Established in 1908, Beverly Country Club is a private club located on the south side of Chicago that features an 18-hole golf course that was designed by Donald Ross. The club’s first golf professional, George O’Neil, worked with golf course architect Tom Bendelow on the original design of the course before Ross was asked to create a master plan to renovate the course and bring it back up to major championship standards. 

Despite the fact that the course is laid out within a perfect rectangle, no two consecutive holes run in the same direction.  A prominent ridge that runs from behind the fifth green eastward at Beverly Country Club, which had been part of the southern shore of prehistoric Lake Chicago, a forgotten body of water that deposited sand dunes along Beverly’s back nine.
 
The women’s course record at Beverly Country Club is 69 by Susie Maxwell. Previous holders of the record included LPGA legends Patty Berg and Babe Didrickson.
 
The course record is 64, set by Tom Weiskopf in 1967.  Tommy Armour previously held the record with a 65.
 
One of the 25 founding member clubs of the Chicago District Golf Association, Beverly Country Club has a rich tradition of hosting professional and amateur tournaments whose winners include some of the greatest names in golf history. The club’s champions include Chick Evans, Francis Ouimet, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus.
