A Proud Tradition Nearly 90 Years in the Making
With its place in the storied annals of PGA history, the Moraine golf course continues to build upon its illustrious legacy while preserving its rich tradition. Following a $5 million renovation under the guidance of renowned golf course architect Keith Foster, the course reopened in June 2016 with a return to its original Scottish links style roots. Golfers can now play the course the way it was originally intended, similar to the design of the course when Byron Nelson won his fifth and final major title at Moraine when the club hosted the 1945 PGA Championship.
Throughout its lifetime, the course has borne witness to the remarkable play of some of the finest players the sport has ever known, counting such greats as Nelson, Ben Hogan and Francis Ouimet amongst those to have walked the greens at Moraine. In fact, it was at Moraine where Nelson continued his march into the history books, earning the ninth victory in his famed streak of 11 consecutive wins on the Tour.
Moraine has been the spectacular site of many championships over the years, and it regularly serves as the host of the Ohio Amateur Championship every 10 years. A perennial fixture on Golfweek's prestigious list of Top 100 Classic Courses, Moraine has also been in elite company on Golf Digest's ranking of the country's toughest courses.
Committed to offering a conducive environment for player development, Moraine offers private golf lessons and clinics for members. All merchandise in the pro shop is hand-selected by the head golf pro, with club fitting services and demo clubs available on site as well.
Golfers of all abilities enjoy playing the masterpiece created in 1930 by original designer Alec "Nipper" Campbell, which has been meticulously restored by Foster to bring Campbell's vision back to life for today's players. The newly renovated 18-hole course is 7270 yards and par 72, with rolling fairways, fast greens and breathtaking sightlines that will keep golfers coming back for generations to come.
