Sedgefield Country Club, host to this month's US PGA Tour event, the Wyndham Championship, is one of North Carolina's oldest and most historic clubs.
The original Inn was purchased and converted into a clubhouse in 1925 and was completely renovated during 1992-1993.
The renovation permitted the members to retain the club's historical Tudor building while at the same time combining all the wonderful conveniences of today's modern Country Clubs.
The Clubhouse contains 48,000 square feet featuring the original main lobby which gives you a feeling of warmth and hospitality as soon as you enter it
The club, a strictly private one, open only to members and their guests, also offers high-class tennis, swimming and aerobic facilities, but is best known, though, for its magnificent 18 hole Donald Ross Golf Course.
Designed in 1925, Sedgefield has played host to many key amateur events in the Carolinas as well as hosting the PGA Tour's Greater Greensboro Open, now the Wyndham Championship, for over fifty (50) years.
Its small, undulating greens and rolling fairways create a challenge for the expert player, but the course is so designed that it also offers fun for the beginner.
Also highly regarded is its top-flight driving range and practice facility and the club's golf pro shop, always abundantly stocked with quality apparel and equipment and where clubs, caddy carts and golf cars can be hired,
As a full fledged country club, Sedgefield also offers:
An elegant 48,000 square foot Tudor style clubhouse offering first class dining and banquet facilities.
- A superb tennis facility features five composition and three hard courts. a Tennis Pro Shop, immediately adjacent to the courts, offering the latest in tennis apparel and equipment and year-round tennis activities and social events for all ages and abilities.
- A 25-meter swimming pool provides a great place for swimming activities for the entire family..
- And a 2,400 square foot Exercise and Aerobic Center features classes up to 40 people.
- Sedgefield Country Club ensures their staff is "dedicated to providing extraordinary service so that members can enjoy quality lifestyles and build lasting friendships".
On September 22, 2007, Sedgefield Country Club's famous Donald Ross Golf Course, originally built in 1926, reopened following a major 10 month, $3 Million restoration project which has transformed it back to how Donald Ross intended the course to play, while, at the same time, taking into consideration the changes in golf technology and turf grass development over the last 50 years.
The restoration of Donald Ross 1926 classic design, the club's website proudly boasts, "has positioned Sedgefield Country Club as one of the premier private country clubs in America".
