Members and their guests

The Fairways at Twin Lakes was built in 1923 as Twin Lakes Country Club. It was designed by Sandy Alves, a golf course construction manager for the world-famous Donald Ross. Impressed by his work, Ross recommended Alves to the members at Shaker Heights Country Club. Alves was hired to supervise construction of its Donald Ross course, and when construction was finished he stayed on as the Shaker’s first Golf Professional. Eight years later, Ross and Alves were chosen to design and build a course for The Masons of Cleveland, and they created Acacia Country Club in 1920. Alves remained as Acacia’s professional until his death in 1939. While pro at Acacia, Alves designed a number of other Cleveland area courses, including the two courses at Highland Park in Cleveland, Ridgewood Golf Course in Parma, and Madison Country Club. He also designed Highland Meadows Country Club in Toledo and French Lick Resort in Indiana. And of course, he designed Twin Lakes Country Club here in Kent in 1923. The Fairways at Twin Lakes’ tree-lined corridors and rolling hills, combined with its undulating Donald-Ross-style greens, create a scenic and challenging test for golfers of every skill level! While we are now a public facility, we ask our players to respect the history and tradition of Twin Lakes. Please dress appropriately in golf attire and wear soft spikes golf shoes or tennis shoes only.
