Established in 1908, The Beverly Country Club is a mainstay in the Chicagoland golf community.
From its inception, Beverly was recognized as a championship course, a distinction that still resonates over one century later.
Beverly’s mark on American golf was firmly made when club officials decided to ask legendary architect Donald Ross to create a master plan to renovate the course and bring it back up to major championship standards. Over the course of nearly a decade, the entire Ross plan was adopted, again putting Beverly among the very finest golf courses in the country. Over the years, Beverly has been the host of four Western Open championships (1910, 1963, 1967 and 1970) and one U.S. Amateur championship (1931). Beverly also hosted the 1943 Chicago Victory National Open Championship, a wartime substitute for the National Open. Championship golf returned to Beverly in 1999 when the rejuvenated Chicago Open came to the South Side for a three-year run, with PGA Tour star Luke Donald winning in 2000. More recently, Beverly has hosted the 2009 U.S. Senior Amateur, 2011 Western Junior and the 2014 Western Amateur tournaments.
If one can correlate the strength of a course’s champions to the strength of the course, Beverly is a true test of golf. Its champions include legends like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Francis Ouimet and Chick Evans.
