COURSE OPEN WITH CARTS
In 1917, a group of businessmen and golf enthusiasts joined together and created Garrett Country Club. Golf course architect Tom Bendelow of Chicago was hired to design the new course. Mr. Bendelow designed many courses during that period, including Medinah Country Club in Chicago, Illinois. Medinah has hosted the U.S. Open on three different occasions, most recently the Ryder Cup in 2012.
From 1917 to 1940, Garrett Country Club was operated as a private club run by the local shareholders. In 1940, the club was purchased by the Garrett Elks who operated it for just two years.
