INTERLACHEN COUNTRY CLUB
Interlachen has a rich and storied history as a host of golf championships. Since its beginning in 1909, Interlachen has been committed to excellence - from the quality and condition of the timeless Donald Ross classic and the prestige of the championships it has hosted. The golf course is considered among Ross’ finest designs and consistently ranks among the best in the country (currently No. 56 in Golf Digest’s “Top 100 American Courses”).
The Club has been an advocate of championship golf at the highest level and has been proud to host the most prestigious events in professional and amateur golf, including the 1993 Walker Cup, 2002 Solheim Cup and the 2008 U.S. Women’s Open. However, it was the 1930 U.S Open that was the Club’s defining moment, where Bobby Jones embarked on an incredible journey, in which Interlachen played a starring role.
After having just won the first two legs of the Grand Slam in England, Jones’ U.S. Open victory at Interlachen on July 12, 1930, gave him the third leg of the Gram Slam. Jones would achieve the Grand Slam two months later, by winning the U.S. Amateur at Merion, to complete one of the greatest achievements in sports history. In accomplishing his Grand Slam, Jones provided Interlachen Country Club national and international prominence and its well-deserved place in golf lore.
