Est. 1929

Located just to the south of Akron in Ohio, Firestone Country Club is generally recognised as one of Ohio's top golfing venues, with its three well-crafted and challenging championship courses, the North, South, and Fazio (formerly West course).

The best known of Firestone's 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 historic South course is Firestone’s original course.

Narrow, tree-lined fairways and immaculate conditioning defines the South course. Deep fairway bunkers with high lips may force sideways chip outs, while constant elevation changes, healthy length rough, and severe false fronted greens will keep you on your toes. The fabulous greens are firm and fast, and tough to read.

Firestone's North course, also designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr, opened in 1969. It is noted for the scenic beauty of its lakes and streams. The Fazio (formerly 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.

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.
