Exmoor Country Club was inaugurated in 1896 and was a founding member of the Western Golf Association in 1899. One of the early clubs in the Chicago area, the Exmoor course in play today is largely a Donald Ross design from 1915.
Host venue for the U.S. Women’s Amateur in 1933 and the U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur in 1965, Exmoor was also the home club for three of members who won the U.S. Amateur: Chandler Egan (1904 & 1905); Chick Evans (1916 & 1920); and Davidson Herron (1919).
In The American Private Golf Club Guide, author Daniel Wexler describes the course as “a flat, reasonably interesting parkland course which follows much of Ross’s routing (minus five original holes) and retains a bit of his bunkering.” Ron Prichard completed a course restoration here in 2003.

Donald Ross worked with Old Tom Morris at St Andrews in 1893 then spent part of the following season at Carnoustie before returning to serve under the Dornoch club secretary John Sutherland.
