The Plymouth Country Club, a premier family-oriented club, was built in 1923 as a 9-hole private country club with local Elkhart architect Royal L. Simmons commissioned for the design. Mr. Albert R. Gates, then president of the distinguished Western Golf Association, declared that the newly opened Plymouth Country Club was one of the finest clubhouses and grounds of any city in the region.
In 1967, the Club expanded the golf course to eighteen holes along with adding three tennis courts and a swimming pool.
Challenging and rewarding, the Plymouth Country Club course offers both short and long holes, left and right doglegs as well as several uphill and downhill approaches that feature a wide variety of mature trees across an undulating terrain. The condition of the course is truly wonderful -- due in large part to Superintendent Ryan Cummings, with assistance from a new irrigation system (completed June 2008).
From 1974 until 1978 Plymouth Country Club was host to the LPGA Hoosier Classic featuring 4 different winners: Joanne Carner, Betsy Cullen, Pat Bradly and Debbie Austin.
The late great golfer Payne Stewart once held the Plymouth Country Club course record. During the 1979 golf season, Stewart shot a record 63 that stood for nearly three decades until local Plymouth resident and member Justin Murphy scored a 62 on September 24, 2007.
What separates the Plymouth Country Club from many other facilities are their amenities. You'll enjoy the championship golf, men's and women's golf leagues, junior golf, complete practice facilities, a full slate of tournaments, newly surfaced tennis courts, two basketball goals, a new clubhouse (opened September 2002), and numerous social events. There is something for everyone at the Plymouth Country Club!
Another feature that separates the Plymouth Country Club from other facilities is that they encourage public play each Monday throughout the season. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to experience the Plymouth Country Club's wonderful course!
