Course Description

Grover Cleveland Golf Course is a 5,621 yard par 69 course located in the City of Buffalo and is the site of the original Country Club of Buffalo. As the Country Club of Buffalo it hosted the 1912 U.S. Open won by the first American golfer to capture the crown, John J. McDermott. It is the only public golf facility in North America to be designed by two of the most famous golf architects of the early 20th Century: Walter J. Travers and Donald Ross. The course was designed by Travers in 1902, redesigned by Ross in 1920, and redesigned again in 1952 after it was purchased by the City of Buffalo. Erie County assumed ownership of the course in the 1970s.

While not long, 9 of the original Travers “1912 Open” holes still exist (today’s 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 12th, and 13th holes) and the course is noted for its very difficult green complexes designed by Ross, including the 3rd, 14th, 17th and 18th holes. The 17th hole “Redan” style par 3 is annually rated as one of the best par 3s in Western New York. Recent renovations have seen the installation of a fully automated watering system, restoration of fescue rough to delineate many of the fairways that makes it reminiscent of courses on the British Isles, and rebuilding of many of the bunkers to designs that harken back to the days of Travers and Ross. Whether you are new to the game or an “old pro,” you will enjoy testing yourself out at the home of the 1912 U.S. Open.
