The Country Club’s 18-hole course that was the scene of the 1963 and 1988 U.S. Opens is not the 18-hole course ranked by Golf Digest. Those events were played on a composite course, utilizing a few holes from the club’s third Primrose nine. We rank the combination of the Main Course, clearly good enough to be one of the top courses in the world. Gil Hanse performed some course restoration prior to the 2013 U.S. Amateur at The Country Club. A new configuration of 18 holes will host the 2022 U.S. Open.
100 Greatest: Ranked since 1969. Highest ranking: No. 10, 1995-'96. 2021-'22 ranking: No. 17. The course was also part of Golf Digest's original 200 Toughest Courses list in 1966.
Best in State: Ranked first since 1997.
