The Story of Greeley Country Club

In 1920, Greeley Country Club opened its doors after Tom Bendelow staked out a private 9-hole course and modest clubhouse.  Tom Bendelow, nicknamed "the Johnny Appleseed of American Golf,"  is noted as the course designer to over 600 golf courses around the country, most notably Medinah Country Club and East Lake at the Atlanta Athletic Club.

In the 1960's, with a boom in the game, the club brought in Press Maxwell to complete a renovation of the course.  He designed an additional 9 holes culminating in the 18 holes that are seen at GCC today.  Along with the increase in popularity for the game of golf came the need for a more expansive clubhouse.  In 1962, the exisiting clubhouse was torn down and a new state of the art facility was created.

While the building remains the same, Greeley Country Club has been re-modeled with the historic charm in mind that suits it's 95 year history, while allowing for all of the modern amenities required in the Country Club of today.
