Golf At Lakewood Country Club
Lakewood Country Club is one of Colorado’s oldest and most respected private country clubs. Lakewood has been host to many state and regional tournaments throughout its history of over 100 years. Three USGA Championships and one Trans-Mississippi Championship have been held at Lakewood.
Lakewood Country Club features a rolling, wooded golf course that was once a farm. The original layout, designed by Tom Bendelow, had dirt fairways and sand greens. By 1910, the course had expanded from 9 to 18 holes, and the course was “turfed” with grass greens and fairways, replacing the sand and dirt. The highly regarded Donald Ross redesigned the course in 1916. In 2017, Gil Hanse—the architect of the Olympic course in Rio, Brazil, restored several Lakewood Country Club holes back to the original Donald Ross style . Many excellent players have called Lakewood home throughout the club’s 100-year history, including Mildred “Babe” Zaharias.
