ARCHITECT The club originally opened in 1894, which makes it one of the oldest private clubs west of the Mississippi River. It relocated to its present site in 1904, and since that time a number of people have worked on the course. Former head professional Jim Barnes, the 1921 U.S. Open champion, was influential in the course layout. It was most recently redesigned by John Steidel in the 1980s.
COURSE LAYOUT The fairways will measure a little more than 0.55" in height. The intermediate rough will measure 1 inch with a width approximately 6 feet. Depending on density, the primary rough will stand between 2 and 2½ inches high.
TICKETS Admission for all six days of the championship is free of charge. Spectators are invited to walk the fairways behind the players, but no cameras are allowed during the days of competition.
