Considering its present prestige and reputation, Greensboro Country Club had a most humble origin. The year was 1909 and golf was a game that interested very few men and no women. Mr. McAlister opened up a five-hole pitch and putt course on the northwest corner of Summit Avenue and Dewey Street south of St. Leo's Hospital. There was no membership in Mr. McAlister's "Club” and anyone could play free of charge. Those first hardy golfers 105 years ago hung their jackets on the limbs of a young water oak tree before teeing off. Some referred to the tree as "The Club House." Two years later the first clubhouse was built which was located a few steps from the water oak tree and cost the magnificent sum of $500.00.
Our current main Clubhouse located on Sunset Drive was built in 1975 and is nestled in the heart of Irving Park. In 1969, Greensboro Country Club merged with the Carlson Farm Country Club and added many additional offerings for the membership including another 18-hole golf course, swimming pool and additional tennis courts. The Farm clubhouse which was constructed in 1975 after fire destroyed the original, was redesigned and was constructed in 2001.
Our members enjoy two 18-hole golf courses, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a state of the art fitness facility, two swimming pools and several dining locations. Whether our members are looking for fine dining or a casual night out, our restaurants provide an unforgettable dining experience. Greensboro Country Club serve
