Elyria Country Club

 

Our Club is one of the oldest private country clubs in the State of Ohio, having been founded in 1905. However, our modern facilities and youthful energy give it a contemporary feel. It's the perfect blending of both turn-of-the-century values and state-of-the-art conveniences.

The 18 holes were laid out in 1925 by William Flynn, one of this country's most renowned golf course architects. Mr. Flynn also designed Cherry Hills (Englewood, CO), The Country Club (Brookline, MA) and Shinnecock Hills (Southampton, NY), all of which have been sites for the U.S. Open tournament.
As a family-oriented organization, Elyria's reputation is unequalled. In fact, some families have been enjoying The Club's hospitality for several generations. We are, however, always interested in having new families join us to grow and enrich our membership.

We are proud to have Michael Symon, Iron Chef winner 2007, as our food and beverage consultant at Elyria Country Club. The exquisite dining and banquet rooms are ideal for formal or casual dining. Our Executive Chef, Kevin McGuire, caters to your love of good food with a menu that features the best in contemporary cuisine.

When golf is not on your agenda, Elyria CC offers a range of other activities, including fitness center and outdoor swimming pool. We have over 30 planned social events for the family. Popular events include, 4th of July Fireworks, Easter Brunch, Mother's Day, Family Holiday Party with Jungle Terry, Wine Dinners, Elyria Day and many more.


History:

Worthington Ball Company of Elyria then known as Worthington Mfg. Co. in 1903 acquired the entire line of golf equipment from Hunt Mfg. Co. of Massachusetts. In the line were the “Haskell” patents on the first three-piece wound rubber golf ball, a ball that was developed by Clevelander Coburn Haskell in collaboration with an engineer from B.F. Goodrich in Akron in 1898. The ball they produced was dubbed “Bounding Billie” and it completely changed the game from the way it was previously played using the solid “gutta-percha” ball.

Walter Travis won two U.S. Amateurs and Sandy Herd won the British Open with the new ball.

In short ,Worthington executives, Dr. Bert Sanders and Sol B.Leonard wished to promote their business by establishing golf in Elyria. Fifty interested members attended a meeting in 1904, an astonishing number considering only two Elyrians, William N.Gates and F. Stacey Miller had ever played the game.

The birthday of Elyria Country Club was April 18, 1905 and its first elected Board President was Arthur L. Garford, a very successful wealthy Elyria Industrialist and inventor with many patents including the first bicycle saddle. He was also a close friend of President Theodore Roosevelt for whom he helped get elected to a second term.

The golf course for many years until 1925 was a 9-hole layout until purchases of land enhanced by the flowing “Black River” made it possible to expand.

The famous renowned golf course architect, William S. Flynn of Ardmore, Pa. was contracted to design and develop 18 new holes on 161 acres. The new course opened on July 4, 1926. The first foursome used gold-plated golf balls , courtesy of the Worthington Ball Co. of Elyria who were later to become the largest producers of golf balls in the World.

The original converted farmhouse redesigned as the clubhouse burned to the ground in August 1947 and a new beautiful one built and opened in June 1950. It was further renovated and expanded in 1997. A new swimming pool replaced the previous 42 year old one in 1994. Elyria Country Club is among the few 100 plus year old clubs in the State of Ohio that sits on it original property.
