About Winchester Country Club:
Established in 1902, Winchester Country Club is a premier private country club located in Winchester, Massachusetts, nestled in a vibrant suburban community, just nine miles northwest of Boston, with a classic 18-hole Donald Ross golf course.
By 1915, the club had acquired a total of 175 acres and handed to Ross this canvas upon which to paint an 18-hole masterpiece. On and off over the next two decades, Ross would continue to tweak and expand his layout as more property became available. Most notable about this parcel of land is its substantial elevation change. From the low point near the first tee to the course’s peak at the 13th green, there is a 165-foot differential. The front nine traverses rolling terrain that at one time served as farms and pastures. The back nine features back-to-back par-5s sandwiched between two par-3s, yielding a finish of four consecutive par-4s that rivals any other closing stretch in the state.
Since 1919, Winchester has hosted seven Massachusetts Amateur championships and two state opens in addition to other state and regional tournaments. However, its best-known contribution to Massachusetts golf is its annual father & son tournament, the longest-running such event in the country. First held in 1919, as sons and fathers returned from World War I, the invitational tournament quickly became a mainstay in Massachusetts golf.
In the spring of 2016, the club opened a brand new 25-acre Golf Learning Center. This facility includes a full driving range, short game area, six practice holes and a state-of-the-art teaching building. The club features an extensive member tournament schedule; an active women's program; a prosperous junior golf program; and a well-established caddie program. The facilities include a 25,000 square foot clubhouse with various food venues, locker facilities, Golf Shop, outside dining, Swimming pool, play areas, four tennis courts and three paddle tennis courts. The club also includes a year-round Sports Center fitness facility with massage rooms, locker rooms, exercise studio, game room, indoor golf hitting bays, putting area and two AboutGolf simulators.
Today, Winchester Country Club remains one of the premier courses in the state. Featuring views of both the Mystic Lakes and the Boston skyline, this Ross layout remains intact, providing both challenge and enjoyment for its members and their guests.
