The Aiken Golf Club is located in the center of Aiken, South Carolina. A thriving mid-sized town, Aiken has been a mecca for people fleeing cold northern climes since its inception. Moderate winter temperatures allow year-round play in what has become the hub of golf in the Southeastern United States. Only 16 miles from the Augusta National Golf Club, The Aiken Golf Club maintains a prominent role in this ever-growing sport.
The Aiken Golf Club is steeped in golf history. Originally built in 1912, with a portion of its design attributed to John Inglis, it is one of the oldest courses in the nation. Professional golfers Babe Didrikson Zaharis and Patty Berg among others, played here. Fred Astaire and other celebrities came to Aiken during the cold winter months to test their skills. May Dunn was instrumental in making it the first course in America to feature tees especially for women.
Completely renovated and reopened to considerable fanfare during 1999, the course has never looked or played better. We invite you to come see for yourself. It will test your skill while reminding you of golf venues of old. Come be a part of golf history.
