History of Springfield Country Club
In 1897, when Riverdale Street in West Springfield was a countrified thoroughfare and most of the main roads were farmland, Mr. Donald Ross, one of the most famous golf course design architects in the world, came in and created the course’s original design.
In 1899, the Springfield Country Club acquired additional acreage; tennis courts were built, and the clubhouse was expanded.
By 1900, the golf course grew from nine holes to eighteen holes. As the golf course grew, the clubhouse did as well. This year was when the membership at Springfield Country Club surpassed the 400 mark.
In May 1907, the season opened with a newly remodeled clubhouse complete with many new furnishings. Then early one morning, a tragedy struck engulfing the clubhouse in flames and burning the facility down to the ground.
In 1908, the grand opening of a brand-new clubhouse occurred. Today, with some remodeling and renovations, the Springfield Country Club stands majestically commanding the hilltop where it was first placed in 1907.
Many generations of families have enjoyed Springfield Country Club and its’ amenities.
