Members and their guests

Beechmont Country Club was established in 1923 when a group of seven men recognized the need for another club to sustain the growing population in the Cleveland are.These seven men became charter members of Beechmont Country Club when it was incorporated on April 3, 1923.

Upon the purchase of the current land from Samuel Kornhauser, the club acquired the services of the ‘Toronto Terror’, Mr. Stanley Thompson, to design the masterpiece in which we play on today. Using the natural topography, Thompson established a unique feature in which 15 of your approach shots are hit uphill to the green, making Beechmont always play longer than what the scorecard indicates.

In June of 1963 Beechmont was on the National stage when they played host to the Inaugural Cleveland Open. At the time, this was the largest purse ever played for in the history of golf. Nicklaus, Palmer, Snead and Trevino where just a few of the names that where her to play for their share of the $110,000 purse. In 1971 the Cleveland Open returned to Beechmont where Bobby Mitchell carded a 63, a course record that still stands today, to vault him to victory.
