Lakewood Country Club is the only golf course in the state of Ohio that was designed by A.W. Tillinghast, one of a number of Golden Age routings in the Cleveland area.

The club twice played host to The Cleveland Open (1966, 1968), hosting the PGA’s best. An initial change to the routing occurred for that event, as the 8th hole was converted from a shorter, sharper dogleg into a longer, slighter par four for the pros to consider.

Many years later, Stephen Kay would appear to conduct restorations. The most noticeable of which was a restoration of Tillinghast’s famous “Great Hazard” (Kay opted to go above and beyond Tillinghast’s original tall-grass design and create a series of turtle-back islands in a sea of sand).

Championship golf returned to Lakewood in 2013 for the Web.com Tour’s Cleveland Open, before the club staged the re-branded event (Rust-Oleum Championship) the following year.
