Founded in 1892 as the Fairfield County Golf Club, the organization was the fourth country club established in the United States. Julian W. Curtiss served as the Club’s first president, his capacity for organization and his love for sport inspired his efforts in bringing golf to the United States through his work with the A. G. Spalding Company.
In 1909 the organization's name was changed to the Greenwich Country Club, reflecting its expansion of facilities to include various sports and social activities. Over its long history, the club evolved from a five-hole backyard venue to a gorgeous central Greenwich campus of more than 165 acres. The club now offers year-round amenities, including tennis, squash, paddle, aquatics, fitness, bowling, skeet, trap, and five-stand, and has 16 beautifully appointed guest rooms.
In 2018, world-renowned golf course architect Beau Welling led the renovation of the storied 18-hole golf course, including new bentgrass greens and bunker complexes. The project also improved the practice area with an expanded short game facility and driving range. The club features three distinctly different clubhouse dining rooms offering varying cuisine concepts, a grand ballroom, poolside café, and a casual dining venue for families.
Greenwich Country Club prides itself on providing a home away from home for its members and guests, offering world-class amenities for all interests combined with a team that delivers exceptional hospitality and service. Our current projects include relocation of 2.5 holes to adjacent property, rebuilding all tees on our property over several seasons, new maintenance facility, and golf learning center.
