About Us: 

 

The Baltimore Country Club, founded in 1898, is a private club with two golf courses. It was one of the first 100 clubs established in the United States. The championship par-70 East Course designed by A.W Tillinghast was opened in 1926. It has received many honors including the #39 ranking in Golfweek's 2020 list of America's top 100 Classic Courses and #75 ranking GOLF magazine's 2020 list of Top 100 courses in the U.S. Baltimore Country Club is one of only two clubs in the world to have hosted a Men's U.S. Open, PGA Championship, Men's U.S. Amateur, U.S. Walker Cup, U.S. Women's Open, and Champions Tour Major. Most recently, we hosted the 2017 and 2018 Big Ten Men's Golf Championships.

 

The par-72 West Course opened in 1962 and was re-designed in 1990 by Bob Cupp and Tom Kite, member of the Champions tour and World Golf Hall of Fame. There is an ongoing plan for annual renovation and regrassing of tees to improved varieties of bermudagrass as BCC is always looking for ways to improve the facilities.

 

We are beginning to execute our Master Plan for the golf courses, developed by Golf Architect, Keith Foster, and implemented by McDonald & Sons golf contractors. Enhancements will include extensive drainage installation, tee work, bunker restoration, return of A. W. Tillinghast design features, and new short game and improving the practice facilities. As a staff, we see importance in staying up to date, utilizing new technology, and keeping an open mind to new ideas. It is a work environment where people are passionate about providing exceptional service and experiences for members and guests.
