Medinah Country Club is a 54 hole Private golf facility located in Medinah, Illinois. Medinah Country Club is Chicago’s best known and most frequented major championship venue with three US opens, two PGA Championships, the 2012 Ryder Cup and the 2019 BMW Championship.
There are three courses at Medinah – Course #1 and Course #3 were originally designed by Tom Bendelow. They have been modernized and upgraded through time and alongside the most recent work on Course #2, which has furthered the current improvement to the club’s facilities. Medinah Country Club has put in some major investments over the past 10 years so that its greens, tees, fairways and bunkers will continue to be major-championship caliber.
The members of Medinah Country Club recently voted to move forward with a master plan for Course #3, which was originally designed by Tom Bendelow and redesigned by Rees Jones.
The 1920s through the 1940s was the peak period for local Chicago area club pros to enjoy national success playing on tour. Two top professionals, Tommy Armour and Ralph Guldahl both worked at Medinah Country Club. Their combined career totals include three US Opens, one Open Championship, one PGA Championship and the 1939 Masters Tournament – won by Guldahl.
