Detailed description of Memphis Country Club

Memphis Country Club is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Memphis, Tennessee.

Memphis Country Club first opened for play in 1917. The course was designed by Donald Ross.

Kris Spence completed a restoration of the Ross Course in 2017. He used detailed 1930 aerials and a full set of ground-level photographs of each green site.

Other than a shallow cement drainage ditch, the course has no water hazards. Ross's demanding, often-crowned putting surfaces and the placement and shape of the course's bunkers will challenge. This shot makers course has become more demanding with the growth of the trees over the years. The 6,709-yard, par-70 course carries a 73.6 rating and 142 slope from its back set of four tees.

#3, a 580 yard par-5 is narrow and straight and plays slightly uphill the entire length. The green is long and segmented.

#4 is a 154-yard par-3.  The tee box is slightly elevated giving an excellent look at a Ross "volcano" green, with the putting surface elevated with all sides having a dramatic downslope, with deep bunkering on all sides.

#7 is another par-3 playing to 181 yards. This is one of the highest handicap holes. Like #4, the green is raised with sloping falloffs with two bunkers that guard the front of the green.

#13 is a 415-yard par-4. #13 has the most severe dogleg on the course made even more difficult because of the overhang of trees at the dogleg-left's elbow.

#15 is a 457 yard par-4 that plays uphill. This is the #1 handicap hole on the course.

#18 is a 381 yard par-4 with a green shared with #9 but separated from it by two bunkers (it originally had just one large bunker). 

Memphis Country Club guards its privacy.
