Submitted story



On Sunday, Oct. 22, at 2 p.m., Julie Johnson will look back at the founding of the Urbana Country Club and its acclaimed golf course, which over the past 95 years has inspired notable contributions to the game of golf both locally and internationally.

“Ohio has long been a golf-rich state, with superior venues like Scioto, Camargo, Firestone, Inverness, Muirfield Village and the Pete Dye-designed Golf Club, to name but half a dozen. Among these bigger names, the rural qualities of the Urbana Country Club, particularly after its 1993 expansion, qualify it as one of the state’s hidden gems …” (Joel Zuckerman, Pete Dye Golf Courses: Fifty Years of Visionary Design).

Learn about how it all got started and the people who were a part of its history at the Champaign County Historical Society Museum, 809 East Lawn Ave., Urbana.
