In 1918, five years after Forsyth Country Club was formed, A. W. Tillinghast designed a 9-hole layout for the membership. Shortly after, Donald Ross was engaged to extend the course into an 18-hole track.

Changes have inevitably been made to the course down the years, Willard Byrd and Dan Maples left their mark in the 1980s, and in the new millennium Greensboro-based Kris Spence (a Ross restoration expert) reinstated the faded classic.

According to Spence Golf, Inc: “Over the years, however, small and large changes were made to the course, and much of Ross’s genius had been lost. Recognizing that FCC owned a truly spectacular piece of real estate with significant elevation changes right in the heart of Winston-Salem, and that the course routing was still intact from possibly the greatest golf course architect ever, the next step was obvious! In 2007, Ross restoration specialist KSGD was hired to restore and update the course and bring back the classic elements of Ross courses that make them so highly regarded.”

In 2018, the club recalled Spence to consult and assist Superintendent Matt Jones and his team on a re-grassing project, whereby greens were converted to Champion ultradwarf Bermuda.
