Website PLAINFIELD COUNTRY CLUB
Founded in 1890 as the Hillside Tennis Club, Plainfield Country Club has enjoyed a revered reputation among families and golf enthusiasts alike. The main course was designed by Donald Ross and opened in 1921. Sports facilities also include an expansive racquets facility with tennis, platform tennis and squash courts, a new aquatics center and the “West Nine” golf course. A renovation of the Historic Clubhouse was just completed in 2019. The Golf Shop was renovated in 2016 and the Professional Staff was recognized as the 2013 PGA of America Merchandiser of the Year. PCC prides itself as a “Family Country Club with World Class Golf”.Starting in 2000, Plainfield Country Club has undergone an extensive course restoration and renovation program under the direction of architect Gil Hanse. The project included the rediscovery of lost bunkers, restoration of all existing bunkers, expansion of 16 greens, lengthening of 12 tees, installation of chipping areas, fairway rerouting, significant tree removal, a new irrigation system/reservoir and extensive practice area enhancements. The golf course is regularly ranked in the Top 100 Courses in the U.S. by Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and Golfweek.“Giving back” and hosting Championships is a priority for PCC. Its history includes the 1978 U.S. Amateur, 1987 U.S. Women’s Open, the PGA Tour’s 2011 & 2015 Barclays (now the Northern Trust), the 2018 Junior President’s Cup and countless regional and state championships. Acting as the host of PGA Tour events generated millions of dollars for local charities, including PCC’s First Tee of Plainfield program. PCC is the first private country club in the US to start and operate a First Tee program on its property.
