Olympia Field Golf Club | History 

  • Founded in 1915, by 1925 the club boasted four 18-hole courses and the largest private clubhouse in the world with an 80-foot, four-faced clock.

  • Olympia Fields joined only eight other American clubs - including Winged Foot, Oakland Hills, and Cherry Hills - that have hosted the United States Open Championship (1928, 2003) the United States Senior Open Championship (1997), the PGA Championship (1925, 1961) and the United States Amateur Championship (2015). In June 2017, Olympia Fields hosted the KPMG PGA Women's Championship, and in the summer of 2020, the BMW Championship, continuing such championship traditions in line with it being the "Host to Champions."
