The golf course at Myers Park Country Club has a history steeped in Golden Age architects, as A.W. Tillinghast laid out the original course. Being located in North Carolina, Donald Ross later redesigned the layout so that it could bear his name (like more than 50 other courses in the state). Rees Jones and Bobby Weed have also contributed renovations over the years, but the course is still celebrated foremost as a Ross.

Players will have a clear view of the Charlotte skyline from the first tee, and also a clear view of the fairway, as the club has sought to maintain fairly wide lanes to the green so that the architect’s intended strategic purpose can be executed. This is exemplified in fairway bunkering positioned to defend the clearest angles to these often-geometric greens, as well as instances of risk-reward heroism where appropriate, such as the approach shot at the par five No. 17. Can your approach shot carry the creek, or should you lay up?

The long hole at No. 8 is an interesting entry to the Ross oeuvre, with a green perched on the edge across the same creek. At 616 yards, finding the green in four shots may win the match point.

Myers Park hosted the 1955 U.S. Women’s Amateur when Patricia Lesser beat Jane Nelson 6&5 in the final.
