Firestone Country Club


Private course - for members and their invited guests only.
   Firestone Country Club Est. 1929

Where2Golf says: 

Located just to the south of Akron in Ohio, the private Firestone Country Club is home to three championship courses: the North, South and West. The best known of the trio is the South course, host to many top level tournaments, including US PGA and US Senior PGA Championships, as well as World Golf Championship (WGC) events.

The North Course, which was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr and opened in 1969, is noted for the scenic beauty of its lakes and streams. The West Course, a links-style layout designed by Tom Fazio in 2001, is built around the perimeter of the South Course and is home to the Ohio Senior Open.

Firestone is generally recognised as one of Ohio's top golfing venues, with its well-crafted and challenging courses. However, this is a private club with its courses generally playable only by members and their guests.

Did you know?

In 1915, Harvey Samuel Firestone, founder of the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company, purchased 1,000 acres of farmland south of his tyre factory as part of a plan to provide his employees with housing, schools, churches and a public park. Today, the entire community is considered a historic landmark along with its Firestone Country Club, Firestone Stadium and Harvey S. Firestone Memorial Park.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
