About the Course
Firestone has long been synonymous with golf history. The first golf tournament hosted at Firestone Country Club was The Rubber City Open in 1954. Notable champions like Tommy Bolt, Arnold Palmer and Tom Nieporte all staked their claim to fame on its challenging bunkers, courses and fairways. The PGA Championship came to our Firestone golf facility for the first time in 1960, then returned in 1966 and 1975 with champions Jay Hebert, Al Geiberger and Jack Nicklaus. Tiger Woods also had a memorable moment when his “shot in the dark” on the 18th hole landed him a victory at the 2000 World Golf Championships – NEC Invitational.
Designed by Robert Trent Jones in 1969, the North Course, with three of the finest finishing holes in golf, and
water on 10 out of the 18 holes, is easily our Members’ favorite course.
Professional tournaments held on the North Course:
• 1994 World Series of Golf Tournament
• 1976 American Golf Classic
Designed by Tom Fazio in 2001, this links-style course is an excellent challenge that offers all types of holes
and requires every club in the bag. Most golfers agree that it has the best greens of all three courses.
Professional tournaments held on the West Course:
• 17 Ohio Senior Opens
