Tournament History

Interlachen has a rich and storied history as the host of golf championships. Since its beginning in 1909, Interlachen has been committed to excellence - from the quality of its timeless Donald Ross classic golf course and its condition to the prestige of the championships it has hosted. The golf course is considered among Ross’ finest designs and consistently ranks among the best in the country.

The Club has been an advocate of championship golf at the highest level and has been proud to host the most prestigious events in professional and amateur golf, including the 1993 Walker Cup, 2002 Solheim Cup, and the 2008 U.S. Women’s Open. However, it was the 1930 U.S Open that was the Club’s defining moment where Bobby Jones embarked on an incredible journey in which Interlachen played a starring role.

After having just won the first two legs of the Grand Slam in England, Jones’ U.S. Open victory at Interlachen on July 12 gave Jones the third leg of the Grand Slam. Jones would achieve the Grand Slam two months later by winning the 4th leg of the Grand Slam at Merion and record one of golf’s greatest achievements. In accomplishing his Grand Slam, Jones provided Interlachen Country Club national and international prominence and its well deserved place in golf history.
