Architect

Donald Ross

The Country Club of Columbus was established in 1909 by a number of local citizens who shared a fondness for golf. These founders wisely engaged the design services of Donald Ross, arguably golf’s foremost architect. Ross designed a spectacular course calling for long, accurate tee shots, accurate iron play, precise handling of the short game and consistent putting. The course features a 6515 yard par 71 layout. Its distinguishing feature is its small TifEagle greens, protected by many strategically placed bunkers.The course was renovated in 2002 with careful detail to Donald Ross’ original plans and handwritten notes. The enhancements present a thinking golfer’s layout.

This is an old classic Ross design that has stood the test of time. The club has done a great job of preserving the Ross legacy, the greens are classic Ross with their undulations and attenion to detail. A long or short shot is punished , and you will roll off the greens into a trap or have a diffcult chip or putt to get back on the putting surface. The par 3's are fantastic and the course is very forgiving off the tee. The course was bulit on a fairly compact plot of land, Ross had to use incredile imagination in his routing. If there is one weakness of the course, it is that a few holes are literally on top of each other. Other holes, he was able to preserve a sense of soltitude and isolation. The course is in impeccable shape. The clubhouse is one of grandeur, you can clearly see that there was a time when this was a VERY prestigeous and private club. Tough economic times over the years have made this club more accessible, and I look forward to future rounds there. I found the customer service to be excellent, staff was very welcoming and happy to answer questions. The practice facility was superb, as was the tennis facility. This is a very lovely all around country club and would definately consider being a member if I lived in the Columbus area. There are a multitude of great restaurants and hotels in the city of Columbus. It is not a large city by any means, has a small town feel with a lot of southern charm. Playing a Donald Ross course is always a treat, especially ones that are well preserved as the CC of Columbus. Definately worth a round if you happen to be passsing through this part of Georgia
