Members and their guests

The original nine holes of Alliance Country Club was opened in 1911 on the site of the W.H. Ramsey Farm. As reported in the Alliance Daily Review. The members of the new socail organization enjoy the initial reception and dance ... the building and grounds are equipped in handsome style.

After the present clubhouse was erected in 1925, the golf course was increased to eighteen holes. Par was 71 and the course covered nearly 135 acres. Architect Calvin Black was hired for the conversion of the old nine to an entirely new layout. In 1924, Emet French of Youngstown, the 1924 PGA Champion, partnered with L. Fordice the National Amateur Champion for a match against club members H. Shannon and C.C. Sebring. In 1929, Gene Sarazen and John Ferrell played another exhibition match before a gallery paying $1.00 each.

Perhaps the most famous event held at Alliance Country Club was the Machine International LPGA Tournament in 1959. Headlines on Saturday, July 18, 1959 were "Expect 10,000 at Golf Finale." The tournament was won by Mickey Wright who defeated such pros as Patty Berg, Marlene Hagge, Marilyn Smith and a rookie by the name of Kathy Whitworth.
Alliance Country Club has been the host of the 1975 OGA Pre-Seniors Championship won by the legendary Rick Jones with a two round total of 143. Columbus CC's Dan Carmichael won the 1978 OGA Seniors at Alliance Country Club with a two round total of 149.
