Scioto Country Club, Columbus
Designed as the first 18-hole golf course in central Ohio by renowned Scottish-born architect Donald Ross, Scioto later became the Club where golf’s greatest player, Jack Nicklaus, learned the game. With the opening of the golf course in 1916, the Club quickly gained national stature as a pre-eminent facility and a decade later hosted the 1926 U.S. Open Championship won by golfing legend Bobby Jones.
This started the rich tournament tradition that Scioto enjoys as one of only four golf courses in the United States to have hosted five different major championships. The 1931 Ryder Cup, the 1950 PGA Championship, the 1968 U.S. Amateur, and the 1986 Senior U.S. Open have each added to the tournament legacy of the Club.
