alison heritage which makes Milwaukee Country Club’s course a truly distinguished venue for the game we all love.
Milwaukee Country Club... is annually ranked among the Top 100 golf courses in the United States. Golf Magazine currently ranks Milwaukee Country Club as the #71 golf course on their Greatest in America list.
The club has hosted several national events which include: 1903 Western Open, 1969 Walker Cup Matches, 1988 U.S. Senior Amateur, and 2008 U.S. Mid-Amateur. In 2022, the Club will host a USSGA event at the end of August as well as the Marquette University Intercollegiate event in October.
The Milwaukee Country Club resides on a 200-acre property about 10 miles north of downtown Milwaukee. Greens, tees, and fairways are predominately older cultivars of bentrgrass/poa mix. The golf course consists of a large area of highly maintained turf which includes: 5 acres of greens, 5 acres of approach/bailouts, 36 acres of fairways, and 4 acres of tees.
