The Country Club of Spartanburg

The Country Club of Spartanburg (CCS), founded in the summer of 1908, held it's first organizational meeting at the home of Mr. A. H. Twichell. A stock company was organized, land selected, fairways cleared and greens (made of sand) were prepared for a nine hole golf course. The course officially opened in the early summer of 1910 with an Englishman, Mr. Newman, as the first golf professional.

Toward the end of World War I the golf course was not used for several years, but was reactivated in 1921. What are now the first nine holes are rumored to have been laid out by the famous golf course architect Donald Ross of Pinehurst, North Carolina. The newly renovated golf course is a traditional layout with narrow fairways, undulating greens and thick rough.

The Country Club of Spartanburg has hosted such tournaments as the Carolinas PGA, Carolinas Open, Carolinas Amater, the South Carolina Amateur Championship and the Frank B. Edwards, Jr. Invitational. It has also served as a qualifying site for the United States Open, United States Amateur and Mid Amateur Championship. Until the 1960's, CCS hosted the LPGA Peach Blossom Betsy Rawls Classic, including future members of the LPGA Hall of Fame Babe Zaharias, Mickey Wright, Patty Berg, Louise Suggs and Betsy Rawls.
