Handbook for Members and Guests
Established in 1929 by Harvey Firestone and later acquired by ClubCorp in 1981, Firestone Country Club remains a one of a kind golf facility. It is the only course in the world to have held three televised golf events in one calendar year - The American Golf Classic, The CBS Golf Classic and The World Series of Golf. With its three championship level courses, Firestone Country Club is as unique today as it has ever been.
The words Firestone South can conjure up fond memories for many golf fans. Few will forget Jack Nicklaus’s magnificent comeback in the 1975 PGA Championship. Down by 5 strokes to Bruce Crampton, Nicklaus made an unbelievable par on the “Monster” 16th hole. He continued his comeback to win by four strokes, collecting his 4th PGA Championship. A more recent memory might be from the 2000 World Golf Championships-NEC Invitational, where Tiger Woods hit the now famous “shot in the dark” on the 18th hole to secure his victory in the event.
The North Course at Firestone with its beautiful lakes and streams played host to the 1976 American Golf Classic and the 1994 World Series of Golf.
The latest addition to the Firestone was the West Course. Opened in 1989 and redesigned by Tom Fazio in 2002, this course together with the North and South courses make the Firestone Country Club family complete.
