The Columbus Country Club property was initially developed as an equestrian club with bridle paths laid out throughout the estate but it didn’t take long for golf to take over and Tom Bendelow is credited as the man who designed the initial 9-hole course for the owner, Orlando A. Miller.

Donald Ross added another nine holes in 1914 before returning in later years to remodel the layout. C.H. Alison upgraded holes 6, 7, 14 and 18 during the 1920s, Dick Wilson carried out work on holes 1,3,7 and 17 in advance of the 1964 PGA Championship, then Geoff Cornish and Brian Silva redesigned greens and bunkers in the late 1980s.

More recently, the club commissioned Keith Foster to draft a master plan, which Keith's protégé, Kevin Hargrave, implemented over two years. The renovation started at the end of 2016 and involved the removal of over fifteen hundred trees, the replacement of all the bunkers and the repositioning of tee boxes, all of which was done to make the course more playable for the membership.

“Hargrave did a masterful job of weaving expansive fairways through magnificent oaks, maples, and newly planted fescue areas throughout the entire course,” former Columbus Country Club general manager Jay Frank said. “We were excited to reopen and show off the renovated course to our members.”
